You’ve heard the hype, but may still be wondering … why? And you may be curious as to just how they work. We’re here to clue you in on all the details about this life-changing revolution in cycling. We’re super excited about e-bikes and we think you will be, too!

Why we think e-bikes are the bomb

  • Enjoy going uphill. An e-bike takes the hassle out of the ride so good times are all that’s left.

  • You’ll get there faster. You can explore more in less time.

  • You won’t sweat the commute: Beat the traffic and show up to work looking fresh and ready for the day. It’s a sweat-free ride. (Of course, you always have the option to sweat if you prefer – get your workout enroute to work!)

  • It’s a clean solution for a messy world: No emissions. No parking fees. No gridlock. No fill-ups. Simply a clean and convenient ride.

  • E-bikes level the playing field in group rides, allowing for families and other groups with differing skill/fitness/health levels to ride together.

Doesn’t all that sound great? !!

What type of e-bikes are there?

E-bikes come in a variety of options for whatever your preferred riding style is.

Off Road: Big day off road? You can go farther and have more fun with an electric mountain bike – its pedal-assist technology will make those climbs a bit easier while you still enjoy a motor-free descent.

On Road: Looking for a better way to get around town? Go car-free with a wide variety of electric commuter bikes. Use power when you need it, pedals when you don’t … making your commute as long or short as you like depending on how much leg work you’re willing to put in.

Hybrid: Why choose between road and trail? Trek Bicycles offers their Dual Sport+ which is built for adventure on or off the road, ready to take you from week to weekend and back in comfortable, confident style. It’s the ultimate hybrid: part refined city bike, part adventurous trail ride.
