St. Croix Cycle & Marine:

Faithfully Serving the Community for over 50 Years

St. Croix Cycle & Marine was founded in 1965 by Louis St. Croix near the picturesque village of St. Georges, Manitoba. Originally known as “St. Croix Saw Service and Sales”, a dealer of Honda, Arctic Cat snowmobiles, Mercury outboard motors and Homelite chainsaws to name a few, it was the place to get your toys and have them repaired. Throughout the years, many adventures were made possible because of Louis’ Vision.

When Louis passed in 2007, Family friend Ron Bard, a Red seal Journeyman mechanic who previously worked for McNaught Motors in Winnipeg as shop foreman, partnered with the family in 2008. Eventually Ron took over the business and used his expertise in the Automotive industry to diversify St. Croix’s by adding Automotive Service to the Menu.

“Ride On!” is the expression of the day on the last Sunday in July. The Louis St. Croix Memorial Ride was organized by Lucille, Louise, and Rene St. Croix to honour Louis’ memory and his love of riding motorcycles. The first ride was held in July 2007. St. Croix Cycle still hosts the Ride every year.
Riders meet at the new St. Croix location for a day of riding, it is typically to the Whiteshell or Gimli.

After almost 10 years of operating out of the old Chapel’s Auto Building in Powerview, with the help of his longtime friends and Co-workers, Alan Pepin, Fred Buchberger, Rene St. Croix, Larry Kiziak, Tim Ch artier and Mark McHugh, Ron had the new St. Croix Cycle built at the intersection of 304 and 11 on Power Drive.
