With interests in bike touring, commuting, trail riding, back country exploration, camping, Rock climbing, and a plethora of other outdoor sports, heath's weekends are packed with what he calls product testing. This works out well for both heath and planet bike since he directs product development and takes every opportunity to indulge in product field testing. Heath comes to planet bike with 12 years in the bicycle industry; dabbling in everything from sales to national bicycle advocacy work, product development to working in a shop and building trail. Cycling has always been a big part of my life starting with my first bike, a 16 inch fixed wheel bike my dad retrieved from a muddy River bed, says heath. Whether it's hitting the trail, going to work, or going to the grocery store, sustainability and my impact on the environment are top priorities for me. I'm proud to be a part of planet bike where these priorities are both shared, and promoted.
Notify drivers and other cyclists of your presence from up to 1 mile away with the Planet Bike Blinky safety set. Equipped with one super-bright white LED for the front and a red LED for the back, the safety set provides 220 degrees of visibility in both flashing and steady modes, depending on your preference. Even better, the Blinky lights clip to just about anything--from handlebars to panniers--with handlebar brackets, a seat post mount, and a seat stay mount to get you started. As a result, you have no excuse to go unseen while riding. Each Blinky light, which comes with an ultra-compact weatherproof case, runs for up to 100 hours on a single CR2032 watch battery (included). The set is also backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
About Planet Bike
In November of 1996, Planet Bike was founded in Madison, Wisconsin. In many ways, Planet Bike began as a social experiment that dedicated itself to doing business in a different way. Instead of being just another company that develops and sells products with profit as its end goal, Planet Bike wanted to help bring about positive change for people, their communities, and the environment.
Despite being a simple machine, the people at Planet Bike have always believed that the bicycle has great potential to help improve the world and the lives of the people in it. From the start, they have embraced an alternative corporate purpose which seeks to help get more people on bicycles by making communities friendlier places for the self-propelled. By donating 25% of company profits to causes that promote and facilitate bicycle usage, Planet Bike hopes to make an impact.
Social experiments aside, Planet Bike was born from the heart of a cyclist with a goal of making innovative, high quality, and practical bicycle accessories. Simply put, they strive to design and develop the best bicycle products in the world. In the company's short ten year history, they have made important product innovations within the bicycle industry. Advancements include the 4-line computer which is now a standard in the industry and the world's first self-contained HID light. Not bad for a company that ten years ago started as a one man operation. Today, while still a small company, Planet Bike continues to evolve and improve their product line with the goal of always striving to build accessories that make it easier for people to ride their bikes. Since 1996, Planet Bike's financial support of the grassroots bicycle movement has totaled $500,000. By 2010, they have made a goal to donate $1 million to organizations that are dedicated to making America a friendlier place for cyclists.
