Cora’s children were raised, she was done with usual school volunteering and she was more than a little bored with bookkeeping. So she started into the bike/trike business by working a season as a mechanic in another shop. She also attended Winterborne Bike Institute in Guelph, Ontario. In 2013, Hamilton Trike and ‘bent was opened to sell recumbents and trikes to those who were looking for them – which was not simple to do in Canada. But with an increased interest in ‘three wheeled biking’ for her customers, she made it happen. Although recumbents are the majority of her sales, she wanted to add in ‘extra-ordinary’ bikes and began offering the Van Raam cycles in 2016.
