The Story Behind Bicycle Universe
Bicycle Universe (.info and .com) is a bicycling-focused website with the core message being ‘Get a bike, lose the car and help the environment’.
This website was originally created all the way back in 2004 by Michael Bluejay. Michael has written some great articles over the years that have been mentioned in the New York Times, Huffington Post, The Times of London and other large well-respected websites. (The ‘Going car free can make you a millionaire’ article with a calculator is one of the most popular and linked to articles)
As of June 2017, this site is under new ownership and Michael is no longer associated with the site. Our intention moving forward is to keep providing great content for people interested in all things bicycling – whether that be bicycle commuting, bicycle safety, bicycle maintenance, or just plain using a bike to help the environment.
This site is hosted by WPEngine who are one of the fastest WordPress hosts around. If you love having a speedy website and are interested in hosting your own site or blog on WPEngine hardware, then click the banner below.
