Our Team

Amy Harcourt and Kurt Wallace Martin, the principals of Bikes Make Life Better, are business and bicycle enthusiasts to the core. They founded the company out of a shared conviction that bikes do in fact make life – and work life – better.

They’ve built a staff of 50 skilled and innovative bike specialists who know everything there is to know about bikes – and how they help achieve core business objectives.

They ride countless miles and drink endless cups of coffee. They sleep, but not usually on the job.
