Dick Allen began his career working on aerospace technology for the Apollo program, until government cutbacks eliminated his job in 1967. That’s when the Harvard-trained physicist embarked on a new mission, transforming his hobby into a brand new industry. A cycling enthusiast and inventor, Allen wanted a way to carry bikes on his car for weekend trips around New England with his family. He was tired of hassling with twine and dinging up his car, so he set out to create a better solution — not only for himself, but also for the growing market he foresaw.
Working long hours in his Massachusetts garage, he drafted designs during the day and constructed them at night. His built his first prototype with electrical conduit, metal strapping and fire hose casings for padding. After testing out the trunk-mounted rack on family excursions, he knew he had a winner, and founded Allen Bike Racks.
