Bike Friday® is named after Robinson Crusoe's trusty companion. So instead of a 'Man Friday" we strive to give each person their own 'Bike Friday' in the same spirit. Bike Friday owners love the way their bikes fit, how they ride, and how they make travel fun and easy! Bike Friday's cause: to make the world a safer, healthier and more sustainable place through cycling.
Bike Friday® has a vision of making the planet more bike-friendly. Start with the fire engine red Family Tandem in 1995, an affordable, child-friendly tandem bike that is easy for travel and got adult and kid riders pedaling in unison on the open roads. The Family Tandem was the genesis for several disabled children service programs, such as the Tandem program sponsored by the L.A. Braille Institute, and the Adapted Physical Education Project in Wayland Public School, MA.
Whatever your riding style - road bike, touring, mountain bike, tandem - Bike Friday® can design and build a travel bicycle that is custom-fit just for you. And they guarantee the fit will be right. RAAM legend Lon Haldeman has ridden BikeFriday®, as well as the famous Tour de France commentator Phil Liggett. Not to mention, the Worlds' Most Traveled Man by Bicycle, who is Heinz Stucke, riding his Bike Friday®. They ride like full-size performance bikes - Bike Friday®!
