Neutral Cycle World is a community — a collaboration between artists; craftsman; engineers; painters; photographers; wood, leather, fabric and metal workers–all working closely to bring the soul and beauty of Urbana to the rest of the world.

At the heart of the workshop is the simple belief that bicycle is for everyone and we can change life with it.

It is our goal to present you the Neutral Cycle World. By exploring our projects, you will find our hard works, our passions, our bikes, our community and together how we move the world forward.

Join us and keep in touch.
