Bikes Make Life Better is the first business-to-business firm dedicated entirely to helping organizations use bicycles to achieve core business objectives.

Our vision is to integrate bikes into corporate culture to impact people, the planet and profitability.

We do this through a combination of consulting, discounted product sales and ongoing operational support.

Bike Program Consulting

Most companies come to us with a need or idea, and no clear way to move forward. We ask questions, gather information, listen carefully, apply best practice knowledge and then make clear, implementable recommendations, including budgets and timelines. Our consulting work tends to focus on the following, but if you don’t see it here, just ask us or visit our FAQ.

  • Company bikeshare
  • Liability and risk mitigation
  • Loaner and/or intern bikes
  • E-bikes
  • Bike commuter support
  • End-of-Trip (EOT) facilities
  • Safe roads and infrastructure
  • On-site employee bike repair

Bike Fleets and Infrastructure

It’s one thing to have a plan and quite another to implement it. Most of our clients don’t have the time to find suppliers, negotiate discounts and manage orders with multiple vendors. That’s where we can really help. We’ve teamed up with the best suppliers in the industry – from around the world – to deliver products at discounted rates. They include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Bikes of all kinds
  • Accessories of all kinds
  • GPS and GPS locking systems
  • Bike parking racks and shelters
  • Bike repair stations
  • e-bikes and charging stations

On-Site Operations

Many companies want on-site support – especially for bikeshare programs – but don’t want to add to their headcount. Outsourcing this function makes a lot of sense. We have employees, hired specifically for individual companies, who work on-site, managing and supporting bike programs. Ongoing operational support often includes:

  • Bikeshare management, maintenance and repair
  • Loaner and intern bike management and repair
  • On-site employee bike repair
  • Rides, classes, events
  • Routing, maps, resources for bike commuters
  • Data collection and reporting

If you don’t see what you need here, just ask us or visit our FAQ. If it relates to bikes in an organizational setting, we do it.
