What Is BikeFrog?
BikeFrog was created with one goal in mind: inspiring happiness in the lives of people around the world utilizing the power of the bicycle.
BikeFrog began as a simple trail name for an ambitious young man who wanted to see and meet the people of the world. To his elation others wanted to join in the movement and a passionate team formed around him to send him and other team riders on a journey across their country (and for BikeFrog…eventually the world), meeting with like-minded individuals along the way to promote social reform, charitable altruism, and environmental sustainability. In doing so, we raise awareness of the bicycle as a useful and inexpensive tool for community development while creating a network of organizations interested in utilizing it.
Whether one lives in a developing or industrialized, city or nation, available transportation shapes their lifestyle. The value of the bicycle lies in its ability to improve speed and distance in almost any service or industry at a minuscule cost. Whether it be healthcare, commerce, or even just gathering clean water from the nearest source, the humble bicycle provides a simple solution to an ever increasing web of problems around the world.
