“Shift to E-Bikes” is a free online workshop that covers all the basics about electric bicycles. Taking place online using Zoom, there will be two opportunities to attend: April 22 and May 4 from 7 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.
Have you been thinking about buying an e-bike, but have questions about battery range, speed capabilities, cargo-carrying options, or how e-bikes operate? Then this is the event for you! Presented by knowledgeable local experts, this workshop is a great way to become more familiar with the world of e-bikes. Topics the workshop will cover include:
- Different types of e-bikes (throttle vs assist)
- The benefits of owning an e-bike
- Key considerations when shopping for an e-bike
- Rules of the road when operating an e-bike (where can you ride, and at what speed)
Participants will qualify for a discount ($50 off an e-bike that costs less than $2000, $150 off an e-bike that costs $2000 or more) at participating local retailers. Registration is required.
