Proteus is Moving!

Our New Location: 9827 Rhode Island Ave in the Hollywood Shopping Center

Proteus Bicycles is moving to 9827 Rhode Island Ave, in the Hollywood shopping center in North College Park. Proteus will open at the new location on Saturday December 15 at 10am. The 9217 Baltimore Ave location will close on December 13 & 14 for the move and will be permanently closed as of December 15.

The new space is the former location Mom’s organic market. Last July, Mom’s moved to the much larger ex-REI location.

While it is bittersweet leaving this iconic space, we’re excited to move to a larger space where we will have room for more community events and classes. 
This Place is Huge! With the extra room, we’re bringing two new bike brands, Salsa and Specialized, and we’ll have ample indoor bike parking for customers. Eventually we’d like to bring in a coffee stand in the front. The coffee service will be a 2019 project for us once the bike shop is up and running.

More parking! The large parking lot will make it easy for parking and gives us space for outdoor cycling clinics and special events. 

We’re just down the hill from our old location. Easy to reach by all modes of transportation!

Voted the DC area’s best bike shop in 2016 and 2017 by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, and The Hyattsville Wire’s Best of Route 1, Proteus has served the DC area with top bike brands, bicycles accessories, and top notch professional repair service continuously since 1972.
