Let's introduce the team behind Go Dutch

Bas, Founder:

In 2010, founder Bas left Amsterdam to follow his heart, ultimately landing in Toronto to be with his Canadian wife and raise their two young Dutch Canadian sons. While he loves his life in Canada, he felt a void – his bicycle. Over the past decade, Bas explored a variety of bikes in Canada but couldn't find anything that matched the authentic Dutch style he grew up with, especially within a reasonable budget. Determined to bridge the gap, Bas aims to share his passion for bikes that seamlessly take you from work to a friend's house, to a patio for a beer, and back home, all while ensuring comfort and style. Most importantly, he wants his boys to experience cycling the Dutch way.

Carlos, Partner:

Carlos Rizo, brings his unique blend of Dutch heritage and Colombian roots to the team. Born in Colombia but conceived in the Netherlands, Carlos has always carried a deep connection to Dutch bicycle culture. His childhood was adorned with the influence of Dutch roots, and this connection fueled his passion for cycling. Riding his own Dutch bikes for many years, Carlos embodies the authentic spirit of Go Dutch. His commitment to the brand goes beyond professional duties; it's a personal journey inspired by a genuine love for Dutch bikes and the desire to share that passion with the community.
