TerraTrike has been featured in a Rapid Growth Media article titled "Beyond the Mitten". The article showcases West Michigan businesses that are changing the state, country and world.
When it comes to products changing the state, country and world, West Michigan should not be overlooked. This area is a hub for an incredibly diverse group of companies that have their sights set on success, and their efforts are making the globe more environmentally friendly, a better place for those battling mental health issues, increasingly delicious, and an all-around more interesting place to be. Some companies grew out of an idea, a sketch on a cocktail napkin or a simple observation at a construction site right here in West Michigan.
Recumbent triking is the fastest growing niche in the biking industry. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s time to change that. Terra Trike is the largest manufacturer of trikes — think reclining tricycles for adults (and children) — worldwide, selling more than all their competitors combined...and they are located in Grand Rapids. In 1996 two old buddies met up at a Christmas party, where Jack Wiswell showed Jack Oom a bike idea he had sketched out on a cocktail napkin — and Terra Trike was born.

The new Ramblers are here, and Bryan Ball from Bentrider Online just reviewed the x30 model.
"TerraTrike sticks out in the recumbent trike industry. While they do often innovate, they’re not always the first to jump on the newest trends. With the rare exception, they don’t usually try to compete in the ultra high-end segment that seems to grab all of the headlines. Instead, they focus on making affordable and accessible quality trikes while backing it up with a robust dealer network, a superb customer service reputation and some very savvy marketing. The results are trikes like the new 2016 Rambler which is possibly the best value-for-money trike they’ve ever produced in their 20-year history."We couldn’t agree more. The new Rambler is available at your local dealer or you can find out more by clicking here.

From BRAIN (Bicycle Retailer and Industry News)
"Recumbent tricycle manufacturer TerraTrike has launched a new website to help trike owners connect with other riders in their local communities.
The company said TrikeGroups.com will serve as the place to find like-minded recumbent trike enthusiasts who want to ride. Once they’ve signed up for a free account, users can find other riders in their local community, join a group ride, or organize and plan their own ride. Users can also view a map of other registered users nearby, create their own group, comment and post on forums."

TerraTrike’s Jon DeHate flew to Nebraska recently, to visit with several TerraTrike dealer shops. The two day visit was a great opportunity for Jon to offer training sessions, presentations, and learn more about the dealers. The shops he visited included ‘Xtreme Wheels’ in Council Bluffs, Iowa, ‘The Bike Rack’ (2 shops) in Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska, and the ‘New and Used Bike Shop’ in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The dealers were very receptive to Jon’s presentations, and welcomed his ideas on ways to grow their businesses, connect with customers via social media and use events to build new customer relationships.
The dealers were also excited to learn more about TerraTrike University, the online training and education program available to TerraTrike dealers. TTU was set up to train dealers in assembly, service and sales of the TerraTrikes product collection.
