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 total of 8 people located in United States, Canada, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Denmark.
Abhijit Barua (Avi)
Avi lives in Dhaka, Bangladesh and loves biking around in the city. Starting with a road bike, he now ride a hardtail mountain bike. It’s been a great pleasure for him to tour the beauty of the nature on his bike.
Beside working as a freelancer, he makes his adventures with some local bicycle communities/groups twice a week.
My fascination with bikes began when I moved to Japan 10 years ago, where the most convenient form of transport are the road bikes. Since then I have experimented with different kinds of bikes.
I have done cross-country rides and I have toured my neighborhoods several times, riding for hours at times.
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.
Mads lives in Copenhagen, the world’s #1 bike city.
He is mostly into urban cycling, so the bikes he have at the moment are a standard city bike and a cargo bike (a Christiania bike that has been painted so it looks like a shark). Before Mads started working on Icebike.org, he made a Danish bicycle site called Cykelvalg.dk.
Over the years, I have grown accustomed to the feeling of smooth tarmac under my wheels. There isn’t much that can beat humming down a lonely road with nothing but the wind on my skin. Whether it is dodging in and out of busy city traffic, or touring across countries on my trusty bike, I am and always will be a road cyclist.
After years of racing and teaching cycling in Oregon and Colorado, Paul is adjusting his life-work balance by enjoying the responsibilities of being a stay at home dad, while cycling everywhere the North VA and DC area allows.
Rhodes is a writer, social justice advocate, and passionate cyclist. He primarily spends his time in the saddle commuting or riding multi-day, self-supported tours, and volunteers time wrenching at his local bike coop. In 2016 he plans to ride as a team captain for the AIDS Lifecycle Ride, and welcomes interested readers to make a donation today to help end HIV.
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.

Icebike.org was originally created by John Andersen, but he kindly allowed Mads to continue the site earlier this year.
We are sometimes asked if we would consider posting articles by someone else here on Icebike.org. Normally we would always say no, but we might publish your work if you can write a truly outstanding guest post.
