Pedal to the People Tune’s Up Willis Tower

What does it mean to reach the top? How about looking down from the Sky Deck at Willis Tower? It sure felt like being on top of the world when we did it!!

The Willis Tower is now offering bike valet as a service to its tenants. Complimentary to this service they have invited us, Pedal to the People, to come do bike tune-ups in April.

We are very excited for this opportunity.

Here’s the article about it written by the Sun Times!!

Where to Repair Standards for Mobile Service

As a mobile bicycle repair shop, Pedal to the People encounters a wide variety of work space opportunity. 

The idea of having a shop on a trailer that allows our mechanics to do their work anywhere is certainly innovative.In having a mobile bicycle shop, the question of where to actually perform the repair plays a role each time we do a service.

It also actively promotes the freedom & accessibility made possible by the bicycle! Thanks to this we are able to repair bikes anywhere!! 

After 3 years of doing mobile repair in Chicago Adam Clark, has come up with quality guidelines on WHERE TO PERFORM BICYCLE REPAIR:

  • Where people are able to see you work

    Pedal to the People

    Mobile bicycle repair reaches the sidewalks of Ukrainian Village.

  • Never in an alley. That’s where garbage goes. It stinks! Our workers are worthy of respect.
  • Not in a parking garage. It is unhealthy.
  • Sidewalks are good so long as it’s allowed.
  • Anywhere where bikes are normally kept.
  • Events, Farmer’s Markets & Block parties
  • Front yards & kitchens are okay!

When repairing bicycles in the skyscrapers & condo buildings downtown it is important to keep to these standards.

Some buildings may even have a DEDICATED BIKE ROOM. Which is of course a good place to get to work.

Pedal to the People appreciates invitations!! We’ve been to multiple university campuses, major musical events, local & family gatherings, we even pull right into your office (if you let us).

Being mobile is fun. Let us help you ride safely too!!
