The best way to convince policymakers that bikes really can be practical and efficient transportation as well as a fun way to get around is to bring them out for a test ride. That’s especially true with e-bikes, as we discovered at our successful electric bike demo at the Air Resources Board back in June. So we planned another one at the Capitol in Sacramento for August 18.
This event helps to answer many questions we receive from policy makers, such as “What is an e-bike?” and “Can we really get people to ride a bike for transportation?” The August 18th demo will run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Capitol Street traffic circle between 9th and 10th Streets on the west side of the Capitol building and right in front of the State Transportation Agency. If you’re in downtown Sacramento that day come test ride an e-bike!
Following the demo, we will be holding a reception and raffling off an e-bike at the Courtyard, 1522 14th Street, from 5 to 7 p.m. We would love to see you at both events!
