Jonathan Canning: C2C’s New Workshop Manager


You may have realized by now, but in case you have been hiding under a rock these past couple of months, we have welcomed in a new addition to the Cycle2City family! Jonathan Canning is our new full-time mechanic and Workshop Manager, who has a wide experience in all fields of bikes, particularly specializing in road bikes.

Originally from Mt. Isa, Jonathan moved to Brisbane in 2000 after working in the Mt. Isa mines as a fitter. In 2006, he began working as a mechanic at My Bike Shop in Mitchelton where two years later he became the manager.

In late 2009, Jonathan left My Bike Shop to work at Velo Bicycles in the Grange, later going on to work at 99 bikes and then again on to NRG Cycles. Before joining us here at Cycle2City, Jonathan was the operations manager/wheel builder at Velocity Wheels Australia.

With all of this background knowledge and experience behind him, it is safe to say that whatever your problem is, Jonathan can fix it! Both friendly and professional, Jonathan is here to help every Monday – Thursday, 8:00am – 4:00pm. So if you haven’t already, come and say hi and give a huge welcome to our great new mechanic 🙂





PEDAL BRISBANE – A bicycle exhibition encouraging and promoting cycling through art, film, talks, innovations, and initiatives. 


Level II, Factory I, Absoe, 51 Mollison Street, West End. 


Friday night, 15 November 2013, one night only. 


6pm – midnight 


When two Brisbane friends met up during the Copenhagen Summer, they returned home with a vision: they wanted to see more people riding bicycles in Brisbane. Mara Quinn and Ciara Denham (Ireland), both specializing in photography, art and graphic design. They are passionate environmentalists and eager cyclists.


Following their separate trips to Europe over the 2013 summer they came together to form a non-for-profit event Pedal: A bicycle exhibition encouraging and promoting cycling through photography, film, talks, innovations, and initiatives. Supported by Mountain Goat, Brisbane City Council, Cycle2City, Peppermint Magazine, Treadlie Magazine, Bicycle Queensland, and GEAR shop Brisbane. They want YOU to join them in spreading bicycle culture in Brisbane.


The evening begins with a group ride ‘Style Over Speed’ convoy riding from the CBD to the event in West End (where people are encouraged to ride in their best attire, no lycra!), the event then runs until midnight. This unique event combines information, art, and a party atmosphere. Pedal is for all cycling types, celebrating any kind of two-wheel rider: BMX, road racers in lycra, lazy Sunday cyclists, leisure riders, family, city commuters, bicycle couriers etc.


As well as photography, which will be the main focus of the event, there will be film screenings and a Go-Pro mash-up of Brisbane cycling footage. Pedal will host short information talks and activities, including riding on the eight-seater bike bus, sprint racing on the stationary ‘roller-races’, and having a go on the ‘crazy-bike’!


All photography will be for sale on the night, along with a bar of organic beers and wines, and multiple bicycle food-venders including Street Food Australia and Hellhound Hotdogs.


Attendees are encouraged to ride their bikes to event, people of all levels of cycling are welcome! Pedal is a family friendly event inviting all cyclists and non-cyclists alike.


Pedal Brisbane promise an evening of laughs, creativity, and spinning wheels.


There is an optional $10 door donation with the chance to win door prizes including two 6-month memberships to Cycle2city (worth over $400 each), merchandise from Gear, 12-month Bicycle Queensland membership (worth $90), 12-month subscription to Peppermint Magazine, and 12-month subscription to Treadlie Magazine.
