Smooth Ride’s story begins long before 2016 when we first opened our doors for business. For years, brothers Joel and Stephen have been cycling around the world. From Phuket to Paris, this duo has explored different cultures and landscapes from behind the common comfort of their handlebars.
Growing up on an outlying island in Hong Kong without cars, the two brothers rode bikes almost before they could even walk. Their humble beginnings helped them to appreciate two core pillars that make Smooth Ride what it is today: Bicycling and a love for Asia’s World City (HK).
As time passed, they continued to ride their bikes and when they were old enough to travel they took full advantage of seeing what the rest of their country had to offer. Traveling throughout most of Asia and Europe they would schedule bike tours at every place visit to fully absorb the local history and street culture.
Eventually, while riding through Hong Kong’s countryside they began discussing their dreams of being able to provide that feeling of exploring and awe to others.
Thus, Smooth Ride was born.
