BikeFlights Announces 2023 Brand Ambassadors

February 8, 2023

Program supports 36 individual cyclists and two teams

PORTLAND, OR (February 8, 2023) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – BikeFlights, a bicycle shipping service and bike box supplier trusted by riders worldwide, is pleased to introduce its 2023 Brand Ambassadors and Sponsored Teams.

“All year long, our BikeFlights Brand Ambassadors inspire us with all that they do on and off a bike,” said Sue George, Vice President of BikeFlights. “For 2023, we’re welcoming 36 amazing individuals and two fantastic teams to represent BikeFlights in their communities and wherever they go ride and race. We can’t wait to see what they get up to this year.”

“What I love about BikeFlights is the stress-free process and assurance I get from knowing my bike or equipment will make it to my destination on time and safely,” said returning BikeFlights Brand Ambassador Kyle Trudeau.

New BikeFlights Brand Ambassador Maria Doering said, “I love the flexibility that BikeFlights gives me and that I am able to plan ahead when to ship my bike.”

Launched eight years ago in 2015, the BikeFlights Brand Ambassador program continues to make it easy for Ambassadors to ship their bikes, wheels and gear, whether they are traveling with their bikes or shipping bike-related gear they’ve just sold online. In exchange, Brand Ambassadors help spread the word about BikeFlights.

Long-time BikeFlights Brand Ambassador Ashton Lambie said, “Using BikeFlights is so easy. I can select a pickup to avoid having to drop off large boxes, and I can also send folks labels easily for them to ship to me.”

Returning BikeFlights Brand Ambassador Caleb Swartz said, “As a privateer I am in charge of a tremendous number of logistics. There are so many moving parts to my program, and I am constantly moving around equipment for races and training camps. BikeFlights makes it so easy and affordable to plan ahead. This reduces stress and it saves me innumerable headaches.”

“Our Ambassador program consists of riders of all ages and levels of experience from grassroots to pro,” said George. “We’re proud to support ambassadors who are gravel riders, mountain bikers, road riders, trackies, triathletes and cyclocrossers of different races, ethnic backgrounds, ages, genders and locations.”

BikeFlights Brand Ambassador Diana Hildebrand, who has taught both adults and youth how to ride a bicycle, said, “I love that BikeFlights offers safe traveling for bicycles, supports various organizations and offers ambassadors opportunities.”

“BikeFlights provides a wonderful tool for shipping bikes and gear, but the BikeFlights family is one that cares about each other and their customers,” said returning BikeFlights Ambassador Rose Grant, a mom and recently retired pro racer. “I have really loved being a part of this community.”

Expect to see BikeFlights Brand Ambassadors in action at national caliber events like The Mid South, the Sea Otter Classic, Unbound Gravel, the Leadville MTB Trail 100, Rebecca’s Private Idaho and Big Sugar as well as many more events in their local communities and beyond. You’ll also often see them out pedaling on their favorite local roads and trails.
