Meet Our Team
Greg Watson – El Presidente

Cole Watson – Owner
Years at CyclePath: Is "Forever" a suitable answer?.
Bikes: Custom Kona Honzo, United Bmx, State fixie, and a 1964 Raleigh Sport for cruising around on.
Best Place to Ride: Honestly, has to be the Medicine Hat area - We are super lucky here. If I had to choose elsewhere, probably Squamish - It's a paradise out there.
Other Interests Outside of Bikes: I could talk cars all day long, and I am crazy about my dogs.
Favourite Band/Artist: Super tough one, but I would have to go with Judas Priest.
Special Mentions: Fun fact: my great great great grandfather is credited for building the first bicycle in Norway.

Dream Bike: Here we go: Evil Offering with full Kashima Fox suspension, Specialized tires, RaceFace NextR cranks and wheels, and an electronic Sram AXS Eagle drive train. Then equip it with all the OneUp EDC goodies.
After Ride Ritual: Beer + patio = happy place
Interests Outside of Cycling: I'm a busy father of three girls, but I'm also an avid gamer, and BBQ connoisseur.
Special Mentions: With over a decade in the bike shop and multiple certifications from the industry, I still feel like each day at work is another day in paradise. I've been an active board member with the 670 Collective Mountain Bike Club for several years now and I look forward to continuing to give back to the cycling community here in Medicine Hat.
Trent Allard – Senior Technician
Years at CyclePath: Been working at CyclePath for 22 years now.
Bikes: I have too many to list here, but I do have a couple favourites. My go-to road bike would be my Colnago C59 with full Italian parts spec including a Campagnolo Super Record drive train. My mountain bike pick is my custom build steel Kona Honzo..
Dream Bike: Replace my C59 frame with a Colnago Master and there you have it!
Best Riding Spot: Road - Mount Saint Helen was amazing. Mountain - Whitehorse... and Canmore... and Whistler... and Bend Oregon... If I had to choose one place to ride road and mountain, I would have to pick Medicine Hat. No matter what I'm riding, this place is hard to beat.
After Ride Ritual: An Ice cold Radler.
Best Show You've Been To: Huey Lewis and the News!
Special Mentions: Shoutout to Specialized tall socks, they're just so good.
Chris Halibert – Technician
Years at CyclePath: This’ll be my 6th year back at the bike shop, and I’m lovin it... “BEST JOB EVER”
Bikes: I’m currently riding my sweet new Kona Honzo DL, I also have a Electra Rat Fink in green metallic flake with ape hangar bars, which is my totally cool raked out cruiser.
Favourite Bike: Call me sentimental, but my favourite bike was a 1990 Specialized Rockhopper, with Shimano biopace chainrings. Man, did she perform, but then again I was almost 30 years younger, few pounds lighter, and more courage than brain.
Favourite Place to Ride: Most of my riding was done in Lethbridge growing up... mostly in the river bottom. Here in the Hat, I love my “late night” rides around the city trail system, mostly on the cruiser. If I’m on my mtb, it’ll be Redcliff or Elkwater.
Other Interests Outside of Bikes: I’m an avid hiker and camper, love going deep into the back country and spending time with nature. I love books and music, and have an interest in art. I’ve recently taken up archery and enjoy how relaxing and challenging it is.
Favourite Band/Artist: I’d have to say my favourite band would have to be Van Halen. My favourite artist would have to be Eric Clapton.
Special Mentions: Thanks to my family and friends for supporting me in everything I do. I love Canada for all the opportunities and experiences. Shoutout to my Cyclepath family, who are some of the most down to earth, knowledgeable and supportive people I’ve had the pleasure of working with.
