Chesapeake Cycle moves for better drive-by visibility

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Chesapeake Cycles has moved one mile to a new site with better visibility.

"We went from 7,000 to 16,000 square feet," Mike Eichorn, one of three dealers principal, told Annapolis Patch. "We went from drive-by traffic from literally about two cars a day to 20,000, if I had to guess."

That’s partly because the new site in Parole is near Westfield Annapolis mall. The company moved in November and will celebrate its 10th anniversary in May.

"We remained a top ten dealer and the mid-Atlantic's number one Victory dealer for 10 years in a spot that was limited in size and completely hidden in visibility," he said. The store also sells Triumph and Vespa.

Partners Eichorn and Frank Miller recently took on a third partner, former service manager Mike Balazs.

Chesapeake Cycles will host an open house April 20 featuring food, entertainment, demo rides, clinics, prizes and discounts.
