MEET THE ICE TRIKES TEAM


Neil Selwood

Neil Selwood

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 in 1998 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. When Neil is not at work he is often out and about surfing at one of Cornwall’s many lovely beaches.
Chris Parker

Chris Parker

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.
Ben Dickinson

Ben Dickinson

Ben has been with ICE almost since the start. Multi-talented and obsessed with perfection he splits his time between product development and marketing. If it is made by ICE and looks good, Ben had a hand in it. A keen trike rider of many years, Ben has done many miles of product development and testing. Ben is the former World HPV Multi- track champion riding his works-prepared ICE trike and was crowned British Multi-track (trikes) Champion in 2003 in the British Human Power Club (BHPC) series.
John Olson

John Olson

John is an ICE veteran of many years and spends more of his day than he would like keeping our IT alive and healthy, His boundless knowledge of everything is key to ICE’s success. John is a vastly experienced craftsman who was a key part of our manufacturing team until being handed the poisoned chalice that is IT, a role in which he excels. John, originally from Canada, designed and built his first of many recumbents back in 1980; experience like that cannot be bought.
Hero Selwood

Hero Selwood

Hero sorts out the shipping paperwork for the trikes to go all over the world. She has worked for ICE for almost twenty years in various capacities. Hero is now enjoying working part-time and in her spare time spends time knitting and doing patchwork and pottering in the garden. She swims regularly all year round in the sea off the beautiful beaches around Falmouth. She has been inspired by the ICE Strava Challenge to cycle much more than she previously did and is now loving riding her Shimano STEPS equipped trike all around the beautiful Cornish countryside.
Mikiko Kimura

Mikiko Kimura

Kim is one of the original members at ICE. Kims busy workload includes assembly, quality control and packaging of the ICE Accessories. She also divides her time as the Accounts Assistant and Translatorfor the company speaking Japanese, Taiwanese and English. In her spare time she is a full time mother and a keen runner.
Darren Osbourne

Darren Osbourne

Darren worked in the local Tin mining industry before joining ICE. Working in a dry workshop lit with sunlight suits his health better but he misses the danger. Darren is a key part of our in-house manufacturing team making many of the smaller accessories we sell. His need for danger is satisfied by his hobbies; fire juggling, and shooting antique firearms. He also runs a toy shop in his spare time.
Daniel Pearce

Daniel Pearce

Dan joined the company in 2009 as a mechanic, neglecting to mention his degree in photography. His talents soon came to light and he now lives a double life split between the wheel building workshop and creating ICE promotional films and photographs. When not editing films or building wheels he can be found throwing himself down steep hillsides on this mountain bike.
Andy Tebbutt

Andy Tebbutt

Andy worked for ICE since 2010. Working first as a final trike assembly builder he has personally hand-built over 5,000 trikes that are currently being ridden all over the world. He now is our Customer Support Manager and most probably the voice you will hear when you call ICE to ask any questions or place your orders. What Andy doesn’t know about trikes and bikes is not worth knowing. Before ICE he manageed Raleigh Cyclelife Store in Loughborough. In his spare time Andy enjoys being a member of Tennis Falmouth’s A team (when his wrist allows) and he rode over 2,500 miles last year on his ICE Sprint E-Assist E6100 with an Alfine 8 hub.

Patrick Selwood

Patrick Selwood

Patrick officially joined ICE in 2010 after finishing at university but has been around the company, working in the school holidays and riding trikes, since he was 10 years old, being the son of one of ICE’s founders, you could say recumbents are in his blood. Patrick is now our Head of Brand and Customer Experience, making him responsible for the trikes you ride and how ICE carries itself in the public eye. Outside of ICE he loves to ride mountain bikes, surf and work on his old motorbike (and maybe even sometimes ride it on the odd occasion when its working).
Wayne Spencer

Wayne Spencer

Wayne is amongst many other things a God fearing fully qualified car mechanic, every factory should have one! He has an appetite for work that leaves others trailing in his wake. His time is split between putting together sub-assemblies of trike parts and packing built trikes prior to shipping; the accuracy and care taken in packing helps to ensure happy customers.
Ewen Bell

Ewen Bell

Ewen joined ICE in 2012 having completed 26 years in the Royal Navy as a fireman, aircraft engineer and finally as an instructor of avionics to young trainees. He now applies this experience to honing the quality assurance procedures and has seized the mantle of health and safety aka the boring stuff. In his spare time Ewen is also the chairmen of a charity that helps adults with learning difficulties develop in the community, he even manages to squeeze in teaching cycle safety in local schools.
