Thank you to all of our customers, partners and ambassadors who have helped us get to this point. We couldn’t have done it without you.
WILLIAM ALCORN - PRESIDENT
William Alcorn started BikeFlights.com - a bicycle shipping service for cyclists - while living in State College, Pennsylvania.
BikeFlights.com relocated to Portland, Oregon to open west coast operations.
We attended our first Sea Otter Classic. We’ve been back every year since. It’s a great place to catch up with our Ambassadors and watch them compete in various disciplines.
We exhibited at Interbike for the first time. Each year thereafter, we regularly competed in the Industry races at CrossVegas and RenoCross...and we've taken home some trophies too!
Embodying the spirit of adventure, Epic Rides was a natural fit for our core mission and our first event series partnership!
To support cyclists ranging from up-and-coming young riders to established pros as they travel with their bikes, we launched our BikeFlights.com Brand Ambassador Program.
When we kicked off our Buck Up For Bikes Program, our mission was to promote youth cycling participation. To date, the program has raised more than $56,000 for organizations like Trips for Kids, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA), the Amy D. Foundation and Little Bellas.
To support aspiring racers of all ages and disciplines across the country, we began our partnership with USA Cycling.
Building upon the success of our cardboard box, we launched our second bike shipping box - this one even stronger (and prettier), made of corrugated plastic.
BikeFlights.com was born out of a desire to adventure. We held our first staff retreat near Lake Tahoe to adventure together. Three days of mountain biking, road riding, storytelling and creating memories with the whole team.
BikeFlights.com became the
Official Bicycle Shipping Service of the
Tour de France.
We supported and conquered the 100- and 200-mile Dirty Kanza events for the first time in 2019... and we still have the dirt in our bottom brackets to prove it!
