Our philosophy is as plain as our name: Bikes Make Life Better. Bikes manage to transform us, both physically and emotionally; to be a source of freedom and a force for positive change. Such a simple contraption, responsible for so much good in a complex world!
Founded in 2010, Bikes Make Life Better promotes biking as healthy, sustainable transportation. Grounded in the belief that bikes truly do improve our lives, we facilitate bike commuting by planning and implementing bike programs for large, influential organizations that share in our conviction.
With a sizeable staff of innovative and talented bike specialists, we cover everything there is to know about bikes, with a particular focus on:
Designing and outfitting end-of-trip bike facilities, including bike parking, showers/lockers, bike shops, DIY bike repair stations, and related amenities
Planning and implementing employee engagement, education, and
Researching and planning loaner bike programs and private bikeshare systems
Our highly-specialized expertise runs deep. We host an annual Bike Forum, a quarterly Online Bike Forum, and semi-monthly Bike Forum Conversations, enabling peer-to-peer discussion on the advantages of bikes as daily transportation.
Speakers have included Clif Bar, Facebook, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Genentech, Google, Intuit, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Nike, Sprint, Target, Kimberly Clark, Mozilla, Stanford, Wells Fargo, and many others.
We are lucky to collaborate with the world’s most forward-leaning organizations, including global corporations, real estate developers, and universities.
No matter how big our clients are or how quickly we continue to grow, people come first. The health and wellbeing of our employees, clients, vendors, and partners is the foundation of our success. We strive to remain open, honest, collaborative, and flexible. We embrace ambiguity, solve for “yes,” and push ourselves to exceed all expectations — working hard, but remembering to laugh at ourselves and have fun along the way.
