About Allen Bike Racks
In 1967, after a few years of working on the aerospace technology for the Apollo missions, Dick Allen was out of a job. Government cutbacks led Allen, a Harvard-trained physicist, to transform his garage hobby into a new industry. A cycling enthusiast, inventor, and family man, Allen had a personal need for a bike-carrying device. On weekends, he would take his sons and wife to Cape Cod or the White Mountains of New Hampshire. What proved difficult time and again was the transport of his family’s bicycles. Rather than fight through inconvenience with twine and a dinged car, Allen sought an answer for himself as well as a market in which he foresaw major growth possibilities.
Always a pathfinder, Allen took to work in his Lincoln, Massachusetts garage in search of a more efficient way to transport bikes. Drafting designs during the day and constructing them throughout the night, he put together a model made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose casings (for padding). At first, the Allens tested the prototype on weekend excursions. Finding the first trunk-mounted rack to be a success, Dick started Allen Bike Racks. Dealer acceptance came quickly, and by 1971 Allen Bike Racks were sold nationally through a number of major bicycle distributors. Today, the company owns over three dozen patents and offers a versatile product line of bike racks while Dick’s son Alex now owns and operates the business. What started out as a small garage run operation now operates three warehouses nationally, two factories abroad, and has products sold in more than a dozen countries around the world.
Things happen for a reason
While on a bike ride at 530pm yesterday I decided I wanted to head to the beach (an hour away) to catch the sunset....rush home, shower, gas the car, grab a mocha, pick up my friend..... Hours later, after lots of pictures and the last bit of color was gone from the sky we were driving out of the crowed resort area when I see a little dog almost get hit by a van. I can tell he is lost. I stop the car and jump out. As I approach he stops and rolls to his side. I pick him up and he sweetly cuddles to me. He is a mini yorkie type, (almost a purse dog) well groomed, no collar; he shakes each time he hears fireworks. I am standing on the street corner, talking to anyone who will listen, no one knows of a lost dog, or is from this area. Finally a man helps, he brings water, he calls the police and gives us the address of the local humane society. He says we can put the dog in a cage over night. I say no way. My friend urges me to at least look. I am trying to figure out how I can take him home over night, then return tomorrow--an hour ride each way when my own dog Casper is sick and has a vet appt at 11am. We arrive at the humane society and much to my surprise I am very pleased with the set up, we put the dog in a carrier, then in a cage and lock the cage. No one can steal him tonight! I am not sure we did the right thing, but I did what I thought was best. I just know somewhere tonight a family is very sad. I know they will be looking and calling around tomorrow for him!
