Tom Petrie, President of Cantitoe RoadA Message from our President

I learned to ride a bike on Cantitoe Road. It was there that I fell in love with cycling and a bicycle's magical ability to amplify one's physical efforts. As a child, I'd been told fairy tales about "Seven League Boots" (the protagonist puts on the boots and can then travel seven leagues with each stride). Surely a bicycle was the realization of this fantasy. I was amazed and delighted at the freedom a bicycle conferred and every weekend I'd organize "bike hike" adventures for myself riding to what I presumed were the far reaches of the county on my balloon-tired Columbia bicycle with steer-horn bars. I've never lost my childhood infatuation with bicycles. Every time I throw my leg over one, that magical feeling of wearing those wonderful Seven League Boots returns.

The Cantitoe Road site sells bicycle parts, tools, and accessories. We ride and use everything we sell. We also sell some non-cycling related things we like because...well, because we like them. I hope you enjoy your experience on this site. If you have any suggestions, comments, or feedback, I hope you'll write me.

Tom Petrie, President
