a little about..


As our mission statement says, we advocate helping people save money, stay healthy, and live on a more sustainable planet through the use of human powered tools. Not only are bicycles the most efficient human-powered transportation, once they are manufactured, they have no carbon emissions, they require very little in the way of oil based lubrication, tubes, tires, and parts. As compared to motor driven transportation, and with the proper maintenance, they can last for decades. 

Human Power Planet Earth is more than a bicycle repair shop. What we refer to as Human Power is our philosophy of living. A way of life. We think this world we live on would be better if we did not over consume, if we create as little waste as possible, if we stay healthy by being active, if we make the lives of all people on this planet… All of humanity… Better through education, through stewardship of our natural resources, and through finding the common ground that can unite the 99% of the population that could be the most powerful force for the well being of this planet.
