About: the Full Story

 

The Beginnings

To see where Cycling Elements began, its best to investigate the original logo and the name its self.  Cycling Elements is a play on the periodic table, at school Jeff studied engineering and often referenced the periodic table.  After much thought, he ended his engineering schooling and went in a new direction.  Taking the 4 key elements he deemed necessary to start a successful bike shop: Passion, Bikes, Gear and Service.  Then adding a splash of purple to honor his years at Ecclestone Cycle in Bracebridge, the original concept for the Cycling Elements Brand was born.   Since opening in 2012, the original logo might have been replaced but the core elements are still there: Passion, Bikes, Gear and most importantly Exceptional Customer Service.

Timeline:

1896 The main structure erected as Armstrong Foundry producing and repairing local machinery.  They developed a reputation for being able to solve any problem

1940’s Fire gutted the building and destroyed the original peaked roof, simultaneously the local bank was robbed.  It is assumed the burning of the Armstrong foundry was a distraction for the thieves to complete their job
