The Me-Mover History
The Me-Mover started as an idea and a vision on how to move around the city and the urban areas in a fun, healthy and new way. Being based in Copenhagen – a city world famous for its many many bikes and focus on bike transportation – the Me-Mover team was inspired to innovate and develop a new way of moving around and transporting yourself an easy, healthy and fun way.
