If bicyclists are an indicator species of a healthy city, then Milwaukee is more fit and vibrant than ever. There seem to be more and more bicyclists on Milwaukee's streets every day. And Milwaukee is also home to a burgeoning bicycle industry with nearby Hayes Bicycle Group bringing Wheelsmith, Sun-Ringle and Manitou to Milwaukee. With all the new development going in downtown and in our traditional neighborhoods like Bay View, Riverwest or the Washington Heights, it is no wonder we are seeing so many people choosing to leave their car at home and experience Milwaukee by Bike.

EUA keeps the bikes so employees who cannot bike to work can still run errands during lunch or get to nearby work meetings on two wheels. The bicycles are made by the Milwaukee Bicycle Company.
