McLennan County is a county located on the Edwards Plateau in Central Texas. As of the 2010 census, its population was 234,906. Its county seat is Waco. The U.S. census 2017 county population estimate is 251,259.
The Cowboy ebike may usher in the next generation of electric bicycles:

Yawn. Another day, another "next generation". :roll: :lol:

Starts:
21st century cowboys aren’t riding around on horses. They’ve found ebikes instead. At least, that seems to be the hope of Belgian startup Cowboy, which is building a unique style of smart electronic bicycle. The Cowboy bike purports to be the new standard in ebikes, and unlike its compatriots and competitors, doesn’t actually look like an electronic piece of machinery. It just looks like a bike.

The Cowboy bike boasts a fully concealed 252 WH, key-secured battery in its seatpost (which means there’s no other bulky motor cramping its style), which can be charged in 2.5 hours. You’ll be able to keep tabs on how juiced up your bike is thanks to a display that is built into the Cowboy’s top tube. And because the battery weighs in at under four pounds, it doesn’t add any major heft to the craft. In fact, the whole bike weighs just 35 pounds.

ESB "Search found 9 matches: Hövding"... again:

Image
(They say:)
Eureka's unique blend of innovation, technology stories and engineering applications has made it the must read brand for design engineers and design management around the UK.

The Eureka group comprises a monthly publication, a community based web site, e-zines, live events, supplements, annuals and an annual Awards scheme. Eureka possesses the most up to date and in depth database of design engineering in the UK.
Many cyclists are rejecting cycling helmets, but Hövding is using sensors to provide a different solution:
http://www.eurekamagazine.co.uk/design- ... on/173335/

Starts:
As cycling becomes more popular, the number of accidents involving bikes on our roads increases. In 2016 in the UK there were 102 cyclist deaths, 3,397 serious injuries and nearly 15,000 more minor injuries. A high percentage of these involved head injuries.
Includes:
For this reason, Hövding, has been trying to offer an alternative since 2012 in the form of an airbag ‘helmet’.

First devised in 2005, Hövding’s cycling airbag is now in its second generation and has sold nearly 90,000 units worldwide.
... and:
Swedish insurance firm Folksam, also conducted tests into the airbag technology compared to traditional helmets. It found that in impact tests run at 25km/h conventional helmets achieved g-forces of 196-294 g, Hövding’s airbag achieved 65 g.
:shock:

... AND:
“Our initial model, the Hövding 1.0, hadn’t been programmed to read foldable or electric bikes. Since the release of our 2.0 model in 2012, this has been upgraded to include those two types of bike,” says Carling.

Five days a week, we bring you the news from Austin City Hall, Travis County Commissioners Court, and multiple other civic entities that make key decisions for central Texas. We stick to the facts. We aim to be fair. When we err, we correct it fast.
(Wiki:)
Austin is the capital of the U.S. state of Texas and the seat of Travis County, with portions extending into Hays and Williamson counties. It is the 11th-most populous city in the United States and the 4th-most populous city in Texas. It is the fastest growing large city in the United States, the second most populous state capital after Phoenix, Arizona, and the southernmost state capital in the contiguous 48 states. As of the Census Bureau's July 1, 2016 estimate, Austin had a population of 947,890, up from 790,491 at the 2010 census.
Are electric scooters eco-friendly? It depends on what they’re replacing:
https://www.austinmonitor.com/stories/2 ... replacing/

:roll:

Starts:
When electric scooters flooded into Austin, the companies that rent them touted their environmental benefits: “Riders were able to prevent 445,334 pounds of carbon emissions,” a press release from Bird said. The startup LimeBike estimated its scooters reduced 8,500 pounds of CO2 here in just two weeks.

But those numbers are based on some shaky assumptions.

"We all know that air quality and traffic are big problems here in Utah," Bowman said, "and so we want to give people options to do your part and help reduce air pollution here and get out of your car and onto a bike."

This is the drive behind the creation of U Bike Electric.

Electric Vehicles Present Unique Leak Testing Challenges
("Air-based and tracer gas detection systems ensure that all electric-vehicle battery components are leak-free"):
https://www.assemblymag.com/articles/94 ... challenges

Starts:
When most people think of leak testing, one childhood event probably comes to mind: Submerging a filled bicycle inner tube in a sink full of water, hoping to find the exact leak location by following a trail of air bubbles. This method of leak testing, known as bubble immersion (BI), is frequently used by manufacturers on parts that can be internally pressurized with air and not be damaged by water.

Inner tubes, flow meters, medical device packaging and many other products meet both of these test criteria. Lithium-ion batteries, however, do not. This is true regardless of their size, whether small enough to use in a cordless tool or snow blower, or large enough to power a plug-in hybrid or fully electric vehicle (EV).
Have you tested yer cells today? :)

Adding to the many remarkable benefits of cycling — reduced chances of cancer, heart disease, depression — a recent study now suggests it could also boost your immune system and slow down the aging process.

The results published in the journal Aging Cell, showed cyclists preserved muscle mass and strength in age, along with healthy levels of body fat and cholesterol. An added boost for men included high levels of testosterone.
Scientists behind the study also found the immune system in older riders were stimulated, producing as many T-cells (which normally decreases with age) as those of younger people.
Includes:
While turning back clock by pedalling sounds appealing, for some older folks, getting on a bicycle could be a challenge if they have mobility issues or ailments which prevent them from biking for long periods or distances.

This is where an e-bike would come in handy such as those from Opus, the Canadian company which designs and manufacture bicycles in Montreal.

(Wiki:)
The Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) is a medical center of health care, life sciences research and medical education institutions, co-located on 120 acres (49 ha) in Buffalo, New York. The BNMC was founded in 2001 by a consortium (including the University at Buffalo and Roswell Park Cancer Institute).
Buffalo’s Role in Bike Start-Up’s Uber Acquisition:
https://bnmc.org/buffalos-role-in-bike- ... quisition/
Congratulations to Jump Bikes! The BNMC is proud to be one of the local nonprofits that were early partners of the original Social Bikes, which is now joining Uber.

This week ride-hailing giant Uber announced its intention to purchase Jump Bikes, an electric bike start-up that has pioneered electric dockless bike sharing services in a deal that is rumored to be valued at between $100 and $200 million.

The BNMC, Shared Mobility Inc. (SMI), and other local partners were thrilled to hear the news since the nonprofits had worked with the organization in its very early days of developing the first public flexible bike sharing service.

The BNMC is proud to have partially funded the first city hub, as well as providing early support to SMI for a bikeshare business plan in 2011. In 2012, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) funded SMI with a $150,000 project to pilot and test the Brooklyn start-up Social Bicycles (now called Jump Bikes). As is the case today, the BNMC was interested in supporting social innovators, particularly those that offered a new business model and benefits for communities.

Starts:
OAKLAND TOWNSHIP — Seniors are among the most frequent users of electric bicycles, said Paint Creek Trail officials, who recently approved their use on the trail.

Most electric bike users are in “an older demographic that wants to get outside and get more exercise,” said Kristen Myers, Paint Creek Trail manager. “People who need a little bit of extra power to get out and enjoy nature more.”
:)

Includes:
The Paint Creek Trail Commission recently approved the use of Class 1 and 2 electric bicycles on the trail.

“We held a public hearing in March,” Myers said. “And we decided at the April 17 meeting to allow Class 1 and Class 2 for general use.”

Disabled cyclers are allowed to use all classes of electric bicycles, she said.

Copenhagen city’s bicycle sharing system hacked; 1,800 bikes affected:
https://www.hackread.com/copenhagen-cit ... em-hacked/

Starts:
You have heard about ride-sharing companies like Uber and Careem becoming victims of large-scale cyber attacks but now a bike sharing company has been hacked after falling for a damaging cyber attack.

The computer system responsible for controlling and managing operations of Denmark’s Copenhagen city’s bicycle sharing system “Bycyklen” was hacked over the weekend by unknown hackers with in-depth knowledge of how the system worked.

The hack attack affected around 1,860 bicycles by disrupting its service and not allowing riders to use the service between Friday and Saturday. According to Denish newspaper The Copenhagen Post, only 200 bicycles remained unaffected making it impossible for riders to find one during peak hours.

Bycyklen is a paid bicycle sharing system launched in April 2014 featuring electric bicycles equipped with a GPS routing device allowing users to book rides with their Android and iOS apps.

The Aspen Daily News is a 14,500-circulation (unaudited), 7-day-a-week newspaper in the ski resort of Aspen, Colorado that started in 1978.
... and:
Aspen is the home rule municipality that is the county seat and the most populous municipality of Pitkin County, Colorado, United States. Its population was 6,658 at the 2010 United States Census. Today the musicians and movie stars have been joined by corporate executives. As a result of this influx of wealth, Aspen has some of the most expensive real estate prices in the United States and many middle-class residents can no longer afford to live there.
County poised to end moratorium on e-bikes:
https://www.aspendailynews.com/news/cou ... 73733.html

Starts:
The Pitkin County commissioners today will likely approve, on first reading, an ordinance allowing the lowest-powered models of electric-assisted bikes on certain trails and implement a 20-mph speed limit where they can be used.

The move, which still needs to go through a final reading and public comment later this month, would rescind the county’s moratorium on e-bikes put in place in August and lift the prohibition specific to the county’s portion of the Rio Grande Trail that has been in place since 2011. Commissioners at a work session Tuesday indicated they support allowing class I e-bikes, which, unlike the class II and III models, require the rider to pedal and have a maximum speed of 20 mph.
Hehe... Baby steps... :lol:

Electric Bikes Are Taking Over The World As Gas Prices Go Up

Electric Bike sales grow as gas prices continue to be artificially inflated to increase profits to greedy fossil fuel corporations.

As fuel prices skyrocket at the pumps, the extreme risk to our environment from the extraction, shipping and use of fossil fuels grows worse. City traffic congestion continues to increase as available parking spots continue to decrease. The great news is that there’s a solution to all these issues! Electric bikes (also known as e-bikes and EBs) are a superb option for city commuters to consider.
