The Team @ HC

At Hershey Cycles, the crew is our mantra. You can find good product at most bicycle shops, right? But the experience, knowledge, and overall great vibes this bunch brings to downtown Hershey, Pennsylvania and the surrounding cycling region is simply amazing!

Derek DiMedio - Founder 

 Derek started out as a bicycle messenger in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and worked as an apprentice under international mechanics at Bike Tech on Locust Street. He managed shops in Chicago, Illinois for the famous frame builder Ron Boi and founded the shop Bikesmith in Lake Bluff, Illinois. After 20 years in tech, he returned to the cycling industry to build another shop organically in Hershey, Pennsylvania. 

Tony Stagliano - Business Manager

Tony is from Pottsville, Pennsylvania and is just as comfortable balancing the books as he is behind the workbench.  He can be found most days cruising the streets of Hershey on a longboard.

Steph Kelshaw - Service Manager

Steph is from neighboring Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. The moment we met Steph through our favorite HC road cyclist Heather Gable, we knew instantly she would be a perfect fit at HC. When she is not keeping the team focused, Steph can be found riding on her road bike with Heather throughout our beautiful region.  We like to think everyone needs to meet Steph. 

Lily Parys - Cycle Technician

Lily's journey began with the meticulous refurbishment of a Trek 330 road bike, showcasing her unparalleled passion for bicycles and remarkable artistic talents. Her unique blend of creativity and craftsmanship adds a real gem to our team.

Heather Gable - Cycle Technician

Heather was one of the first road cyclist to visit the shop 3 years ago. We knew then her passion for road bikes would be a perfect fit for the shop and now we are super stoked she has decided to join the technical team at HC. 

Marco DiMedio - Apprentice

Marco is a downtown, Hershey local. During the summer you can find him on his Waverunner making big turns on the Susquehanna River or downtown at the shop helping out with inventory. Hersheypark is his mantra.
