Inspired Cycle Engineering
(ICE) has been producing recumbent tricycles in Falmouth, England since 1999 but it can trace its history back to the original Trice first produced in 1986. This hard earned experience coupled with the sheer pleasure of developing our unique recumbent cycles drives us on to continually refine our trike designs and hone the comfort and performance of each machine.
The full team at ICE can be found at their website. Here is some flavor of the founders who head up the team:
Neil started his working life as an apprentice in aircraft and precision engineering leading to many years as a CNC production engineer. A bit of a mid-life crisis made him question the large company environment and he therefore moved his family to Cornwall – a place where we all enjoy living. A chance encounter with Peter Ross of Crystal Engineering led Neil to Chris and together they hatched a plan to take over TRICE and together formed ICE. They both had a life-long connection to bikes and a passion for making things, recumbent trikes were just the exciting thing that they could get their teeth into. The company has grown to something that they could never have imagined and the enthusiasm remains.
Chris has a background in design and manufacturing and is a founder member and director of ICE. In the early years of ICE he split his time between brazing frames together and assembling trikes; his evenings were spent designing. He now splits his time between running the company and heading up the research and development team. His head is driven by perfection and his heart by beauty of form and function and these are passions are cultivated in ICE employees and built into every trike ICE produce.
