Henty talks with The Mercury
Hobart city opens up to workers on two wheels in time for Ride to Work Day.
Jeremy Grey’s Hobart-based company Henty has taken advantage of the world-wide bike boom and is exporting its innovative range of bike bags for commuters.
“We’ve been growing well, I’ve been full-time on the business after 18 months,” he said.
“Our bags give people a way of transporting their clothing so that they remain presentable. And they’re also carry-on luggage size, so a lot of people use them for business travel.
“For a lot of corporate people or people in uniforms it’s a massive inhibitor, it’s the number one reason people don’t ride to work. The wingman has become a portable locker for some people.
“It allows people to be active on the way to and from work. Our products remove the excuse.”
