Kickbike Ontario is a family owned business going on 16 years, owned and operated by the Knight family of Brampton, Ontario, Canada. We serve Canadians who have a strong interest in health and fitness. Many of our customers are looking for low impact ways to commute and exercise.
Rodger Knight (pictured above at the Grand Canyon and below with wife Dianna at the first ever Canadian Footbike Championships at York University in 2013), is the principle owner and a retired high school phys-ed and mathematics teacher.

Rodger currently volunteers as a basketball and track coach at Central Peel Secondary School in Brampton Ontario.
Wife Dianna, also a retired high school mathematics teacher is now working as an interior designer. Son Jesse, has completed his masters in medical imaging through the BioMedical Engineering Program at the University of Guelph. Jesse currently is working for the research department for St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto working on algorithms for infectious diseases in third world countries.
All three have traveled extensively throughout Europe, Canada and the United States on their Kickbikes.
