Celebrate the Royal Canadian Bicycle Club’s 125 Years, meet our local historian and take away your own artifact

From the founding of the Royal Canadian Bicycle Club in 1891 to the current year – the Royals’ 125th anniversary – there is a rich and diverse history that embodies the transformation of the neighbourhood, the City of Toronto, and our Canadian nation, in bricks, mortar and spirit! From bicycles, baseball, bowling, billiards, football, curling and more, the club has supported a Canadian love of sport for generations, a heritage linked to the traditions and principles of many of Toronto’s historic institutions.
