Seasons greetings, friends!
As 2015 comes to a close we want to reach out with a sincere THANK YOU for your support and encouragement as Totem Cyclery was founded during one of the busiest months of the season and, given the circumstances, with little room for preparation. We are beyond excited to be here, in this city and neighborhood that we have come to know and love, to continue to serve the community with what we believe is a unique and personable approach.

WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Certainly many people have asked “Why Totem?” In many cultures throughout the world both past and present, the Totem concept represents a unification of like-minded people; a gathering place, a source of inspiration, and a reminder of our beliefs or values. In a lot of ways the bicycle has become a totemic symbol of freedom, function, exploration, challenge, youthfulness, an alternative to the status quo for some, health & fitness for others, and more than just a material object. It means a lot of different things to a lot of different people, but anyone who knows the joy of riding a bike can agree on one thing – life would not be as fulfilling without it. With this in mind, Totem Cyclery is here for everyone and anyone who shares this love of the bicycle. We honor tradition, but are not chained to the past. Our path led us here – with intent, but never forced, and ever evolving.
Since our official opening took place near the end of the season, we decided to postpone our grand opening party until Spring in order to properly kick off the 2016 riding season. Look for more updates on this in the near future, but expect this event to be held in the March-April timeframe. All we can tell you for now is that it is going to be incendiary. As in “Russell, your guitar tone is…is…incendiary.”
2016 AND BEYOND
The slower winter months have given us a chance to pause and reflect and plan for the future. Some exciting things will be happening this coming season. For one, our sidewalk vending machine which has been out of order will be functional again in the next month or two for 24hr access to tubes, locks, and other small parts. An amazing handmade storefront sign is in process as well as some interior painting and light remodeling. Additionally, we will be introducing recurring group rides and other community events. Hopefully this will all coincide with the approval of the proposed Broadway Protected Bike Lane and other related Bike Denver events. We encourage you to get involved and voice your opinion regarding these important infrastructure improvements that will make city travel safer for all types of road users.
Meanwhile, we are currently enjoying a retreat in the mountains during the holidays and will reopen on Tuesday, January 5th.
Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with other shop happenings.
Forward ever, backward never.
