Dec 2006, where we started.
Mud Sweat and Gears Sherwood Park
Back in ’85 I entered my first Triathlon and after a good swim was first out on my K-Mart Targa road bike. Needless to say I got my doors blown off cranking that tank into the transition. The next day I was in my Local Bike Shop and walked away the proud owner of a Bianchi 12 speed. Three months and several Triathlons later the LBS ordered me a Vitus Carbon Road bike (the first in the city with index shifting). To pay for the bike the owner of the shop hired me and I worked the rest of the summer on the tools supporting my addiction.
A few years, dozens of Triathlons and a handful of Mountain Bike races later I moved to Sherwood Park and decided to start my own business fixing bikes out of the laundry room. After a couple of years the basement was over run with bikes and I decided I had better build a shop. Up went a garage and in the blink of an eye it was full and by year 16 the property was pushed to the limit.
So here we are, my wife and I took the plunge opening Mud, Sweat and Gears in December of 2006 at 133 Main Blvd.
Aug 2013, Spruce Grove.
Mud Sweat and Gears Spruce Grove
We opened up our Spruce Grove location in August 2013 at 124 1st Ave East! We saw a need for a bike/skate/snow store and we decided to take a leap of faith. We sell premium bikes from Santa Cruz, Transition, Pivot and Evil Bikes, cruisers from Electra, and our amazing Canadian brands like Kona, Norco, and Rocky Mountain. We have all the mountain bikes you need. We have bikes for the whole family, kids too!
The Spruce Grove community has been incredibly supportive and we feel like we fit in quite well. All the locals have been extremely welcoming and we’re looking forward to doing business with as many of them as we can. We offer a full service winter sports store between October and May. We carry Snowboards and Skis as well as outerwear and all the accessories you’ll need to hit the slopes.

Mud Sweat and Gears Edmonton West
2018 Marks an exciting time for the Mud, Sweat and Gears Family, after 12 years of steady growth and learning the in’s and outs of multiple locations, we have opened up our largest store yet 15007 Stony Plain Road next to the Mackinnon Ravine in Edmonton.
With the support and encouragement of our great brands, staff willing to expand their roles and responsibilities and a thirst for new challenges, March 31st marked our first day in the Edmonton Market. We encourage you to come by and say hi, have a look at our new baby, and share in the excitement of riding a bike. Life is busy now for all of us, but nothing brings it back to reality like escaping on two wheels down your favourite trail or leaving the city on a peaceful road ride.
Here’s hoping you all have a great riding season, and thanks Edmonton!
*Please note that we do not carry any winter equipment at our Edmonton location.
