William Alcorn started Bikeflights.com - a bicycle shipping service for all types of riders - while living in State College, Pennsylvania.
We celebrated our first major milestone of
100 bike shipments per month.
Bikeflights relocated to Portland, Oregon to open West Coast operations.
We attended our first Sea Otter Classic. We’ve been back every year since.
We exhibited at Interbike for the first time.
We launched our Bikeflights Brand Ambassador Program to help cyclists - ranging from up-and-coming young riders to established pros - more easily get their bikes to events.
We kicked off our Buck Up For Bikes Program, to promote more young people and women riding bikes. To date, the program has raised more than $81,000 for organizations like Trips for Kids, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA), Little Bellas, the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) and the Amy D. Foundation.
We released our first cardboard bike shipping box after a year of development.
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.
After providing shipping services for Interbike Reno, we held our first staff retreat with three days of mountain biking, road riding and storytelling around Lake Tahoe.
Bikeflights became the
Official Bicycle Shipping Service of the
Tour de France.
We joined the UPS certified carbon offset program for all customer shipments to reduce the environmental impact of shipping bikes, wheels and gear.
We supported and conquered the 100- and 200-mile Dirty Kanza events for the first time in 2019 and since then, we’ve continued to work with and ride Unbound Gravel and Leadville.
Bikeflights-QBP Top Shop Program launched to help bike shops become better shippers and expand their services.
We launched version 2.0 of our Bikeflights Bike Boxes. The completely redesigned cardboard boxes come in two sizes and make it easier to pack and ship bikes.
