Coop de Bici was born in 2013 at the hands of Oriol Vidal and Javi Calero, two mechanics with over 20 years experience in bicycle repair, and with the help of Ignasi Mata, an amateur in the bike world that is capable of working as a carpenter, welder, mechanic or whatever it takes. A team that meshed very well and was completed with Christian Vidal, in charge of all administrative tasks.
If you find them in Sants, it is not by chance. The traditional association movement of this working class neighbourhood is very appealing because Coop de Bici is a non-profit cooperative. That is, a company committed to working for labour integration and who are interested in collaborative work. This is why they participate in the Red de caminos of Cristina Jané, a cycling expert who organizes guided mountain excursions to encourage the observation and to get to know the natural environment.
