March 26, 2017 – Cranks Bicycle Garage
The cranks family
This week we meet the family behind the business Cranks Bicycle Garage. I have known this family for a few years now, and they are very supportive of the local community. El took part in riding a fixed gear bike in a relay team across Australia last year to raise money for charity! Incredible effort and looked to be an experience locked away in the memory forever!
What brought you to Wynnum?
We both love the water! Being close to the ocean is important to us both.
Now we have a chance to combine our love of cycling with living in the Wynnum area and contribute to our local community through our family owned business.

Do you have any interesting / memorable experiences in Wynnum?
We also love to contribute through Cranks wherever we can in creating a like minded community. Cycling is a passion for us and encouraging others to get out on the roads or pathways is something we love! Helping people gain experience and learn to cycle safely is important to us; cycling is for everyone!
Wynnum is an awesome place to live if you love being a part of an active, energetic fitness community for people of all ages!

People who have a heart to continue to develop our culture and local community. Our area is unique and has some really exciting possibilities as we continue to move forward. We love the family environment and great local people who make it the great place it is; we love getting to know them and a little about their story!
