Sometimes Bicycling Can Be Electric
This morning I ambled over to the electric vehicle show in Tampa to check out the e-bikes. I'm a human-powered bicyclist myself, but I also believe in options for people who love to move on two wheels but might be too ailing to ride a bicycle via muscle power. Lots of retailers sell battery-powered bikes and retail power Trek is among the companies that offer e-bikes.
I caught up with my friend and fellow bicyclist Rob Keith, who did marketing and PR for the electric vehicle event and met event organizer Victor Juarez, who is pictured above riding the high-powered pedi-cab.
This folding e-moto bike was on sale for $799.
There's always a display with a conversion kit that was used on these bikes.
