in the Spring of 1996, owner Ian Dawes built the business from
scratch within the walls of a tiny white Century home he purchased
at the age of 23. With little more than a tonne of determination,
training from North America's top Bicycle Mechanic school, the
love of bicycles, and a can of purple paint...Ian has owned
and operated Ecclestone Cycle since the very beginning.
the years, Ecclestone Cycle truly grew into Muskoka's Famous
Purple Bike Shop. From its humble beginnings as a one man show
with only a few hundred square feet of showroom space, to having
numerous staff and thousands of square feet to display bicycles
and accessories, plus four mechanical bays; Ecclestone Cycle
has grown into a respected bicycle shop, servicing and stocking
the cycling industry's most reputatable brands.
1999, Ian met Allison when he sold her a bicycle...and the rest
is history. Married in 2002, Allison has worked alongside Ian
in running the business ever since. Their skill sets have blended
well. Ian, full of ideas and mechanical know-how. Allison, the
realist, organizer and paper pusher. Together they both work
the showroom floor and wrench on a daily basis. Strong supporters
of local racing, and the provincial Ontario Cup Mountain Bike
Race Series, Ian and Allison still manage to squeeze in time
riding their own bicycles.
