Like so many products, Clean MyRide saw it’s genesis from not being able to find something that perfectly filled a need.
Paul Taylor and business partner Steve Howard are both keen motorcyclists and cyclists. Over time, they had collected a garage full of half used bottles. They found products were very good at fulfilling particular stages of the vehicle cleaning process, but often only usable on particular surfaces and not always environmentally friendly.
The idea evolved from here, could they create a combined Bike Wash and Degreaser that was safe on all surfaces, worked phenomenally well, was environmentally friendly and biodegradable? Of course, it helps having access to the family chemical business specialising in industrial sorbent and absorbent cleaning products!
The initial formula was slowly developed and the last 12 months prior to launch saw Paul and Steve bench test a range of different formulas solving their personal issues with other products. Clean MyRide was finally ready and soft launched at the end of July 2017 at an Advanced Motorcyclists Group. From launch they have been promoting the product at shows, using word of mouth, social media and customer feedback grow their brand and products.
So what goes into Clean MyRide? Paul laughed and said “It’s British, from formula to finished product. That’s about all we can tell you though, any more and we would have to gag you with legal paperwork, lawyers and Non Disclosure Agreements! All we can say though is the magic is in the chemistry and we are indebted to our customers’ for their loyalty, feedback and continuing support.”
