Harold Blissett , the founder was born on February 9, 1926 and died on March 14, 2003. He started his bicycle training at the age of thirteen and was tutored by his uncle Frederick Anderson and his brother Sydney. In 1943 at the age of 17, Harold Blissett decided to pursue a career in cycling and became a professional cyclist. He was the first cyclist to win seven consecutive races in four race meets. He was rated as one of Jamaica’s greatest professional cyclists during the Town Moor era.   The name Town Moor was later changed to the National Heroes Circle. He later became a coach for the Jamaican team to the Pan-American games as well as a successful bicycle manufacturer of the famous “Speed Iron” bicycles.

In 1964, he formed the Blissett Wheelers Club, but later changed the name to Blssett Cycling Club. The club was established to assist young men who were interested in becoming professional cyclists and could not afford to purchase a racing bicycle at the time. Today, the club has expanded on this vision, and also included women.
