“Outside of the concept being fun and easy to plug into any event, the people at Icicle Tricycles are great. We had a short notice order for two bikes, and they did just about everything they could to expedite the process. The bikes arrived in time, in great shape, and performed beautifully. They’re high quality units and the people clearly are passionate about their work.”

Fairmont Olympic Hotel
“Icicle Tricycles made our super sampling for the Gold Cup, Timbers, and Thorns matches so much more effective! With this unique mode of distributing product it really grabbed the attention of fans and passerby’s alike! Ryan and the whole team at Portland Pedals are great to work with, and very accommodating to our ever changing schedule and last minute adjustments. Very impressed by the on call maintenance team and their ability to make fixes when needed. I would highly recommend an Icicle Tricycle to spruce up an promotional event or private party.”
