John A McKenty, the author of Canada Cycle & Motor: The CCM Story, will be having a book signing tomorrow at 2 pm at Frontlines, at 1844 Weston Rd.
His book chronicles the rise and fall of one of Weston’s—and Canada’s—great businesses. CCM made bicycles in Weston from 1917 until 1983; the factory was where the Tim Horton’s on Lawrence stands now.
Canada Cycle & Motor: The CCM Story is a 350-page book told from the grassroots, with 150 illustrations, photographs, and vintage ads.
A portion of the proceeds from the book will go to Bicycles for Humanity, an organization that sends bikes to Namibia and Malawi.
