Bike for Good and Vélogik create – Motion Forward!

Bike For Good and Vélogik join forces to create Motion Forward – a joint venture specialized in BtoB bike maintenance launching onto the UK market. 

Two companies committed to shared values.

Bike For Good started in 2010, unfunded in a small stall in Glasgow’s famous Barras market. We now have two thriving community hubs and shops in Glasgow, and a team of more than fifty individuals who are changing thousands of lives through cycling. We’re experts in social and environmental impact, and provide a variety of inclusive cycling activities and services for the Glasgow community. 

Over the last seven years, we developed our business-to-business services to grow our charitable activities. We’ve provided a professional bicycle fleet servicing and Dr Bike to universities/ colleges, community organisations and businesses, and we’ve managed and maintained Glasgow’s bike share scheme Nextbike

Founded in 2008, Vélogik is a pioneer in bike solutions for businesses and councils (sale, rental, management, consulting, training), quickly cementing its place as a French leader in the management and operation of bike services. 

Since early 2018, the company has refocused its efforts on cutting-edge bike maintenance (smart technology, technical expertise, management, digital software), reinforcing its know-how in BtoB bike fleet maintenance. 

Both companies have a common vision for cycling mobility,  especially in maintenance. We act daily for a  healthy and inclusive environment where everyone in the community benefits from more people cycling. 

The United Kingdom is a thriving hotspot for cycling, with the country seeing a steep rise in uptake, and the government showing a growing awareness of cycling as a bonafide mode of transport. Like everywhere else, cycling needs maintenance and repair professionals. Bicycles with electrical assistance and cargo bikes,  among others, require specific expertise. 

As a result, we’ve both joined forces to create – Motion Forward!

Motion Forward wants to develop its activities in the UK and promote expert maintenance. We are committed to the environment and meeting the needs of all riders. 

Maintenance is key for an operational fleet. The mission of Motion Forward is to maintain and repair for sustainability, rider comfort and safety. We are committed to providing professional fleets with a quality service, for positive environmental and social impact.
