Our story started with a vision to further liveable cities and communities and energize healthy living. Cycling has always been our passion from the start, and we see bike commuting as a sustainable means of transportation that will help build a greener planet.
Our team is on a mission to create solutions for convenience, security, and innovation in cycling. We are developing an integrated solution of locking and charging infrastructure for bikes, electric bikes and scooters with the aim to connect communities, reduce the number of bike theft each year and promote cycling as a viable form of commuting. We believe that our initiative will also help support e-bikes and bicycles as a growing solution to reduce traffic congestion, pollution and promote a healthier lifestyle.
If you would like to support our initiative, see how you can help build a safer bike community and a greener planet.

Grayson began his business career in a humble little bike shop in Vancouver. This led to the creation of the first Canadian “mountain bike”. And in turn, this bike shop grew into Canada’s most prestigious bicycle manufacturing firms: Rocky Mountain Bicycles and Race Face. In 2000, after selling both companies, he spent many months in relative solitude – writing and reading. In 2010, he took a turn toward social business investing. This eventually led to JusTea, a social enterprise with manufacturing in Nandi Hills Kenya and Vancouver BC. Now he’s active coaching Canadian and International business leaders with InsideOut Consulting. And he’s still an active year-round cyclist.
