Our story started in 2015. We noticed it was very difficult to find a city-proof bicycle of high quality. Plenty of top-quality cyclocross and mountain bikes, but for those looking for a bike as a transport and travel medium, the choice was very limited. Often even brands sold in bike stores turned out to be supermarket brands!
We thought Finnish cyclists deserve better. During three years, Pieter went to work in several reputable bike stores around his home town Antwerp, to gain experience and getting to know which brands offer the quality we wanted, for a fair price relative to the quality.
And in the spring of 2019, after moving back to Finland, we were ready to open our doors! And we’re doing exactly what we wanted: to present high quality bicycles (and accessories) for city bikers and commuters. Our open workshop is the heart of our store, and guarantees you the best possible after service! It also allows maintenance of virtually all types of bicycles.
We hope you to join our exciting journey to more and better cycling in Helsinki!

Meet the team
Pieter started his professional life as a biologist, but his passion for bicycles led to a different direction. Grown up as a cyclist near Antwerp , he knows how to ride a city. His first summer jobs’ earnings went to a road bike, which got to see many roads and countries. Moved back and forth between Belgium, Sweden and Finland and ended up starting his own store in 2019. He believes bicycles are the easiest part of the solution for mitigating climate change, improving living quality of cities as well as for maintenance of good physical and mental health.
Riku has been a Lucky Bird Bikes supporter since the very beginning, and has been joining the team in times of need. With his encyclopedic knowledge about bike technology, he’ll take care of just about any bike. On his recumbents he rides over 12.000 km per year, so don’t take his advice on tires lightly!
