About us

Early days

I had a chance encounter at a LinkedIn Local event back in early 2020. That's where I met Felix, who was starting up a bike delivery service in Hamilton through the nonprofit organisation GoEco. I thought it was an epic idea and volunteered to build a little web-app for managing orders. Over the next 6 months, we had some fun evolving that little web app into a cool little order management system.

An opportunity appeared

Around October 2020, I got an email from Adrian, a Melbourne based designer. Adrian was working on a new website for Momentum Messenger, a well-established bike messenger service in Melbourne. Turns out Lachie, one of the founders of Momentum Messenger had come across the little ordering app Felix and I developed. Lachie had asked Adrian to get in touch to see if I could help offer their clients a similar experience.

Delivery by Bike was born

We had a chat and decided to work together to develop a complete ordering platform for bike messenger companies. Over the next several months we iterated on a prototype app until Delivery by Bike was born! In early 2021 we started testing and refining the app to get it ready for public use.

Where we're going

This is in no way an attempt to build a "platform" that tries to get between bike couriers and their customers. I want members of the bike messenger community to be actively involved and see Delivery by Bike as a tool built for them to help their businesses thrive. My goal is to focus 100% on helping bike messenger services run their bookings smoothly so that they crush it in the stuff that matters most.
