Electric bikes are big news these days. Initially, the cycling industry held them with a little distrust, but growing sales suggest an undeniable demand, and more and more brands are getting on board.
The growth is demonstrated by the fact that the upcoming Cycle Show in Birmingham’s NEC centre will be hosting the largest ever eBike village to be on display at a cycling trade show. No fewer than 27 brands will be exhibiting new electric bike options.
Event director Chris Holman said: “There has been a huge uptake in people riding eBikes, both in the UK and abroad. The Cycle Show brings the biggest brands in the industry together so that visitors can find out more about the benefits of e-bikes, test them and also be advised on how to choose the right one for the right purpose.”
Brands exhibiting eBikes include well know mainstream brands, such as Cube and Raleigh.
The Cycle Show are taking electric bikes seriously – and why shouldn’t they – with well over 100 powered bikes on display?
They’ve built a 700m loop specifically for testing the bikes, which will include a 30m ramp so people can check out their new found assisted climbing abilities.
