Tom Menard opened Bayside bicycles in Brewster back in 1979. The Cape Cod Rail Trail was in the planning stages, so he took the chance that he would be successful enough to raise his young family here on Cape Cod. In 1980 he moved his shop to Orleans and renamed it Nauset Cycle, which is now occupied by the Dunkin Donuts. Orleans Cycle opened on Main Street (now Cape Cup), and moved down Main Street next to the planned Rail Trail Extension in 1991. Tom has spent a lot of years working on all kinds of bikes and is still a hands-on shop owner. He has a love of many sports, and depending on the season, can be found fishing, mountain biking, or surfing. For the last 25 winters Tom has been a ski instructor in Vail, Colorado, where he rides his bike to the mountain every single day.
Throughout all of those years Tom has sold many bike brands and has had many knowledgeable employees. For the past 20 years he has been proud to carry both the Trek and Specialized Brands. Trek and Specialized brands are the number one and two national brands in terms of sales, respectively.
Here at Orleans Cycle we are very proud of our staff, so why don't we introduce them...
Doug has been getting his hands dirty in the bike business for more years than he can even remember. Doug made many friends and developed lots of devoted customers at Cove Cycle in Orleans and Hyannis. Five years ago, when the owner of Cove Cycle retired, we hired Doug to join our happy team here at Orleans Cycle. Over the years he has become a real leader among the mountain bike enthusiasts on the Cape. He's a member of the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) and the New England Mountain Biking Association (NEMBA). He has a wealth of information about mountain bike trails all over Cape Cod and is always ready to share. Doug has a blast every year riding in the Last Gasp and volunteering with the organization. He loves his Jeep and is an active member of the Cape Cod Jeep Club. He sings a lot and plays the guitar...He's a cool guy and we're glad he's around.
Devin started hanging around Orleans Cycle after school when he was twelve years old. Gone are the days of sweeping the floors and emptying the trash; Devin has since become a key player in the shop. As an experienced mechanic and knowledgeable sales representative, Devin has an eye for detail and a commitment to customer satisfaction. Some might even call him a perfectionist… When he’s not at Orleans Cycle, you can find Devin in the surf at Nauset Beach, riding his Stumpjumper on one of the Cape’s many mountain biking trails, or tinkering with his growing collection of vintage bicycles.
