E-Bike Fans Will Gather to Celebrate Enhanced Means of Riding Two Wheels
An increasingly popular mode of two-wheeled transportation is enhancing the Davidson area’s reputation as a “bicycle friendly” community. The innovation is motorized bicycling. Putting a small motor on a bike permits a rider to expend far less energy in pedaling than traditional bicycles.
E-bikes, as they are called, come in many configurations and capabilities. A Davidson afficianado, Bill Giduz, is inviting all e-bikers in the area to share their love of e-bikes at the first-ever e-bike showcase. The event sill be held Sunday, September 29 from 3:00 until 5:00 p.m. on the Davidson Town Green. (NOTE NEW TIME!) Attendees will have an opportunity to describe their e-bikes and talk about their experiences. Spirited Cyclist bike shop in Davidson will provide demo e-bikes on site for people to test ride. As well as attracting people who already own e-bikes, the showcase welcomes those who are only considering an e-bike purchase.
The gathering will conclude with a 5-k leisurely group e-bike ride through town.
For more information, contact Giduz at his email or 704-609-1077.
In a recent New York Times article about e-bikes, writer Jennifer Finney Boylan declared “e-bikes are taking over the cycling world…The battery silently doubles the amount of power provided by your muscles to the wheels.” In the same article, the CEO of Jump Bikes said, “It’s been life altering, not just making me fitter, but also raising my spirits. When people first jump on an e-bike, their face lights up.”
