A1 Cycle was started in 2013 by long time Brantford resident, Mike Longhurst. Mike loves cycling and when he's not at the shop, he can often be found riding the many trails around Brantford. 

The first store was in unit 20-A1 (guess how we got our name) at Brantford's Artisan's Village in West Brant.  It wasn't long before A1 needed more space and Mike found a perfect location on Colborne Street West.  

Thanks many to customer referrals, A1 again needed more space and the hunt for a new location began in the fall of 2019.  In early 2020, A1 found itself back in the Artisan's Village, just steps from its first location.
