Outspoken Cyclist Podcast
Podcasting Since 2010
My name is Adam Hokin and I’m the COO of PedalCell, a company that specializes in powering technology onboard bicycles. We are in the midst of launching our product that we feel could be of interest to your Outspoken Cyclist Podcast listeners.
CadenceX converts a rider’s motion into stable and consistent electricity to power their electronics, ranging from smartphones, lighting, GPS navigators, cameras, and pretty much any USB device (photos + more info attached). Our patent-pending architecture produces upwards of 6X more electricity than most dynamos with stable power that can be added to almost any bicycle in minutes. We found this product creates a huge value for bikepackers, tour riders, commuters and more!
My co-founder and I are college students who have been working on this product over the past 5 years. While we are frequent cyclists, our background stems from the electronics industry, giving us a unique perspective on the current and future states of cycling technology.
We’re in the midst of prepping the launch of our CadenceX pre-orders and would love to talk more about how we could collaborate (happy to send a review unit). Let me know if you’re interested!
Let me do some sleuthing and get back to you. Thanks for reaching out. Diane
Hi Diane! I wanted to reach out and see if you were familiar with velofix, a Mobile Bike Shop company that operates vans in 120 territories throughout North America. velofix’s goal is to offer a convenient premium service that allows you to save time and ride more and they have recently announced significant expansion with a larger fleet of velofix Mobile Bike Shops, comprising a growing family of franchise partners and corporate-owned Mobile Bike Shops.
I think this might be of interest to your Outspoken Cyclist listeners and would love to connect you with Chris Guillemet, velofix Co-Founder and CEO.
Let me know what you think!
Thanks for the consideration,
I did an interview with Chris in back in February, 2018. Here is the link to that episode. https://outspokencyclist.com/2018/02/show-387-february-10-2018/ Thanks for listening! Diane
Hello – My name is Roff Smith. I wrote the piece in National Geographic about the 1890s bicycle boom. I received a note from Diane about an interview – the note went into my spam folder and I deleted it accidentally. I’d be happy to chat though. Just drop me a line. Roff
Hi Roff. Send you an email earlier today. Please check for it from firstname.lastname@example.org
Hello, my name is Alex and I’m on the marketing team for Pointz, a startup app in the biking and micro-mobility world — I’d love for our founder and CEO, Maggie, to be a guest on your show, and I think it could be a worthwhile partnership.
Our product is a nuanced route planner, tailored specifically for bikes and small vehicles, that uses custom user input and crowdsourced data; we can be thought of as “Waze for bikes,” and want to make rides safer and more comfortable. We’re in the beta testing phase and looking to launch soon.
Here are some highlights of our story/model that could be of interest to your listener base:
Maggie completed a cross country bike tour, and realized along the way that the mapping services she used were not ideal for bikes
She found herself relying on the knowledge of local communities, and wanted to tap in to this expert knowledge in a helpful app
Maggie is a woman in tech, entrepreneurship, and cycling; she codes with the development team while also running the entire project.
She has won a startup pitch competition at Brown university, and is now overseeing a group of dedicated students from across the country to help get Pointz launched
She has some experience guesting on a podcast which can be seen below, and would be happy to discuss any of her experiences as a cyclist, her time in the riding community, and the dynamics of being an entrepreneur in this space.
Thank you for the time and consideration!
I’m happy to look into this and get back to you. Thanks for reaching out – I love knowing about women in the sport and will absolutely look to having her on the show.
