The CycleHop team encompasses 20 years of experience in the cycling industry, specifically in bike sharing, bicycle commuting, and cycle tourism. Our mission is to inspire people to ride bicycles for the benefit of one’s health, spirit, and planet. We realize this by partnering with communities and businesses to create spaces and programs that encourage people to ride.
We like to say that we invented bike share, in 1997 we submitted and then received the first U.S. patent for the “Automated Bicycle Rental Station.” Our vision was to make bicycles available in cities, universities, and hotels, for commuting and recreation, across the country and around world. We have worked hard ever since to realize this vision.
Today, CycleHop focuses on:
- Planning, funding, and operating bike share programs for cities and businesses.
- Sourcing bike share equipment and supporting clients.
- Selling media and sponsorship to support bike share programs.
- Consulting cities and companies
