A joy ride.

About Linus
Founded in 2007 by Adam McDermott, Linus was created with the belief that simple, elegant and functional bikes can inspire people to ride more and drive less. Beyond the simple joy of it, Linus sees bicycles as a practical solution to big problems: they improve health and well-being, reduce carbon emissions, enrich communities, and make neighborhoods more livable and connected. With over 100,000 bikes sold since its launch, Linus has removed millions of car miles from the road and atmosphere.
