Electric (bike) Inspiration

“I think it’s also true that when you learn to ride a bike to work, you never want to go back.” So says the creator of Faraday Bikes, Adam Vollmer. I would tend to agree. I would also recommend you watch this short film by Dark Rye about his inspiration to create a new electric bike, but more importantly, the inspiration that riding a bike (electric or otherwise) for transportation in a city can provide. And although it’s taken me some time to come to terms with electric bikes, I’ve grown to appreciate that they may be one of the best ways to bridge the gap between car transportation and bike transportation for many people. As Bike Tech Shop puts it, “An electric bike removes “if only” barriers.” Especially in places with big hills! But they sure are great for hauling cargo, as well. Anyhow, enjoy the video and Happy Friday.The Faraday Effect from Dark Rye on Vimeo.Via Velo Vogue
