Is your company located in one of the Seattle metro area cities? The Bicycle Fixer is a mobile bike repair shop offering a Corporate Partnership program providing same day repairs to employee's bicycles while at their work station. For those companies that offer a bicycle commute to work program to their employee's, on-site mobile bike repair service can save time for your work force, help eliminate employee stress and offer an answer to potential problems that arise while they commute to and from work. The Bicycle Fixer mobile bike repair is available to share solutions with those riders just starting out that want to commute to work on a bicycle. This is especially useful as many employers offer commuting incentives to their employee's for traffic reduction, parking and a more healthy workforce. Some companies create a fun team experience by having employee's team up during Bike to Work month or Bike to Work day in May and see who logs the most commute to work miles.
Seattle was the first city in the United States to have a police bicycle patrol division. Now, a few decades later, this method of serving the public has become a standard method of patrolling the streets and working crowd control nationwide. Police departments and security groups bike fleets use the more durable mountain bike with heavy duty disc brakes, shocks and tough tires. As rugged as police bikes are, police bikes encounter plenty of urban obstacles from curbs to potholes to weather exposure. Police bikes generally need more service attention than the average bicycle for the aforementioned reasons. If your police bike division would like the convenience of on-site mobile bike repair, call or email The Bicycle Fixer.
How it works. Your company and The Bicycle Fixer set up a day to arrive at your location ( generally Thursdays ). You inform employee's in advance through internal email or posted flyers I can provide giving those who need bicycle service ample time to arrange to bring their bike to work. On the day specified I can arrive as early as 7:30 a.m. to set up at a location you deem best. Employee's drop off their bike and can pick it up throughout the day and be on their way, safe and worry free.
In addition to carrying the most common repair and service parts, The Bicycle Fixer carries some of the more popular accessories requested: lights, racks, fenders, seat bags, tools and pumps. Special items not stocked in the van can be ordered ahead of time to accommodate those needs. In that case the employee can contact me directly and I'd have the product available upon my arrival. Upon completion of my work day, I leave the work area clean and free of any sign I was there.
I've worked 35+ years in the bicycle industry as a mechanic, service manager, and professional race mechanic. My knowledge, flexibility, experience and can do attitude set The Bicycle Fixer apart from many other groups.

Does your company participate in Bike to Work Month in May? Many corporations and other groups offer employee incentives during Bike to Work month for those that commute to work on their bicycle.

The HR department of most companies will know if your group is active in Bike to Work Month bicycle commute to work programs.
