BikeLid® was the brainchild of then University of Washington Physics Lab Engineer and trained sculptor, Steve Voorhees, who was looking for secure bike parking to encourage more bike commuting. The first BikeLid design had to catch your eye and be easy to operate–it was part sculpture and engineering marvel. Steve launched BikeLid at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
BikeLid®s are now installed across the country, in Canada, and Europe. Steve’s ongoing passion for helping companies integrate environmentally and socially responsible practices into how they do business, led to his later founding a wind and solar development company, Ridgeline Energy in 2002 and a renewable energy solutions company, Teichos Energy in 2012.
