One Spark ignites ideas, fuels innovation


    It might not be like re-inventing the wheel, but Clayton Emory Smith and his family have designed and built what they believe is a better beach bicycle.

    The Jacksonville entrepreneurs showcased the new Emory C4 Cruiser to an appreciative audience Saturday during One Spark 2018, a two-day festival billed “The World’s Largest Idea Fest.”

    The Smith family, who’ve been in the bicycle business since the 1940s, were among 67 creators from throughout the nation who converged on Daily’s Place amphitheater adjacent to EverBank Field to share their innovations and ideas at the event that concluded Saturday night.
