Fix a Flat Tire at Uptown Bikes

With summer in full swing, it will come as no surprise that everyone and their friends are biking here in Chicago. Hitting the Bloomingdale Trail or commuting, it’s a constant recurrence through the city. If you run into an issue with your bicycle, you’ll miss out on all the fun! 

Thankfully, Uptown Bikes has got your back with an assortment of services. This women-owned and -managed independent bike shop has been serving Chicago for more than 20 years—they even won “Best Bicycle Shop” in Reader’s 2019 Best of Chicago poll. They’ll work on “all makes and models of non-motorized bicycles,” which means your bike is likely a match. Schedule a service appointment at your convenience and let them work their magic: your bike will be ready to hit the road again in no time. 

More of a do-it-yourselfer? Uptown Bikes has a variety of essential accessories on-hand and available for pickup (by appointment), too. Order a new bike lock, pump, basket, tire, pedal, or even a new helmet and get to work—consider it a special bonding experience with your bike, not just a chance to get your hands dirty.
