Thornton's Cycle & Sports has been serving Niagara's cyclists since 1988. We're a family run business co-owned by Greg Thornton and his sister, Gloria Hiebert. Greg's son Kenny is the 3rd-generation of the family to be in the bicycle business. Greg and Gloria learned the trade from their father, William Thornton, who owned Norman's Cycle & Sports in St. Catharines for 35 years. Greg has been assembling and repairing bikes since he was a young boy.
Over Two Decades of Biking Experience
Since 1988, the store has expanded four times to accommodate more bikes, clothing, accessories and repair needs for our customers. Cyclists throughout the region come to Thornton's as we're known to have a great selection at fair prices.
Put the Pedal to the Metal in Welland
Like any business cycling has its peaks and valleys. These days, it is very popular as families are discovering the joy of biking. Off-roading is also very popular in Niagara and we're pleased to have been able to enter Thornton's teams in a variety of events. Now in our 28th year in business, we feel we couldn't have picked a better occupation to be in. The years have just flown by and our faithful customers have become our friends. We welcome you to visit us if you haven't already. And to our great customers, we look forward to seeing you soon!
