Meet the Team
Owner, Head Bike Mechanic, Salesperson, Bike Tour Guide
This guy has been around...around cycling, that is. If he isn't sharing a story, painting a picture or fixing a bike, he is out somewhere riding. With 12 years experience in cycle-tourism, he knows a thing or two about riding, exploring and connecting. Pete has worked as a Bike Guide and Tours Coordinator with Freewheeling Adventures and Rent-a-Bike Ottawa. He is a certified Teacher with the Ontario College of Teachers. His passions include cycling, storytelling, and travelling.
Manager, Marketing, Web Design, Salesperson, all the background stuff that makes everything run smoothly.
This gal loves to get out there and learn new things, and riding is just the ticket! With 10 years customer service experience and 12 years as a Teacher, Julie's been around...around the world, that is. She has taken her love for Arts and cycling to the UAE, Cambodia, Bali, Vancouver, and many more beautiful places. She has written an Art education book, "The Artist in You", that has been picked up by Hachette Children's Publishing House, and is available for purchase at Amazon and in local Bookstores in Perth, On.
Inventory Manager & Buyer
Brent has been with us since the beginning and he loves all things Bikes. He started working in bike shops at age 15. Whether it be in his hometown of Deep River, or in Ottawa, or in Toronto, this guy has devoted his life to his passion for bikes and riding. He especially loves endurance mountain biking and has twice raced his bike for 24 hours. In the shop, we often say, "What can't Brent do?" because when he's not riding or fixing bikes, you will find him singing in a choir, performing on stage, juggling, unicycling, balloon animal making.....but he swears that he is not a clown. Brent is currently living in Omaha Nebraska, and works remotely for Heritage Bikes. We have our fingers crossed that he will return sooner rather than later.
Full time Salesperson
Meet Bridgette from Queenstown, New Zealand. Queenstown known as the adrenalin capital of New Zealand is home to many adventure tourism companies and the birthplace of Bungy jumping, just don't ask her if she jumped, she's not saying. A vibrant cycling culture with many adventure races is where Bridgette's love for outdoor cycling took off as she explored the local roads and competed in Duathlons. She took her biking indoors and as a certified Les Mills RPM instructor taught cycling classes at the gym. A natural when it comes to frontline and customer service with over 10 years she's always ready to assist and get involved. After moving to the area 5 years ago with her husband and children Bridgette's been busy. You'll find her immersing herself in Yoga Teacher Training, on the slopes as a certified snowboard instructor in the cold months and out on the road bike discovering the countryside in the warmer months.
KRISTOF De HULSTERS
Part-time Salesperson and bike mechanic
Hailing from the same country as the great Merckx, Kris grew up on bikes in Belgium. Ever since he could walk, he could ride a bike. Interested in how things work, Kris found himself quickly taking bikes apart to see how the components create the whole. What was a hobby at the time, became a profession and career in product development when he grew up. Now he works as a product designer, but he hasn't forgotten where this passion all came from: cycling. Kris loves to chat with customers about what is latest in tech, go for group rides on blistering hot days, get bikes ready to roll again and a strong, bitter coffee in the morning. Oh, and he's also pretty big on cycle touring.
Part-time bike mechanic
Dan makes things work better. Whether bringing new life to an iconic Sekine real steel road bike (built in Manitoba, Canada) or meticulously cutting scarf joinery for the timber frame at the home of Heritage Bikes, Dan is far more than a mechanic, he is an Artist. Sporting a handlebar mustache and the same haircut as his grandfather from wartime photographs, Dan will make your bike run like a top. That said, "It's gotta start with good materials" smiles Dan. If you've got an old British sixty's cruiser or a Domane SLR 7, Dan can build, repair, and make that ride simply run superior! Thank you Dan! You are the best
