Founding partners Michael Fattal and Steven Do are two friends who are passionate about tourism and cycling. Michael operates a travel company called PlanetBlueTours and Steve is a keen cyclist and bean counter.
Michael and Steven enjoyed organising regular local bike rides around Sydney with friends, family and visitors from overseas. A big challenge for Michael is that he was born with Cystic Fibrosis, a disease with no cure that has inhibited his ability to be physically active e.g. can’t walk more than 50 metres without being short of breath. Because he wanted to ride with his friends, Michael began to research into electric bikes. After months of searching, he found the perfect bike all the way from the UK – the Gocycle. From the idea of leading guided electric bicycle tours around Sydney, BlueBananas was born.
Our vision is for BlueBananas to become a world renowned Australian company operating in every major city in Australia.
