Our bike shop is a family business. We
have been established for over 30 years under 3 different names. We
started in 1980 in the basement of the family home as Richard's Bicycle Repair.
We eventually decided to expand and opened our first bicycle shop called the
Bikeway in Paris in 1991. In the spring of 1996 we relocated to Brantford under
the Cyclepath banner and became The Brantford Cyclepath. Our business has grown
steadily over the years to become a major destination for cyclists and families
in the Brantford, Paris, Simcoe, Waterford, Port Dover and Delhi areas.
We now carry just about every kind of bike. Cross Country Mountain Bikes, Full
Suspension Bikes, Freeride Bikes, BMX, Freestyle and Jumping Bikes,
Children's bikes, Hybrids, Comfort Bikes, Road Racing and Touring Bikes,
Trail-a-Bikes, Trailers, Cruisers and adult tricycles. We additionally
handle bikes for special needs.

father was a track cyclist in London England in the 1930's. Richard has been
riding bikes for more than 50 years and in the early years was a avid club
cyclist and member of the South Eastern Road Club participating in hill
climbing, time trials, and touring. In those days a fixie bike was the norm. He
has toured extensively in Europe, Germany, Spain and Ireland to name a few
locations as well as most of the UK. He came to Canada in 1969 and was a
founding member of the Ontario Cycling Association in 1973 and a board member
in 1975/76. Richard has been a major contributor to recreational cycling in
Ontario and a founding member of Great Canadian Bicycle Tours. In the

the 3rd generation with a passion for cycling. He started touring at 6 years
old with the family and hasn't stopped. Stuart has cycled throughout Ontario
and most of the Northeastern USA. As a teenager in the 1980's, he started
mountain biking to "Get off the road on hot summer days" and has been hooked
ever since. In 1994 Stuart started mountain bike racing and has entered almost
every kind of cross-country mountain bike event, including more than a dozen 24
hour races, one of them being solo. Stuart ran the Brantford Cyclepath Bicycle
Club from 1996 to 2005 and spearheaded The 8 Hours Multiple Sclerosis MTB Team
Relay in Paris from 2000 to 2004, raising nearly $37,000 for the Multiple
Stuart started spinning wrenches in the family bike repair
shop in the basement at the age of 9. By the age of 14 he was building wheels
and was working to improve all of his mechanical skills. Making all things two
wheeled work better has been a lifelong pursuit. When Stuart's father
opened The Bikeway in Paris in 1991, he worked there part-time until 1993
when he became the full time mechanic. In 1996, as The Bikeway evolved and
moved to Brantford as The Brantford Cyclepath, Stuart took on the helm of the
service department, and over the last few years has taken on the regular
day-to-day management of the company. More recently, Stuart has completed the
Specialized BG FIT course and is working towards his FIT
Julian has been riding bicycles since the
age of seven. He has an enthusiasm for any and all forms of cycling and has
recently made a return to full time bicycle commuting. Julian became
involved with BMX riding during the late 1970's and became fully committed to
the sport during the BMX explosion of the 1980's, where he found himself
working full time in a BMX shop in Edmonton Alberta. He has ridden freestyle
and skate park BMX from the early days of the sport and has an extensive
knowledge of the history of BMX. Julian then became an early adopter of
mountain biking as the fledgling sport was just beginning. He was one of
a small handful of local Edmonton riders to first own one of these tough
looking bikes and fondly remembers the weekly trials and off-road group
sessions of those formative years. He has ridden mountain bikes, both geared
and single speed, ever since. He has owned and ridden nearly every form of bike
including road, touring, duathlon, cyclo-cross, BMX, trials, mountain bikes and
tandems. If you can pedal it, he is into it. He has recently added a recumbent
to his large stable of bikes.
Julian has been a member of The Brantford
Cyclepath team since 2003.
