Participants BikeFlip The upcycling of children’s bicycles is necessary, because on average children only use a bicycle for a year: then they have grown too big and the bicycle is too small. Then the bicycle is often left to rust away. In the Netherlands alone, millions of bicycles are left in sheds and municipal depots. A shame, we think. That is why we came up with a simple but innovative idea: a subscription to a circular children’s bicycle with an exchange and repair service at home. A lease bicycle for children, but sustainable. That’s BikeFlip. Here’s how it works: you choose a children’s bike on our site, we bring it to your doorstep. If it breaks down, we come and repair it. Is your child too big for the bike? Then you can exchange the bike for a larger one. The old bike will then go to another child. We make a party of every exchange moment (and thus a new bike). This way, forgotten children’s bicycles from municipal bike depots get a new life, children are made happy with a nice bike, parents are relieved and we contribute to a better world by setting up a sustainable bicycle economy. That’s four birds with one stone!
