Revolution Cycles was established in 1997 by Mike Hamannwright and Santiago “Pinkey” Gonzalez. With decades of combined experience in the bicycle retail industry, Mike and Pinkey set out to create a unique bike shop that focused on customer service and satisfaction, serving all cyclists from casual beginners to experienced enthusiasts.
In 1998, Revolution Cycles in Georgetown opened its doors and soon became the area’s destination bicycle shop for diplomats, couriers, students, families and more. After several years of success in Georgetown, Mike and Pinkey opened a second location in Arlington, Virginia. With 11,000 square feet of space in the progressive, vibrant Clarendon neighborhood, Revolution Cycles Clarendon has been the company’s flagship store since 2002. This location has management offices, meeting space and a training area in addition to the two floors of retail space. In 2004, stores in Rockville, Maryland and Stafford, Virginia were added to the Revolution Cycles family. Both of these locations adhere to the same principles of providing outstanding customer service to each and every customer, and the open and inviting floor plans in Rockville and Stafford showcase Revolution Cycles’ mission to offer an enjoyable and comfortable place to shop.
From 2010 to 2012, the Revolution Cycles City Hub represented a totally new and innovative retail bicycle concept. One of the City Hub's primary purposes was to promote an active lifestyle of recreational cycling through a fixed-point bike share program for residents and businesses in Crystal City, Virginia. We had a blast in Crystal City and thank the community for their support.
Mike and Pinkey’s success is a result of their dedication to their original mission: to provide the best possible customer service experience in the bicycle retail industry and to build a team of individuals who embody the same values and goals.
Thank you for your support and for giving us the opportunity to earn your business.
