All Riders Welcome.
We started Federal Cycles in 2016. Our commitment to you is clear: unmatched communication, thorough and honest service work, and skilled craftsmanship.
Our business story began in 2010 in a garage in Ocean City. Founders John and Navid were friends and college students, looking for better ways to get around their towns and campuses. This is where the spark and passion for the two-wheeled industry began. They started their path in the motorcycle industry the same way many of you did: by starting small and growing into bigger machines. John and Navid started by repairing and selling motor scooters in Ocean City, cutting their teeth by fixing, assembling, and selling bikes in a tiny 10'x10' warehouse on 1st street.
They hustled all summer and saw potential for the scooter market in College Park, MD. In August of 2010, College Scooters was officially born. John and Navid bootstrapped the Federal Cycles' sister company from a dream to a reality. Almost 7 years later, College Scooters continues to redefine what it means to commute on two-wheels in the DC and Maryland region. Along with founding College Scooters, they guys launched Shore Cycles in 2015 in Salisbury, Maryland, which is known as "The Eastern Shore's Most Diverse Cycle Shop" servicing motorcycles, ATVs, dirt bikes, and scooters.
Year after year, John and Navid noticed they had more and more motorcycle riders coming in to their shop, seeking the transparent, upfront, and quality repair experience with their bike that College Scooters became known for. With their skills refined, core values and culture in place, team assembled, and 1000's of motorcycle miles and wrench-hours completed, they decided to launch Federal Cycles in May 2016.
Federal Cycles' mission from day one: Provide a refreshing contrast to the standards that have developed in the motorcycle industry. We embrace an environment where all riders are welcome, whether you're kicking around on an RD350, Gixxer, or Fat Boy.
Today, Federal Cycles and College Scooters serve the entire Washington DC and Maryland area in a new, beautiful, unified location in College Park, Maryland. We're just 5 miles from the DC line, and 30 minutes from Baltimore and Annapolis. We can't wait to see you at our shop!
