Bicicooperativa Urbana

Bicicooperativa Urbana

We are a group of young cyclists promoting a different lifestyle and offering a space to bike around the city and to create a social conscience about economy and people.Our goal is to encourage the use of bicycles in business and social activities in Mexico City. We established as a cooperative because it fosters economic solidarity, generates dignified jobs and social welfare.

Why on a bike?

Bicycles are great tools for generating jobs, improving mobility, as a zero-emission transportation and as a complement to a healthier and active life.

Bicicooperativa Urbana is an environment-friendly cooperative created in 2011 with our values nested in mutual aid, responsibility, equality and solidarity.

Our products and services are flexible as we seek to satisfy the needs of our customers in a one-on-one manner.
As a community-focused cooperative part of our earnings are directed to social projects that benefit our city.

External collaborators get their earnings based on the project or work done.

We are the first cooperative in México that aims to create the largest and highest amount of bicycle-related projects.
A percentage of our earnings are destined to a common fund for the development of new projects.
