Thornton’s has always been there to help me select the right bikes and gear for my entire family - kids bikes, tandems, hybrids, road bikes and touring bikes. Greg and the rest of the team have tons of knowledge and experience and never make me feel like the amateur that I am!

I love this place. I live in St Catharines but I will drive to Welland. Kenny helped me out with getting a bike that actually fit me and my needs. Greg did an amazing job getting my bike back to top shape after I hammered on it for the first season. I’m a huge fan.
