Electric assist bicycles, or ebikes, are growing in popularity because it makes it easier to ride farther and faster with less effort. Battery and motor technology are rapidly evolving and versions have been introduced into bike share systems like Divvy and more and more people are purchasing their own ebikes as a way to get around. We will learn what is an ebike, the various classes, legal status, technologies, the advantages and disadvantages, and if it is, as some cyclists think, cheating. Our speaker is Sharon Kaminecki, owner of Earth Rider and an ebike enthusiast. This webinar is free and all are welcome. Please RSVP with Ride Illinois by clicking here.
