British Royalty Takes a Spin on a Rhoades Car Quadracycle

For Immediate Release

April 8, 2014

HENDERSONVILLE, TN — April 8, 2014 — Britain’s Prince Harry opened the new Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London on Friday and took a spin on a USA-Made Rhoades Car quadracycle.  

“It was really quite a surprise when we heard about the story in USA Today and then saw the BBC video of Prince Harry riding our 2-person Rhoades Cycle Car.  We couldn’t be more delighted to have someone as famous and affable as Prince Harry ride one of our quadracycles – and for such a great cause,” according to Bill Pomakoy, President of Rhoades Car International.

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is the newest and largest park in London and its mayor, Boris Johnson, commented “This is going to be a quite astonishing place to come and bring your family.” 

The 2-person Rhoades Cycle Car was brought to the park by non-profit Bikeworks LPrince Harryondon and Motivate East, a free inclusive sports participation project for disabled people. “Our customers are people of all ages who like the stability of having four wheels under them.  The beauty of our products is that almost everybody can ride a Rhoades Car.  If you think about it, it’s how Henry Ford started in the early 1900’s,” Pomakoy added. 

Rhoades Car International, headquartered in Hendersonville, Tennessee, offers a unique line of 1, 2 and 4-person quadracycles with multiple speeds and an optional motor that provides sustainable transportation for families and industry, helps fight obesity, and provides a way for disabled people to exercise safely either alone or with loved ones or caregivers.  Celebrating its 23rd year in business in 2014, the company relies on local suppliers that share the high quality craftsmanship philosophy to produce custom components for all of its 4-wheel “quad” bikes – proudly made in the USA!

Looking for a way to earn additional income, set your own schedule and have some fun?

Rhoades Car, a certified Made-in-the-USA manufacturer of 4-wheel quadracycles, is looking to expand its dealer network and the great news is that you do NOT have to be a bike shop to be a Rhoades Car dealer.  You do not even need a brick and mortar location. Our main requirement is that you participate in area shows and demos where people can test drive your Rhoades Car floor models.


All of our dealers receive a special dealer packet so they can promote their Rhoades Car display models at events where people congregate.

Opening Order Dealer Package Includes:

  • Four of our top-selling models for your display/exhibit
  • Exclusive Territory – no other dealer competition
  • Exclusive territory listing on the Rhoades Car website and a customized dealer  website
  • High commission on every Rhoades Car sale
  • 10’ x 10’ commercial-grade display tent with 4 zippered side walls, awning and stakes
  • One – 3’ x 10’ Rhoades Car Authorized Dealer Banner for inside your tent with full-color photos of our most popular models for you to promote

  • Customized Rhoades Car Business Card identifying you as an official Rhoades Car Authorized Dealer that you can have printed locally
  • Comprehensive dealer training program at our Hendersonville, TN factory
  • Consumer Financing program available to close sales

This unique program was developed by Rhoades Car because, quite simply, we want people from all over the country to be able to test drive a Rhoades Car without having to drive to the factory in Tennessee. Your display models act as your test drive vehicles and people who visit you and want to place an order, do so with YOU. You just call the order into Rhoades Car and we handle the transaction, place the order into our production schedule and ship the order directly to your customer (or to you, if you prefer).

The best news is that you’ll make a HIGH COMMISSION on every sale you make, and you don’t have to worry about anything else! There is even a financing program available for credit qualified customers at your events.

Think about the exhibiting opportunities you’ll have right in your area – county fairs, craft fairs, RV parks, gated community clubhouses, health clubs, retirement community expos, healthy living shows, green shows, industrial shows, civic events, parades, and more – the sky is the limit! Set up takes less than 15 minutes and your bikes are your display!

Rhoades Car – Bucking the Trend

The SportPed by Rhoades CarCool Ride - side-by-side

The July edition of Bicycle Retailer is hot off the press.  It’s the annual bicycle industry stats issue. One article states that “The bicycle retail market remained essentially flat dollar-wise in 2011, ticking up 1.1% to $6 billion.”  It appears that many of those imported bikes from China and Taiwan are still sitting on store shelves.

Not the case at Rhoades Car!  2011 sales at Rhoades Car were up 26% versus the industry average of 1.1% and in 2012 – are you ready for this – sales are up over 60% year to date!  How can one company buck the trend like Rhoades Car?  After all, we are a 21 year old company, we manufacture a “pricey” product and our economy is in the dumpster, right?  Do you think it has anything to do with our Made-in-the-USA philosophy?  Could it be that we constantly create new products that appeal to new demographics? Maybe it’s our diverse advertising program and social media presence.  Could it be our interactive website with over 1.5 million visitors?  Do you think it has anything to do with our incredibly talented and excited staff when people call in to discuss our products?  You may have guessed the answer. It’s not just one of those reasons – it’s ALL of them combined and more!

You see, we have created a culture of fun at Rhoades Car.  We want our employees to enjoy working here, we want our website visitors to enjoy their time on our site, we want our Facebook friends to enjoy reading about Rhoades Car even if they never buy one, and we want the delivery people to enjoy delivering each and every Rhoades Car to our customers.  But our ultimate goal is for each of our customers to love their Rhoades Car! So we’ll continue to reach out to tell our story at every opportunity and hopefully, we can keep up the upward sales trend of a true Made-in-the-USA brand!

Don’t keep us a secret – please tell your friends about Rhoades Car.

It’s Time to Live the American Dream – Are You an Entrepreneur at Heart?

By Bill Pomakoy

There are all kinds of people in our country and not everyone has a dream of owning their own company or becoming self-employed. But a good portion of us do have the ambition to control our own destiny. For those of you who have ever thought of it, please read on.

Up until 16 years ago, I was very frustrated working for a mid-sized company with multiple locations that did not appreciate my talents. I remember one situation in particular where I built an entire marketing plan for a product line that had tremendous potential. Those who were in charge of that product line were oblivious to its potential – including the VP of Sales at the time! I was in a different division but I just couldn’t help myself so I submitted the idea, in full detail, to that VP of Sales. I wasn’t looking for anything in return – NOTHING! It was a no brainer, this product line could have catapulted that division to new heights and all they had to do was implement the plan I had developed for them. You know what happened? You guessed it, absolutely nothing. Several months later, I asked the VP of Sales about it.  His response?  He didn’t remember receiving it.

The handwriting was clearly on the wall – it was time to get out and control my own destiny. And I did. That was 15 years ago and now I own the most unique and incredible little company in the world – Rhoades Car – The 4-Wheel Bike That Drive Like a Car!

Are you frustrated in your career like I was? Are you looking for something to do to supplement your current income? Are you retired and looking for additional income? Are you a retailer looking for a unique new product line to bring in additional sales?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, then you need to consider becoming a Rhoades Car exclusive dealer. Our dealerships are different from other dealer opportunities because you don’t have to have a retail store to be a Rhoades Car dealer. All you need is the ambition to reach out to those in your community and bring attention to your floor models. This is the first time in 21 years that Rhoades Car has offered this opportunity – so don’t miss out. The investment is currently under $20,000.

If it’s time for you to control YOUR own destiny and live the American Dream, then act now by calling Bob Reed at 941-256-1056 or Holly Skinner at 800-531-2737 for all the details.
