Electric Pete's E-bikes gaining ground as bike lanes multiply in Akron:
https://www.cleveland.com/akron/index.s ... ining.html

Starts:
AKRON, Ohio - With designated bicycle lanes springing up across Akron, an increasing number of riders are kicking it up a notch and investing in electric bikes.

According to Pete Smakula, owner of Electric Pete's E-bikes in downtown Akron, business has been pretty busy the past few weeks. And he was just awarded an exclusive territory by Yamaha to sell its "power-assist bikes," which is a fancy name for e-bike.

Electric bikes look somewhat like regular, manual bikes, but they're larger and they weigh significantly more -- about 50 pounds, Smakula said. They cost a lot more too -- from $2,000-$5,000.
:mrgreen:

Fun article by By Jennifer Conn ("Akron reporter, cleveland.com")... :D

Oprah Winfrey once called San Luis Obispo the “happiest city in America,” and it’s probably true. The 150-mile Central Coast is home to remarkably selfless, giving people who have built an enviable atmosphere in which to work, live and raise families.

Located on the California coast midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo is a small college town with spectacular hiking trails and beaches. Secluded surf spots nestled along the coast and year-round beautiful weather make it one of the best kept secrets in the country. From whale watching, to wine tasting, to a tour of Hearst Castle, the Central Coast has it all.
(Wiki:)
San Luis Obispo, Spanish for St. Louis, the Bishop [of Toulouse]), or SLO, is a city in the U.S. state of California, located roughly midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the Central Coast. The population was 45,119 at the 2010 census. The population of San Luis Obispo County was 269,637 in 2010.

Founded in 1772 by Spanish Franciscan Junípero Serra, San Luis Obispo is one of California's oldest communities. Serra's original mission was named after the 13th-century saint and bishop Louis of Toulouse. The city, locally referred to as San Luis, SLO, or SLO Town (as its county is also referred to as SLO) is the county seat of San Luis Obispo County and is adjacent to California Polytechnic State University.
SLO County unveils new mobile Veterans Services office:
http://www.ksby.com/story/38544833/slo- ... ile-office
Starts:
The San Luis Obispo County Veterans Services Office unveiled its new mobile office this June.

The "office" is a full-service, solar-powered, electric-bicycle trailer. It's stocked with office equipment, outreach materials, and power supplies so staff can deliver services such as appointment scheduling and direct claims assistance.

WNYW, channel 5 (UHF digital channel 44), is the flagship station of Fox Television, licensed to New York City and serving the New York City metropolitan area.
With law clarified, NYC may soon see electric bike share:
http://www.fox5ny.com/news/nyc-electric-bike-share

Starts:
NEW YORK (FOX5NY.COM) - In less than a month, one might find 75-pound electric bicycles like the ones we encountered at JUMP Bikes headquarters in Brooklyn, Friday, cruising at 20 mph on this city's streets and available to rent (at $2 for 30 minutes and 7 cents a minute after that) from this city's bike racks.

"We find our riders actually go two and a half or more miles on average per trip," JUMP Vice President of Marketing Rikin Diwan said.
... Hehe... while ignoring sales at NYC Bikes... watt may be "exploding" this summer (batteries excluded...):

The Bulletin is the daily newspaper of Bend, Oregon, United States.
... and:
Bend is a city in, and the county seat of, Deschutes County, Oregon, United States. It is the principal city of the Bend, Oregon, Metropolitan Statistical Area. Bend is Central Oregon's largest city, and despite its modest size, is the de facto metropolis of the region, owing to the low population density of that area. Bend recorded a population of 76,693 at the time of the 2010 U.S. Census, up from 52,029 at the 2000 census. The estimated population of the city as of 2016 is 91,122. Bend's metro population was estimated at 165,954 as of July 1, 2013.
Bend Cycle Pub going strong (if not fast)
("In its 7th year, Cycle Pub rolls, squeals, onward"):
https://www.bendbulletin.com/lifestyle/ ... -ps-and-qs

Starts:
Darla Knudsen and several family members were spinning bicycle pedals while rolling through Bend on a recent sunny afternoon. After a slight uphill climb, the relatives coasted while they clinked plastic cups of blackberry cider.

“Drinking, working out — my style,” said Jessica Kelly, wearing sunglasses and a broad grin. She and her husband, Bryan Kelly, both Sisters residents, were showing their out-of-town extended family Cycle Pub, the roving party vehicle that is powered by legs and alcohol (and steered by an abstaining tour guide).
Includes:
This spring, Watts added the electric Tuk & Roll, a six-passenger, three-wheel taxi, modeled after the motorized rickshaw cabs called tuk-tuks, popular in parts of Asia.

But Cycle Pub is Watts’s bread and butter.
Hehe...:

Book An E-Cruiser Tour!
eCruiser tours are brought to you by The Bend Tour Company, one of the great businesses at the tour center where all Cycle Pub tours launch from. Their outings are a unique way to simply explore town, travel the classic Bend Ale Trail, discover the local art scene or just take in the beautiful sights of Bend. The eCruiser is not only a terrific choice for a more passive way to get around but with seating for up to 5 guests this all-electric touring vehicle is another great eco-friendly option too!

Electric Scooter Startup Spin Seeks $125 Million In ‘Security Token Offering’:
https://www.ccn.com/electric-scooter-st ... -offering/

Starts:
An electric scooter startup called Spin is trying to raise close to $125 million in what’s called a security token offering (STO), which sells tokens backed by real-world financial instruments, according to Axios and confirmed by TechCrunch.

The STO marks a new phase in funding following initial coin offerings, TechCrunch observed. STOs provide more security than ICOs since investors can purchase tokens backed by real-world financial assets. STOs, according to Axios, are “explicit securities” and not utilities.

Investors To Receive Company Revenue

Spin, which has already raised $8 million, according to TechCrunch, plans to raise funds from accredited investors who will receive revenue from the electric scooter business, according to an unnamed source.

Controversial scooter service LimeBike looks for a lane in Toronto:
https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/ ... n-toronto/

Starts:
One of the companies behind a proliferation of rentable electric scooters that has led to protests and legal threats in some U.S. cities is setting up shop in Toronto, trying to bring the controversial idea across the border for the first time.

LimeBike has posted job openings for senior staff to run a Toronto expansion and has been making the rounds to lobby city councillors. The firm wants to begin operations here as soon as possible, according to one of the politicians who spoke with its representatives, but their reception at city hall has been tempered by caution.
Will fears and ignorance rule? Stay tuned to ES Newz... :wink:

Harley Is Moving To Bicycles Since Millennials Aren’t Buying Motorcycles:
https://powernationtv.com/post/harley-i ... otorcycles

Starts:
It’s been a rough past few years for Harley-Davidson. So the company’s decided to head in another direction hoping that it will attract the younger generation it’s been hoping to reach.

Harley is going back to bicycles, as in powered by pedals not motors. Guess they’re hoping for a nostalgia kick with this one. The last time Harley was in the actual bicycle business was 1922. And now Heritage Bicycles will be available this summer for a whopping $4,000.
Hehe... Wait'll they see the ES Modified versions... :lol:

Westfair Business Publications (Westfair), a privately held publishing firm located in White Plains, NY, publishes three successful weekly local business newspapers: Westchester County Business Journal, Fairfield County Business Journal, and HV BIZ (Hudson Valley Business).
(Wiki:)
Westchester County is a county in the U.S. state of New York. It is the second-most populous county on the mainland of New York, after the Bronx, and the most populous county in the state north of New York City. According to the 2010 Census, the county had a population of 949,113, estimated to have increased by 3.3% to 980,244 by 2017. Situated in the Hudson Valley, Westchester covers an area of 450 square miles (1,200 km2), consisting of six cities, 19 towns, and 23 villages. Established in 1683, Westchester was named after the city of Chester, England. The county seat is the city of White Plains, while the most populous municipality in the county is the city of Yonkers, with an estimated 200,807 residents in 2016.
Pedal peddlers: Meet the companies bringing dockless bike sharing to Westchester:
https://westfaironline.com/104230/pedal ... stchester/

Starts:
As the lime green and yellow bicycles that dot streets in White Plains and Yonkers attest, bike sharing in Westchester County shifted into high gear quickly.

The county entered 2018 with a grand total of zero bicycles available through organized share programs. By June, there were more than 1,000 total bikes spread across separate programs in Yonkers, White Plains and New Rochelle.

First was New Rochelle, which partnered with P3 Global Management to launch Westchester’s first bike-share program in May. New Rochelle’s is a docked bike share program, similar to Citi Bike in New York City. Two weeks later, Yonkers launched a “dockless” program, a model that White Plains followed in its launch at the beginning of June.
Includes:
Both companies also have warning systems designed to deter people from leaving bicycles outside of the company’s operating zone.

Meanwhile, the future of dockless transportation is already moving beyond pedal bikes to include a mix of other transportation modes, such as electric scooters and electric bikes. In May, Lime dropped the bike from its initial “LimeBike” name.

Electric bicycles power up bike industry:
http://www.redrocknews.com/sports/81784 ... e-industry

Hehe... URL under "sports"... :lol:

Includes:
For years, cyclists have modified their two-wheeled modes of transportation with various types of motors that assist in propulsion. What has changed, though, is that big-name bicycle companies in the mountain biking industry specifically, like Specialized, have begun to dive into the market.

Wesley explained that in order for companies to be able to sell any of their products in foreign markets, they must manufacture and sell e-bikes as well. Pivot Cycles, based out of Tempe, is one example of a company that has begun pushing into the market. Wesley added that the United States is well behind other countries when it comes to e-bikes.

Alexandria Living Magazine, the only lifestyle publication for the Alexandria region, launched its website Jan. 16, 2018 with a bi-monthly print edition to follow later in 2018.

Alexandria Living Magazine aims to showcase the individuals, ebikes, places, businesses, events and issues affecting the dynamic and growing City of Alexandria and surrounding neighborhoods.
(Wiki:)
Alexandria is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 139,966, and in 2016, the population was estimated to be 155,810. Located along the western bank of the Potomac River, Alexandria is approximately 7 miles (11 km) south of downtown Washington, D.C.

Like the rest of Northern Virginia, as well as Central Maryland, modern Alexandria has been influenced by its proximity to the U.S. capital. It is largely populated by professionals working in the federal civil service, in the U.S. military, or for one of the many private companies which contract to provide services to the federal government. One of Alexandria's largest employers is the U.S. Department of Defense. Another is the Institute for Defense Analyses. In 2005, the United States Patent and Trademark Office moved to Alexandria, and in 2017, so did the headquarters of the National Science Foundation.
In other words, watt some folks in Toronto might term a "bedroom community". :wink:

Dockless Bikes Show Up in Alexandria
("Alexandria residents are divided over dockless bicycle sharing as a pilot program in Washington, DC continues."):
https://alexandrialivingmagazine.com/ne ... lexandria/

Starts:
A resident on East Bellefont Avenue in Del Ray posted to a neighborhood listserv in June: “Have had a bright orange Mobike/bike share dropped in front of our house for a few days, any idea how to get Mobike to get rid of it? I have been all over their website, I'm not downloading the APP, and have sent them a Facebook message with no reply, a dumpster is starting to look like a valid option.”
Includes:
In Alexandria, only Capital Bikeshare is authorized to operate. Riders are allowed to check out a bicycle from an electronic bicycle rack, and return it to another Capital Bikeshare rack at the end of their ride.
So, in Alexandria, some bikes are "electronic". 8)

... and:
The five dockless bikeshare companies operating in the District under the pilot program are Mobike, Jump, Spin and Ofo. LimeBike offers both bicycles and electric scooters. Other electric scooter companies in the pilot program are Waybots and Bird.

Dockless in Alexandria

“Companies have not been granted any sort of permit to operate, or restriction from operating, in the City of Alexandria,” wrote Darren Buck in an email Friday to Alexandria Living Magazine. Buck is Complete Streets Program Manager in Transportation Planning at Alexandria’s Department of Transportation & Environmental Services.


:lol: Hehe... NO "restriction from operating"... :mrgreen:

WIRED is the magazine about what's next – bringing you the people, the trends and the big ideas that will change our lives.

Each month, through thought-provoking features and stunning photography, we explore the next big ideas in science, culture, business – wherever innovation and new thinking are reshaping our world.

Since the US edition of WIRED launched in 1993, the magazine has been synonymous with informed and intelligent analysis, and a consistently reliable predictor of change.

The UK edition, launched in April 2009, is similarly committed to bringing you the best writers and photographers; compelling long-form journalism; extraordinary photography and design; and the people, products and ideas that matter.
The electric scooter craze isn’t coming to London anytime soon
("Scooter-rental companies are expanding in the US and Europe, but unless the Department for Transport changes its rules, they'll never come to the UK"):
http://www.wired.co.uk/article/electric ... -bird-spin

Starts:
For a brief few months this spring, the streets of San Francisco were riddled with electric scooters. Riding a wave of venture capital, scooter-sharing companies descended upon the city en masse and the sight of startup employees gliding past gridlocked traffic on tiny scooters became commonplace, as did complaints about abandoned scooters clogging up pavements.

Early this June the city struck back, kicking out some of the scooter companies and putting in place a permit system to limit the number of scooters in the city to 1,250. But this hasn’t deterred the firms involved from scooting ahead and bringing tiny, two-wheeled transport to cities across the globe. On June 21, Lime – a scooter-sharing firm worth a reported $2 billion (£1.5 bn) – launched its service in Paris. It also operates in Berlin, Bremen, Frankfurt and Zurich.

“Scooters have been a hit with consumers,” says Euwyn Poon, co-founder of Spin, a scooter-sharing company that operates in 18 US cities and has a fleet of 30,000 vehicles. After starting as a bike-sharing company, Poon pivoted to scooters in March last year. “They’re a bit more nimble and take up less space on the street,” he says, and cities are starting to catch on to the idea that they could be a cleaner, more convenient alternative to driving or taking public transport.
NEVer start stuff off with an apology. :wink:

Tray Graham’s vehicle for getting around town might once have passed for a kid’s toy. Instead, it’s part of a whirring wave challenging views about urban transportation in Atlanta.

“It’s very addictive, and it gets you where you want to be,” Graham said after a ride on his rented stand-up electric scooter, a contraption that’s making city politicians fret and urban planners dream.
Includes:
Then came Muving Ecosystem, based in Spain, which made Atlanta its U.S. base and the first American market for its yellow rental mopeds similar to Vespas. They require operators to have drivers’ licenses and to wear provided helmets. The company said it may add three-wheel electric vehicles later this year.

E-bikes become a key transportation equipment export for Taiwan:
http://focustaiwan.tw/news/aeco/201807010015.aspx

Starts:
Taipei, July 1 (CNA) The total value of Taiwan’s electric bicycle exports in the first five months of this year increased 54 percent year-on-year, the highest ever in that time period, according to the Ministry of Finance.

The ministry’s statistics also show that the export value of e-bikes last year was US$250 million, 17 times higher than the US$14 million registered in 2012.

Europe is Taiwan’s biggest market for e-bikes, accounting for 68 percent of total exports, followed by the Unites States at 22 percent, the ministry said, attributing the rise in exports to the surge in popularity of e-bikes in those markets.

The climb involves 1,400m of vertical gain in around 15km, and is mostly 10–12 percent, with stretches at up to 18 percent. Apparently the Tour de Suisse organisers say it’s the hardest climb in Switzerland, and you’d think they have plenty to choose from…

Let’s Talk About All Those Electric Scooters
("Little vehicles are changing the landscape of urban transit as cities struggle with how to regulate the fast-moving technology."):
https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles ... sportation

Starts:
In less than a year, a group of fast-growing electric scooter and electric bicycle companies have stocked U.S. city streets with lightweight, dockless, connected vehicles. To some, they're a tech bro nuisance and yet another manifestation of Silicon Valley overreach; to others, a brand-new method of urban transit for the first, last or only miles of daily travel. Bloomberg Opinion’s Virginia Postrel and Nathaniel Bullard corresponded via email on the electric scooter craze; this is a lightly edited version of that conversation.
Ends:
VP: I think you underestimate the appeal of personalized transportation, whatever the type. There’s a reason I prefer to walk rather than take the bus. But we can leave it at that.
