Our Story

It was the end of 2015, the motorcycle season had just ended and winter depression was starting to set in. Nonetheless we wanted to enjoy our machines somewhere, if not on the streets, then on the internet. We found several social networks which were more like news sites. As they were all overloaded with articles and ads we quickly abandoned this idea. There was no place where we could show our rides and document their lives. No place where we could store our experiences with our machines. No place to have a look at the rides of our friends and their adventures. As we have been programmers for several years and already had experience by working on another vehicle platform, we thought to ourselves: if no one else provides us with what we want, we have to make it ourselves ;-). The idea of Wheelcrowd was born. For over a year we worked day and night besides our day jobs on the creation of this platform. We quit our jobs in early 2017 when we were ready to release the platform and here we are now. :-)

Our highest goal is to create a platform for the community with the community. Your input and your ideas are what motivates us every day. It also helps us to improve the platform and make a place for everyone who shares a passion in vehicles.

Who we are
