About Us

IceBike.org is a labor of love. A love of bikes and all kinds of cycling.

We have 200,000+ readers every month and try to cover all kinds of cycling. Depending on where you end up on the site, you can read about long-distance bike touring, the history of cycling, and of course browse our in-depth bike reviews and price comparison.

Originally the site was only about ice biking and cycling in the winter (that’s why it’s called Icebike.org…). If you want to know everything there is to know about ice biking, you should check out this intro and this collection of blog posts.

Meet the riders

We are a team of 8 peoples located in the United States, Canada, Europe, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.

Biking has been my main mode of transportation for about 9 years now. I love all kinds of biking especially touring. I love helping people find the bike that is right for them and I manage a bike rental shop in Portland, Oregon, USA.

Luke Ameen

Luke Ameen

Having got off the mountain trails a few years ago, I spend most of my leisure time cycling everywhere I can possibly go. The days of competition are gone, yet I still manage to see everything there is to see in my area. Bicycles are in my blood, and it will be for the decades (hopefully) to come.

Abhijit Barua

Abhijit Barua (Avi)

Avi lives in Dhaka, Bangladesh and loves biking around in the city. Starting with a road bike, he now rides a hardtail mountain bike. It’s been a great pleasure for him to tour the beauty of nature on his bike.

Besides working as a freelancer, he makes his adventures with some local bicycle communities/groups twice a week.
