Bicyclists no longer have to visit The Bike Lane, a Springfield-based company with locations in Springfield and Reston, for repairs. The company has partnered with San Fransisco-based Beeline Bikes, to bring bike repairs to the road.
The service, which will operate for the first time on the East Coast, will be available in Reston, Ashburn, Tysons Corner and Herndon later this month.
Both natives of Northern Virginia, Todd and Anne Mader launched The Bike Lane 17 years ago in Springfield. The couple opened another location in Reston (11943 Democracy Drive) seven years later.
“We have been serving cyclists in this area for almost two decades and know that they lead busy, active lives and are very tech-savvy. With Beeline‘s unique ‘We Come to You’ service, we will now be able to meet their needs in their homes or at work, in addition to our brick-and-mortar business,” said Todd Mader.
Anne Mader said the partnership with the franchise leverage the largest mobile bike service’s customer service and local support from their bike company.
“Beeline Bikes has the innovative technology and manufacturer partnerships needed to meet our customers’ needs wherever and however they shop and wherever they ride, and at The Bike Lane, we can also provide expanded services such as advanced fittings, group rides, classes, clinics and more,” she said.
The service will operate under the name Beeline Bikes Northern Virginia Powered by The Bike Lane. Any new bike purchased through the websites of Diamondback Bikes and Raleigh Bikes USA will also be delivered for no additional cost.
