Launch day

Founded in 1978 by Dennis Mizerski and Krys Tomaszewski, two Polish immigrants with a devotion to the European-style sport of road cycling, Racer Sportif stands as one of the Greater Toronto Area's oldest bike shops. Their passion was not just limited to retail; both founders raced at an elite level in Canada and engaged in coaching at the highest levels in cycling and triathlon. This unique blend of competition and mentorship formed the backbone of a community hub that has attracted both enthusiasts and professional cyclists.


Innovation and Growth

As Racer Sportif retail grew, the founders’ ambitions to innovate led to the creation of the Aquila Cycle brand in the late 1980s. This endeavor marked a significant milestone, with Aquila Cycling becoming synonymous with quality and performance, reflecting the founders' dedication to excellence in cycling.


A Family Tradition

Today, Racer Sportif is a proud second-generation family business. The Oakville location is expertly managed by Dennis's sons and daughter, who continue the family legacy of cycling excellence and community involvement.


Community and Contribution

Since our doors opened in 1978, Racer Sportif has been committed to uniting the cycling community through organized rides and supporting youth development programs. Additionally, our involvement in various annual charity rides highlights our dedication to contributing positively to the sport that defines us. These efforts are a testament to Racer Sportif's dedication to enriching and fostering growth within the local cycling community.


Heritage of Expertise Evolved

Racer Sportif, a specialty cycling outfitter, initially carved a niche by catering to road racers. Over time, we have expanded our expertise to include gravel, track, and triathlon cycling. Today, we are renowned not only for our comprehensive range of equipment but also for offering invaluable experience and guidance to cyclists across all disciplines



Racer Sportif Today

As we look to the future, Racer Sportif remains dedicated to the sport of cycling, in a variety of forms, continuously evolving and adapting, yet always staying true to our roots. We invite you to join us on this journey, to experience the thrill of the ride and the community we continue to build together.
