ARLINGTON, VA (BRAIN)—Revolution Cycles is going to launch a unique "City Hub" concept store located at 220 Twentieth Street in the heart of Crystal City. Revolution Cycles City Hub is scheduled to open in the spring of 2010, coinciding with the tenth anniversary of the National Bike Summit on Capitol Hill.
Revolution Cycles City Hub will have 100 Trek bicycles available for residents, businesses and guests to use for touring the area and riding for fitness on the local trails in addition to the new regional bike share program that Crystal City plans to launch for shorter point-to-point trips. With a focus on serving the needs of local commuters as well as providing transportation solutions for businesses and visitors, the Hub will feature a selection of cycling accessories and apparel as well as a full service technical center. By helping the Crystal City community take more trips by bike, Revolution Cycles aims to present the bicycle as a solution for going green and staying fit.
Revolution Cycles has served cyclists in the D.C. metro area for over a decade since opening its doors in Georgetown. The fifth location will also be owned and operated by president Mike Hamannwright and vice president Santiago ‘Pinkey’ Gonzalez. “This unique partnership provides us with the opportunity to blend our retail and bike share program experience to further our goal of promoting cycling and its many benefits to more of the community,” Hamannwright said. “Crystal City is an ideal location to launch our new 'City Hub' concept: a retail shop focused on bike sharing, rentals, accessories and repairs.”
