At Main Line Cycles, bikes aren’t just a way for us to make a living – they’re a way of life. We all have different focuses and riding styles, but what unites us is a passion for two wheels and getting there under our own power. Unmatched service is at the core of our ethos: our aim is to help you achieve and surpass your goals in cycling, whether it’s a first-place finish, your first all-day charity ride, or just keeping your favorite old ride rolling.
Dan has been an avid cyclist forever. As a teenager, he first toured New Hampshire’s White Mountains, followed by an East Coast ride from Virginia to Connecticut. His touring highlight was a 1979 ride across the United States. More recently, Dan has cycled Belgium’s Flanders region, the countryside of Ireland and Quebec. “There’s no better way to experience a country and its people – be it our own USA or a foreign land – than on a bike”, Dan says.
Dan can be seen regularly riding the Schuylkill River Trail, the backroads of Chester and Montgomery counties, as well local charity rides.

In 2009 Brandon picked up a road bike for the first time and fell in love with the ease and speed of smooth tarmac and a steady tailwind. After learning some basic wrenching at Neighborhood Bike Works, Brandon came to Main Line Cycles looking to further his skills as a mechanic, but found a love for helping introduce people to cycling in the process. Brandon has competed in various Sprint Distance Triathlons, and has a deep appreciation for long charity rides. The ‘little, big guy’ has an opinion on almost everything bike related, and has an unhealthy obsession bikes with skinny tires. After 6 years of working in local shops, and non profits, Brandon’s return to Main Line Cycles comes with an excitement to help with any request, big or small!
