Amelia Kegel, co-owner of Wheel & Sprocket and daughter of founder Chris Kegel–a legend in the biking industry– will discuss How Bikes Build Milwaukee and Wisconsin Communities. Founded in 1973 in Hales Corners, Wisconsin, Wheel & Sprocket began as a small, local bike shop with big dreams. After 44 years of growing Wheel & Sprocket has become one of the most successful bike shops in the country. Chris Kegel passed away, but left behind quite a legacy. Today, the Wheel & Sprocket brand has extended its reach to four stores in the Metro-Milwaukee area, two in the Fox Valley, and two in the Chicago, IL. suburbs of Evanston and Oak Park.
