Synopsis

Built upon hours of extensive research and personal interviews, Canada Cycle & Motor: The CCM Story traces the fascinating history of this uniquely Canadian company from its founding in 1899 until its eventual demise in 1983. 

The story draws together a diverse cast of some of Canada’s best-known businessmen, celebrated athletes and colourful con artists to paint an unforgettable picture of Canada’s rich cultural heritage. 

Supported by 150 vintage photographs and company advertisements, Canada Cycle & Motor: The CCM Story touches upon the very core of the Canadian identity and is sure to spark fond memories for those who grew up with CCM bikes and CCM skates. 

 

Praise for McKenty’s previous work: 

 

Readers will find a wealth of information on an era and institution that is all but missing from today’s motoring landscape. -Ian Gray, Perth Courier 

 

McKenty recounts his short stories with a droll wit. Certainly, his subjects are hard to beat. -Max Wickens, Toronto Star
