As founder of Bikmo, Dave’s vision for his business has always been clear. Through the medium of technology, Dave seeks to help cyclists spend more time doing what they love most, and that’s riding.
He’s also built a team of like-minded individuals who share his vision, love for coffee and enjoyment in riding bikes.

Carvetti Ethiopian single-origin black pour over to get started in the morning.
What motivates you about riding?

When not riding, where can we find you?
At the skate park with Albie, my 3-year-old who loves it as much as his dad.

Building an awesome team and writing questionnaires about bikes and coffee.
