The Birth of Bikemobile

Life Continues to be an intesting Journey

About Bikemobile

Forty-two years ago when I was nineteen years old, I was hoping to open a small bike repair shop in my mom's garage in Bell's Corners. Unfortunately the local bylaws were even more against that idea at the time than they are now, so I decided that if my customers can't come to me, I will go to them. And I have been doing that ever since.

I am now trying hard to change our city. We have one major flaw. The Ottawa Greenbelt is the worst greenbelt in the entire world. I intend to change that. Go to to discover my exciting solution to this city planning disaster.

Peter Westaway



I drove a taxi in Nepean for many years while trying to build this bike business in the spring. I am finally very busy every spring and am feeling better than ever and ready to achieve all of my big dreams. Check out my video below. I intend to change the world.




Ken Upiah



Originally from the beautiful island nation of Mauritius, Ken has a good full time job so doesn't join me often, but when he does he is a very confident mechanic. He says he is the best there ever was. I don't quite agree but he is always fun to have on the job.




Maria Sullivan



Maria is the youngest and least experienced assistant I have ever worked with. What she lacks in experience she makes up for in enthusiasm. She attends a private high school in the United States and so isn't able to work often, but I look forward to helping her improve her bike fixing skills.
