Living Local in Mount Pleasant

To continue sharing what we love in the areas we live, we’ve picked another special local business that WE think YOU need to know about. We have a special connection with this business as one of our team members, Rob Vrooman, is an avid cyclist and former member of Canada’s National Cycling Team!

Bikes For All is an East Vancouver Bike shop that takes great pride in getting EVERYONE on a bike. They offer new or used bikes of all kinds - hybrid, road, city, mountain, cruisers, touring bikes or commuters. They also offer bike restoration, bike maintenance, accessories for sale, lessons and bike rentals. Bikes For All helps out their community by refurbishing donated bikes and redistributing them to individuals that need them.

Pop into their shop just off Main Street on East 7th and pick the perfect bike for you, then get those tires moving and visit our pre-sale Display Centre just up the road on Kingsway. Just to make commuting on your bike easier, the VyaLving team has thoughtfully designed the exterior of the building for easy movement throughout. For example, the addition of an elevator stop makes front and rear door accessibility for residents coming in and out with a bike, stroller or groceries, a breeze.

VyaLiving donates over $1,000 to the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House

From all of us at VyaLiving, thank you for supporting our cause. We had very successful Christmas Tree Sales with over $1,000 raised for the Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House located right here in East Vancouver. This volunteer community group’s mission is to make Mount Pleasant a better place to live by enhancing the lives of the people who live here and in turn, strengthening the community. Their challenge has been raising funds to help develop innovative programs and services that meet the changing needs of a diverse population. We are proud to help them reach their goal this year.
It’s important to us that VyaLiving becomes a welcome part of the Mount Pleasant community. For more information on VyaLiving and Mount Pleasant check out our map of the Mount Pleasant community.

Living Local in Mount Pleasant

VyaLiving believes in supporting our East Vancouver community and sharing things we love about where we live. Mount Pleasant has an incredible array of local businesses – coffee shops, clothing stores, restaurants and breweries.

One of our favourites to hit up any day of the week is Main Street Brewing Company. Located in one of Vancouver’s few surviving industrial heritage buildings, Main Street brews up a great variety of our favourite beers. From Pilsner to Imperial Stout, there is something for everyone. Not to mention the Session IPA recently took first place in the category “Best North American Ale” at the recently held BC Craft Beer Awards. If you want a little nibble while you imbibe, they also have a great bar menu full of locally sourced organic food.
