April 18, 2018
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. TerraTrike 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 TerraTrike was born.
