About Tyler Smith

Tyler is the original founder of Bicycle 2 Work, and Planet Earth’s premier bike commuter enthusiast.

It all started with a BMX bike, but over the years its grown into a passion for every kind (mountain, road, cruisers). He just loves being outside pedaling around. And when I say ‘passionate’, I mean it.

True story – one time he rode his bike all the way from Central California to Tijuana, Mexico to enjoy some tacos with his buddy Rob. It took a week and the tacos were ok, but the journey was totally worth it.

Tyler’s love of bikes all started with a BMX back in the day, and that’s spiraled into a passion for all types of bikes and cycling escapades.

He cycles for fun, but also regularly takes the opportunity to ride his bike to work. The commute is great exercise, saves gas $, helps the planet out, and makes him feel good. He’s ridden in Gran Fondo events, local cycling groups, and just individually.
