Lynn Berendsen has worked for various clients via Bikeshift in recent years. We have always enjoyed working with her! A place in the Rider of the week blog is of course the least we could do!
Three years ago, after a dark period in my life, I started working for a delivery service in Utrecht via Bikeshift. At the time, it was quite a challenge for me to pick up the thread and get back into (working) life.
From day one, the communication with Bikeshift was incredibly smooth, clear and transparent. I knew what was expected of me, both on the shop floor and in the collaboration with Bikeshift.
I loved doing the delivery work, cycling through the city with music through my earphones to clear my head. Later, I took on a more managerial role, which was only encouraged by Bikeshift and was proof to me that I had managed to pick up the thread.
When I later became a single mother and started to work for another delivery service, Bikeshift again gave me all the space I needed to see how I could manage to organise my life with my job and a small child.
In the meantime, I am ready for a next step and so the collaboration with Bikeshift stops now. I can only say that I am extremely grateful for the good times I've had at Bikeshift, for their confidence in me, the clear communication and the opportunity to look together at what is possible.
