    The Ambassador Program

    We don't just build bags. We build community. We lead the way.

    Two Wheel Gear Ambassadors

    The Two Wheel Gear Ambassador Program is about recognizing leaders who inspire others to commute by bike. Leaders who go first. Some of our ambassadors come to us organically. Some we seek out. But they are all Two Wheel Gear customers and riders. We build deep relationships and support them in their community endeavours. We join them on their commutes and craft profiles of their characteristics that often go unnoticed. Our ambassadors are independent, rebels by nature, and we find immense pride in showcasing their commuting adventures.
