The Team

The faces behind Bike Citizens

Founded by two bicycle couriers Daniel Kofler and Andreas Stückl, the Bike Citizens team is now made up of 35 people. We work from either Graz or Berlin to achieve the company’s shared mission: to communicate the joy of cycling and thereby improve the quality of life in urban areas.

Riding my bike is like riding a horse, except it's smaller, easier, it doesn't need hay, its more fun and everybody can do it, even if she/he isn't rich. I love horses.
