The cycle center is located in downtown Chicago’s Millennium Park and “is another step toward Mayor Daley’s goal to make Chicago the most bicycle-friendly city in the country.”

The center provides 300 secure, heated, indoor bike parking spaces, showers and lockers, bike rentals, and a repair shop.  The center is also partially powered by the photovoltaic system on the roof including 80 75-watt modules and 40 37-watt modules.  The system is rated at 7.48 kW, will generate 8,815 kilowatt-hours per year, and meet 6.5% of the center’s electrical requirements.
