That bicycle gets you everywhere: across campus in-time for class, flying over the finish line, or just down the street for the very first time.

Somewhere down the road, your bike became your sidekick. And we always take care of our sidekicks. Think about it — you can’t have Batman without Robin.

Now that you’re moving or going to the next race, your favorite ride now needs a ride of its own. And not just any old ride. This has to be special because your bike is special. You’ve built memories together.

When you ship a bike, it often proves to be expensive, frustrating, and worrisome. Just think about the prep alone!

1. Buy the boxes and zip ties.
2. Disassemble and protect with padding.
3. Make sure that your bike actually fits inside the box. Trust us, this one is a toughie.

It’s exhausting to say the least. And it’s not that your bike isn’t worth the work, but why take the hard way when you have an easier path?

Instead of stuffing your bicycle into a cramped box and throwing it into the back of a random truck to be tossed around, have a neighbor hand-deliver it for you. They’re going that way anyway, so why not help you out?

In the end, you’re saving so much dough — not to mention the environment — by sending it with Roadie rather than shipping through a usual carrier. Someone in your area is already heading that direction and can transport your sidekick with care and hands-on service.

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a bike. And that’s pretty close. So, make sure you take care of your bike BFF.

With all the money you saved, you can afford to buy your bike those shiny new tires you’ve been eyeing lately.
