Meet the Team of Nomad Cycles
Brad started working for EcoSpeed in 2007 on a volunteer basis after a chance sighting of an EcoSpeed kit. He had fallen in love with the machine and all the social, environmental, and physical implications that electric bikes offer the world. He joined the team and has since graduated with a bachelors degree in Human Studies and a certificate in Business Management from Marylhurst University.
Brad worked for EcoSpeed from the ground up and has gone from summer volunteer to General Manager to now owning the EcoSpeed brand for his new Bike Shop Nomad Cycles. He wants to help people experience the same joy of riding electric bikes that he experiences with his, and he is dedicated to providing this opportunity to everyone. He believes in hand on and when you work with us he will be your personal contact as you start your journey to ride an electric bike.
Jean became an EcoSpeed rider in 2009, and joined the team in May of 2014. An enthusiastic convert, Jean is excited about the benefits of electric cycling and wishes to share them with the world. She has a background in event planning and teaching, and currently runs her own successful craft business, Mama Jean’s Kind Threads. Jean uses her bike as her company car for her business, from picking up supplies and doing runs to the post office and deliveries to galleries. Today, she is Nomad Cycles Marketing Promotions Manager.
