Ron discovered bicycle racing 50 years ago, and has remained engaged in the sport ever since.  Against stiff odds, After a 6 year stint on the Canadian National Team during which time he amassed many national titles in both road and track disciplines, and against long odds (very few North Americans had ventured to Europe at that time) he landed a professional team contract.  After 7 years as a pro, he stepped into the role of Canadian National Road Coach, and then Director of National Racing Programs.    Today, his commitment to cycling includes organizing The Hayman Classic, which has grown to play an important role in nurturing new talent.


As digital sublimation became a viable means of customizing cycling wear, Ron joined forces with his wife to launch a small Canadian custom cycling line.  The line grew quickly thanks to his knowledge of cycling and many contacts and her vast experience in operating a sewing factory.  As production capacity became a bottleneck, and through a chance contact with Wayne of Rider Sports Fashion, a lasting friendship and business relationship ensued.  In 2013 Ron introduced Canada to Jakroo Custom Apparel.  The rest is history.
