About us

Switched on Cycles was established by Kim Houghton and Simone Annis in 2009 to bring good quality, mid priced electric bicycles to Canberra and the region. We strongly believe that e-bikes are fun to ride and a great alternative to cars, but that the majority of bike shops don't cater that well to needs of e-bike riders (who don't always come to cycling from a sporting background). These bikes extend your range without making you sweat (too much!) and help you get to work or keep up with the kids. Whether your interest is getting back on a bike, or keeping on the bike, we have a bike to suit your needs.

Our mechanical services, such as transforming the bike in your back shed into an e-bike and customising bikes, are provided by the exceptional and highly experienced Canberra bike mechanic, Alex Mcnee from the Natural Engine Shop. Our electrical services, such as testing batteries and diagnosing electrical faults are provided by Chris Drury, e-bike rider (Chris originally came to us as a customer) and retired CSIRO technican (these guys are great at problem solving).  

In order to keep the costs of our bikes down, we run our business our home in O'Connor. Generally, (but not always), our showroom is open Monday to Friday 9.30-3.00. We open on the weekends and after work by appointment/ mutual arrangement: most Sundays, but not Saturdays as, during term time, our kids do a lot of sport. We also have a stall at a number of events in Canberra and the region throughout the year. Please give us a call to book a test ride, view our product range or have a chat about electric bikes.
