La Bicicletta’s place in the Canadian cycling world and beyond, dates back to the early 80’s when Guiseppi Cramerotti moved from Italy to Canada and opened the first store in Vancouver. After selling the Vancouver location, he moved La Bicicletta to Bloor West Village in Toronto. It is here that Henry Erlichman appeared on the scene. At the time it was difficult to find road bikes in Toronto and so Henry an avid cyclist, spent his free moments at La Bicicletta. When Guiseppi indicated he was interested in selling the Toronto store, Henry jumped at the opportunity. That was over twenty years ago! In 2001 the store relocated to a spacious spot on Castlefield Avenue in Fairbank Village, where it has flourished ever since.
