Exciting news is rolling onto campus this week, and it’s coming in on two wheels.
Quest’s favorite cycle shop, Corsa Cycles, is coming to campus. Renovations have already begun to create a space for the satellite shop, which will be known as Corsa Cycle’s ‘Pit Stop’. The little shop will bring several exciting benefits to the Quest community.
The Pit Stop will offer many services, such as acting as a drop off point for folks wanting to have their bikes serviced at Corsa Cycles, but that don’t have an easy way to get their bike downtown while it’s in need of repair.
The new store will be home of Corsa’s premium mountain bike demo and rental center — with daily Mountain Bike and E-Mountain Bike rentals.
“We will offer on-the-spot bike servicing to put an end to ride-killing mechanical failures,” Quinn-Sears said, filling in some more details, “we’ll also have all the necessities that riders may have forgotten on their way to the trailhead. Think tubes, flat tire repair kits, nutrition and beverages, water bottles, gloves, and even a small selection of clothing and gear.”
Corsa received access to their new location this week, the process of preparing the space to move in is well under way. Pit Stop will be located in the northernmost bay of the Quest RecPlex and plans to open their doors in early April.
“We welcome all opportunities to connect with our local community. This new partnership with Corsa Cycle is a wonderful example of how this can happen.” says Dr. George Iwama, Quest’s President, and Vice-Chancellor. “The new shop will not only provide benefits to Quest students, but also to the surrounding community. We are a gateway to self-knowledge and education, as well as to fitness, health and fun.”
Last summer, Corsa Cycles graciously hosted a viewing party for one Quest’s LEAP students, Haley Batten, as she competed in the Tokyo Olympics. Quest is thrilled to be working with Corsa once again.
Pit Stop expects to be open 9am-5pm almost everyday, but they anticipate hours may fluctuate as they gauge the needs of riders in the area. Updates will be available on social media (@CorsaCycles), as well as on Corsa’s website.
