Adam Koeslag

Full-time bike mechanic

We first met Adam a few years ago when he came into the shop for a bike repair. We loved his passion and enthusiasm for bikes and riding! We'll never forget what he said during our first meeting, "you guys saved my life!!" Yup...Heritage Bikes, Saving Lives :D We knew that moment that we wanted Adam to work with us. It took two years of hinting and nudging, and he finally started to work with us this Spring. When he isn't in the shop, you can find him ripping on the trails he built on his mountain bike, or riding his BMX on the Conlon Pump Track, or touring on his single speed gravel bike on the roads by his house OR growing something delicious in his garden. Come by the shop and catch Adam test riding a bike in his bright green full-face helmet!

Sonya Stuhec-Leonard

Full-time Salesperson

Sonya's love of the outdoors and adventures naturally translated into her love of bikes. She picked up road riding and gravel and is now getting into bike touring. When she's not in the store you can find her riding, working on DIY projects or trying out a new recipe. 

Brent Maguire - Inventory Manager & Buyer

BRENT MAGUIRE

Part-time Sales person and bike mechanic

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 with his wife and son in beautiful Perth Ontario.
