Year-end Review – Rhoades Car


2016-anniversary-slide

Rhoades Car is now almost 26 years old.  At this point in human form, RC is now having to really understand how truly hard life is and coming to the understanding that the real world is not your friend, at all.  But, you’re free and young and daring to face any fears while your responsibilities are low.  If its a time like mine, RC is really looking forward to what happens next and anxious to grow and learn so that you can take on the real world offensively.  The foundation is set but now’s the time to jump and see how far you can land.  That’s where I see our company now.  Going into year 26, we know who we are and we know what we can do, but we’re going to take some leaps and we’re going to take some risks because we have a lot more to achieve.

This year we made some great strides in continuing to build a brand and product that helps change lives and improves the quality of life for so many people.  We’ve helped everyone from the senior citizen who wanted a fun and exercising way to get to his community center, to the maintenance worker in the large distribution center who needed a safer and healthier way to get across the facility, and to the grandparents who wanted the whole family (including grandkids) to enjoy time together where all could participate and all could have genuine, healthy fun.  That’s why the face of Rhoades Car is really hard to paint because of its diversity.  We never want to change that.

We’ve made great strides in continuing to make the quadracycle stronger and better equipped for a safe and enjoyable ride.  We’ve designed a new spacer for the rear axle on  that ensures a safer ride.  We implemented mandatory dual disc brakes on all models that include two or more people.  We created the very first Rhoades Car Rail Bike which has a dual purpose of riding the rails or roads.  And the biggest success we had in 2016 was releasing the popular, limited edition 25th Anniversary Bike.  It really has been a great year for Rhoades Car.

So that brings us to question, what’s in store for 2017?  We are moving strongly forward into the new year.  We have some strong partnerships that will unfold and that will help us take Rhoades Car to new levels.   It’ll be hard to top this year and all the success we’ve had but our goals are bigger and our hearts are more passionate to share this amazing brand with more people throughout the world this coming year.  So we hope you’ll continue to help us spread the word about Rhoades Car because we’ve got a lot to do in 2017 and we’re pretty confident you’re going to want to join in.

From all of us here at Rhoades Car, we want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thanks for following us this year and if you haven’t done so already, please check out our new pricing guide that you can download for free on our website here.

TESTIMONIAL

VegCycle

We love to hear and see the creativity that our customers have with our bikes.  Loa, from Cincinnati, OH, recently crowd-funded the very first “VegCycle.”  “The VegCycle™ campaign will help fund the construction, storage and maintenance of a portable hydroponic growing structure. We want to create a bicycle with a huge tray of plants on the back that are growing in nutrient rich water which is fed by fish that live below the plants. To complete the sustainable growing cycle, the pump that circulates the water between the fish and the plants will be powered by a solar cell.”

The picture above is one from the VegCycle team.  This is a really neat and impressive bike and we’re glad that we could help provide the quadracycle model for VegCycle and we hope they continue to have success in their community!  You can learn more about the VegCycle and their updates at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/vegcycle-community-education#/.

We recently had a visit from one of our favorite customers as she was passing through for family reunions in Tennessee.  Diana T. from Florida dropped her bike off for some work to be done and we loved having her stop at Rhoades Car HQ.  When she came back through to pick up her Rhoades Car, we had to take some pictures.  We’re glad that she’s a part of the Rhoades Car family and look forward to her passing through again whenever she can!

BRINGING NEW LIFE
IMG_8025
After 25 years of business, Rhoades Cars have fulfilled many different purposes and platforms.  It’s truly a joy to see how many different applications our bikes have taken on over the years and how many lives have been impacted at every level.  One of our growing markets is with assisted living and rehabilitation facilities throughout the U.S..  In particular our two and four seat models have changed the atmosphere of on-site amenities for patient experiences and living.  From an active living standpoint, our bikes allow guests to ride a four-wheel bike and get active exercise while also allowing their family members or friend along for the ride.  The rehabilitation facilities allow our bikes to be used for the guests to rebuild their necessary bones or muscles in order to regain strength.  Since we have multiple seat options, trainers and physical therapists can join their patients on the ride while working or assisting with them on their exercise movements in riding the Rhoades Car.   It brings a new quality of life to these facilities and in most cases it mutually benefits the patients and their family members when everyone gets involved (not to mention the outdoor aspect which most don’t get to enjoy).  You can see that this provides strength to a physical body but it also improves the mental state as well by being able to enjoy an activity where you’re enjoying the outdoors and allowing your mind and body to work together in a controlled environment.  We’re excited to be a part of this growing market and will continue to help make customized improvements for each facility based on their specific needs.

TESTIMONIAL
We had the pleasure to work with a new customer this past month and actually customized a 4W1P model into a 25th Year Anniversary Bike.  She couldn’t wait to receive her custom-made bike and we couldn’t wait for her to get it.  We are thrilled the way it turned out and we know she’s riding her local streets showing off a limited edition bike that draws the eyes of everyone around!
“My 25th Special Edition bike arrived today. I’m loving it. Thank you Rhoades Car!

A PIECE OF HISTORY
IMG_1255

Seen here is the first ever Rhoades Car built.  This particular bike was made in 1989 which was two years before Rhoades Car was actually started.  David Rhoades created this bike and went on to create a strong and solid business of making quality quadracycles for years to come.  This unique piece of history is displayed in our new “Rhoades Car Headquarters” conference room.  We host Rhoades Car customers, partners, and enthusiasts in our newly remodeled room and we’re especially proud of this bike and the story that it holds.  We love having visitors come and check out our facility.  This past week we had a couple from Memphis, TN come and tour our headquarters and they increased their Rhoades Car fleet from one GoBoy to two so that both can enjoy their time together outdoors.  We also had a gentleman and his grandson, from Miami, FL,  stop by on their way to Virginia as a part of their grandfather/grandson road trip.  He ended up purchasing a brand new 4W1P model and he’s extremely excited to get his new bike out on the streets of his neighborhood.  We cannot tell you how proud we are of our facility but also how much we enjoy having visitors.  We love how people get to see an inside look at our operations and get a better understanding of what all we do here.  You also get to test drive certain models and sometimes even get to see things we don’t have on the market yet!  If you’re ever in the area or even passing through, we’d love to have you stop by  and say hey.

TESTIMONIAL
From an 80 year old man who has owned his Rhoades Car for 17 years and has put 50,000 miles on it. when asked if it was worth the investment:
“H*** YES! It has been more than worth it. It’s the best thing I’ve ever bought, and I’d be lost without it. It’s the best form of transportation I’ve ever owned, and the best part is NEVER needing gas!”
– Carlton R., Paramount, CA

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!

For more information about Rhoades Car, call 800-531-2737, send an email to info@rhoadescar.com or visit www.RhoadesCar.com. For information on exclusive dealerships in the USA, visit the special dealer page on the Rhoades Car website.  For International dealership inquiries contact info@rhoadescar.com.

Rhoades Car Looking to Expand its Exclusive Dealer Network

Economic Forecast Right for Rhoades Car

Rhoades Car as a healthy alternative to a golf cart is set to play a much larger role in transportation as the trend for more frugal urban living increases with Americans wanting to live closer to workplaces, shopping, schools, and other community gathering places. Continue reading →

Economic Forecast Right for Rhoades Car


“Calmer waters lie ahead for the economy”, according to the 1/10/14 edition of The Kiplinger Letter.  Knight Kiplinger has been my favorite forecaster for over 30 years, mainly because he is usually right. GDP growth is up, he says, along with job gains and home buying.

We can all let out a deep breath after hearing that one. Even if he is only half right, life will improve for many.

Mr. Kiplinger doesn’t just stick to economic forecasts. He also thinks urban dwellers are steadily rising as people want to live closer to workplaces, shopping, schools, and other community gathering places. Some even want to give up car ownership. We are already seeing much of this as golf carts zoom through neighborhoods and out to a nearby grocery store. This makes sense as people aren’t likely to forget the economic downtown we’ve just lived through and look for more frugal ways to live.

Saving car maintenance is good, but we at Rhoades Car believe it isn’t enough. Daily exercise should be in there somewhere as the Centers for Disease Control repeatedly tells us that 2/3 of Americans are overweight and 1/3 obese. These high numbers mean increasing cases of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, multiple joint replacements, and the like, which can lead to less quality time with our family due to health issues. Ultimately, health issues like these lead to shortened life spans, which cuts family time too short…something most of us don’t even want to think about.

So don’t go down that road. The Rhoades Car SOLARped can solve the problem by allowing its riders to pedal side-by-side in separate gears, engaging the solar-powered motor only when needed as a pedal-assist. Need to drop the kids off? No problem. Just add a back seat – bench or bucket – to your basket for holding the groceries. Add a weather cover in cooler climates. All this, and still made in the USA.

Are we looking at the car of the future?SOLARped P2
