Jon Hicken, Marketing Manager at Restrap
In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast, I’m speaking with Jon Hicken, the marketing manager of Restrap. For the past while, I had been thinking it would be great to reach out to companies whose products I have used and found to be of exceptional quality and practicality and to have them on the show. Having used their race aero bags throughout the past year, I personally believe they are second to none. After reaching out to Jon, the marketing manager, I learned that he is quite a well travelled bike tourer and bikepacker, having bikepacked and toured in Scotland, Japan, Croatia and more. I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak with him and learn more about the cycle luggage industry and his own adventures.
Keep on pedalling.
