Winter is finally over! Time to tune-up those bikes and hit the trails. This week Invest Aurora visited with an Aurora business that can help. All Spoked Up is a community bike shop located in downtown Aurora, and they know cycling. The staff is involved in all facets of the sport from advocacy to racing. As a community focused shop, they accommodate for all visitors; whether you’re looking to purchase your child’s first bike or training for a triathlon. In visiting the shop you’ll find a wide range of kids, cruisers, road, mountain, fixed gear, and BMX bicycles from trusted brands. Also, for those who already have a bike, All Spoked Up offers affordable tune ups and speedy repairs.
All Spoked Up recently expanded into a new space, not far from their previous site. They are now located just a few storefronts west on Downer PL, next door to Metropolitan Co-working. Now with more square footage, the store manager, Pete Cleary, says the new space will allow them to stock more bikes and add another bike repair stand. The additional stand will help staff repair and return bikes faster thus getting their clients back on the trails ASAP. The previous storefront will be utilized by AKA dance, who will expand from their current space next door.
Cleary also discussed his excitement about the increased activity in the downtown. In the past few years, he has seen more people walking around and more businesses popping up. Cleary is hopeful that this momentum will keep pushing downtown Aurora forward. Cleary also pointed out Aurora’s vast bike trail network as a major asset for the business and the community. In January 2017, Aurora was named a Bicycle Friendly Community by the League of American Bicyclist. Fortuitously, All Spoked Up is located right off the Fox River Trail which stretches 43 miles and connects with many other trails throughout the city.
All Spoked Up will be having a Grand Opening event sponsored by the Aurora Regional Chamber of Commerce on Friday, May 5th 3:30 PM. Stop by All Spoked Up’s location at 14 West Downer Pl Aurora IL, 60506 for all your cycling needs. Mention this article and receive a 10% discount on a tune up service.
