COVID-19 INFORMATION

Executive Order 2020-10

UPDATED 06/09/2020:
Beginning May 1, per the most recent Executive Order issued by Governor Pritzker, we are asking all customers to wear face masks when entering the store. 

We have instituted the following procedures during this time and ask for your patience and cooperation as we work to keep everyone safe and on the road:

> We will limit the number of people allowed in the shop at any time to conform with current standards established by the State of Illinois - PLEASE RESPECT SOCIAL DISTANCING WHEN PASSING OTHERS;
> We are sanitizing all surfaces - counters, fixtures, door handles, etc., as well as bike handle bars and seats - every morning and evening as well as periodically during the day;
> THANKS TO NORTH SHORE DISTILLERY,  we have hand sanitizer available on the front and rear counters - PLEASE USE IT!;
> We will continue to provide free pick-up and delivery and are also happy to meet you curb-side or on the sidewalk.  If there is anything else we can do to make you more comfortable, please don't hesitate to let us know; and,
> FINALLY, this is a time of heightened anxiety for all of us, we must strive to treat one another with patience, respect and kindness and be understanding when any of us falters in the attempt.

We are on a mission!

Green Bay Cycles is committed to improving our neighborhood, the environment and the wider world by providing increased access to cycling for all, regardless of age or ability. We strive to build a more cycling-friendly community through exceptional service, the sharing of knowledge and a passionate belief in the positive power of time shared seeing the world, near or far, on two wheels.

Meet the Team

Larry Faulkner

Owner / Founder / Mechanic

Larry has always believed that the most important customer he has is the one right in front of him. That is the ethic he uses to set the tone at Green Bay Cycles every day.

Pam Faulkner

Owner / Founder / Sales

Pam's cycling adventures have taken her to Kenya, China, Italy and from one end of the UK to the other (JOGLE).  She is our road ride leader, and has also been known to bake a mean cookie.

Nate Perkins

Head Mechanic Extraordinaire

Nate has been turning wrenches for about 25 years.  His commitment to cycling extends well beyond the shop - he is an avid mountain and trail rider and leads our Tuesday Fat Bike rides.

Jake Dreschler

Bike Prep / Stock Management

Jake preps all bikes for their tune ups, including washing them until they gleam. He also makes sure our floor is fully stocked with bikes and accessories. He rides to work from Evanston nearly every day - rain or shine.

Nate ("Roscoe") Gonzalez

Bike Builder

Roscoe is our budding mechanic. A New Trier student, he works with us on Saturdays and during the summer.

Gabby Rodriguez

Sales / Merchandising

Gabby is a former college tri-athlete (U Miami) and avid cyclist.  She loves to ride and can dress a gorgeous mannequin in no time flat.

Pedal

VP Community Relations

Just like her name, Pedal is always under our feet.  She loves people of all shapes and sizes, but - sadly - is not a fan of other dogs.  She's a bossy Frenchie. 

Chief

VP Community Relations

Chief is a big lover.  He specializes in meeting and greeting, but napping is his true favorite. He's very good about letting Pedal have her way.
