Safe Cycling is celebrating 5 years today! This is of course a major milestone for our company! Naturally there will be some sort of celebration tonight after the seventh stage of the Tour de France. We thought it would be nice to share our journey over these 5 years.
We started Safe Cycling in summer of 2016. We spent the first year on developing several ideas for safety systems and ended up with the Safety Sign.
During 2017 we managed to produce 3 prototypes of the Safety Sign. We got a opporunity to test the signs and systems during Arctic Race of Norway 2017. After the race we talked to our partners to further developed the Safey Sign, based on the feedback from riders and organisers.
In 2018 we produced 10 new Safety Signs and got our chance in our first race outside Norway, with Deutchland Tour. During this race we got a lot of amazin feedback from the riders, including Tour de France winner Geirant Thomas. This led to several new races for 2019, including races like Tour de France, World Championchip Yokrshire and Paris-Roubaix.
2020 season was strongly affected by COVID-19. We still managed to be a part of races in Belgium, France and Italy. We also expanded our amount of Safety Signs to a total of 20 signs.
2021 has so far been a great season for us. We are now more or less a part of all the biggest cycling races in Europe. We also se that more and more races are interessed in our service which is great.
We hope to continue our work for the next 5 years as well. We still feel motivated to continue this journey and make this wonderful sport safer. Our plan over the next years are to continue growing and we want to help many new cycling races. We look forward to the challenge. Cheers for 5 years with Safe Cycling!
