PostNL : replaces car rides with electric carrier bikes in Utrecht:
http://www.4-traders.com/POSTNL-8070432 ... -26870356/

Starts:
560 green delivery kilometres in Utrecht every day

PostNL has opted for the electric carrier bike, as the company intends to green its transport movements. The electric carrier bike is emission-free and often faster than cars in busy city centres. By deploying electric carrier bikes, PostNL is replacing 20 car rides every day. This means 560 emission-free delivery kilometres a day, and a CO² emission reduction of approximately 35,000 kg per year. A special transfer location has been created in the Utrecht city centre, from which deliveries are made.

New Era for Bike-Share in New York: Dockless and Electric Bikes:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/03/nyre ... kless.html

Starts:
Citi Bike has been the only bike-share option in New York City for the last five years.

The bright blue bikes were seemingly everywhere in parts of Manhattan. Then they started to appear near the waterfront in Brooklyn and Queens.

A new era of bike-share is beginning: dockless and electric bikes, spreading to the Bronx and Staten Island, where leaders have long complained about being left off the Citi Bike map.
8)

Goes on:
After a sudden craze for electric scooters on the West Coast, New York is dipping its toe into the electric bike phenomenon with a pilot program to offer dockless bikes in three neighborhoods this summer, city leaders announced on Tuesday.

A company called Jump Bikes will offer dockless electric bikes that give riders a boost when they pedal, topping out at 20 miles per hour.

Car Art with Will Forrestall:
https://nouzie.com/car-art-with-will-forrestall/

Starts:
Parkland Residents Tommy Jellinek and Michael Miller enjoyed a motorized bicycle built for two on Thursday June 14 with car creator William Forrestall looking on. The event took place in underground parking as it was a rainy blustery day.

Many people recognize William Forrestall( son of Tom) as an accomplished painter. His signature work consists of subtle egg tempera paintings of quiet classical still-life arrangements, images of everyday inanimate objects which hang in prestigious galleries around the globe. But Forrestall has a private passion for home built pedal and electric cars which are in stark contrast to his paintings. Fusing do-it-yourself mechanical know-how with a creative use of salvaged materials they are designed to function as machines that one can actually operate. They are also environmentally friendly and fun! Parkland Fredericton residents and their friends were delighted to have a free public exhibition and ride on his whimsical workable creations.

A raffle for a new electric bicycle was held during the Nevada City Classic.

The raffle was organized by J. Michael Badgwell, M.D., to raise funds to help the family of Addison Haller with the cost of her scoliosis treatments. Thank you to all who purchased tickets and helped with this fundraiser!

The winner of the bicycle was Scott Yach from Rocklin, who purchased a ticket when he was in town shopping at My Favorite Things. He was excited to win and said that he was happy to support the cause since his mother had scoliosis.

The Bailiwick Express (www.bailiwickexpress.com) is Jersey's solitary online newspaper which concentrates on hard news delivered swiftly, and is supported by classified advertising, primarily of vehicles, employment vacancies, and property.
... and:
The Channel Islands are an archipelago in the English Channel, off the French coast of Normandy. They include two Crown dependencies: the Bailiwick of Jersey, which is the largest of the islands; and the Bailiwick of Guernsey, consisting of Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and some smaller islands. They are considered the remnants of the Duchy of Normandy and, although they are not part of the United Kingdom, the UK is responsible for the defence and international relations of the islands. The Crown dependencies are not members of the Commonwealth of Nations or of the European Union. They have a total population of about 164,541, and the bailiwicks' capitals, Saint Helier and Saint Peter Port, have populations of 33,500 and 16,488, respectively. The total area of the islands is 198 km2.
... AND:
Sark is one of the few remaining places in the world where cars are banned from roads and only tractors and horse-drawn vehicles are allowed.
Electric bikes could be legalised in Sark: :shock:
https://gsy.bailiwickexpress.com/gsy/ne ... zyJ_Lona1g
After an aborted attempt to legalise all electric vehicles in Sark, the island may now look at allowing electric bicycles along side invalid carriages.

At today's Chief Pleas meeting, Conseillers will be asked to approve plans for the Road Traffic Committee to undertake "appropriate consultation with the residents of Sark on the subject of the possible deregulation of electric bicycles on Sark roads."

Led by Conseiller Anthony Dunks, the Road Traffic Committee wants to find out how Sark residents feel about allowing electric bikes in the island.

In its original policy letter, lodged earlier this year ahead of the Easter meeting of Chief Pleas in April, the RTC said it had been approached by a number of Sark residents asking if it would look at the possible deregulation of electric cycles. The Committee said when it considered that matter it agreed the time was right and that the Law should be looked at, and it was further decided to consult with Sark residents before anything happened to find out if there was a wider appetite for change to Sark's laws governing vehicles.

Electric Bicycle Distance and Renatl Cost:
https://www.tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g1 ... lands.html
How far can an electric bicycle go without pedaling? What is the rental cost per day?
One answer so far:
0 km without pedaling yourself. Law requires that that can only assist you when you pedal yourself, else an insurance would be required.

The range of an electric bike depends on the battery size, the amount of support you require, your driving speed, use in flat area's or on hills and your weight. Generally spoken this is somewhere between 60 and 90 km for rental bikes.

Rental prices have been given in the previous comment.

PPK purchases e-bikes for rental service
("… But where do they belong?"):
http://passherald.ca/archives/180704/index1.htm

Starts:
E-bikes have been around for several decades, but it's only in recent years that these convenient electric bicycles powered by a small motor have gained popularity, particularly among outdoor recreationists, people with mobility issues and the elderly population alike.

The Pass Powderkeg Ski Society has recently invested $10,000 to purchase five e-bikes, extra parts and accessories as a new recreational service they will offer. The 2018 RadRover Electric Fat Bikes arrived at the beginning of June 2018 and can now be rented out from the Crowsnest Community Pool.

The Society sees this as an economic development opportunity with twofold benefits, attracting visitors to the area and promoting an active lifestyle.

Through many different forward-looking sessions during Velo-city 2018, we discussed how new technologies influence the future of cycling.

During the first day of Velo-city 2018 we focused on low tech solutions that still remain unexplored, presenting visionary projects from different cities. The second day featured our stimulating technology plenary, where we explored how new technologies could revolutionize mobility in the next few years, as well as the relevance of 200-year old technology like cycling. Global leaders in the field discussed some of the emerging challenges for governance, cities and advocates as new technologies go live.

TODAY, the first major Singapore newspaper to make a full mobile-first transition.

On September 30 2017, TODAY went fully digital, some 17 years after its birth as Singapore's first free commuter newspaper. In that time, it grew to become the country's second most-read newspaper, winning over readers with its unrivalled package of top local and international news reports, as well as insightful, thought-provoking commentary and analysis.
... and:
Nov 2016 Bucking the trend of declining readership among newspapers, TODAY increased its readership by 19,000 to 548,000 compared to the previous year.

Are Electric Mountain Bikes Ruining Trail Systems?: :roll:
https://gearpatrol.com/2018/07/05/are-e ... kes-legal/

Starts:
There was a time when mountain bikers were the “drunk uncle” at the outdoor buffet: socially awkward, irreverent, “too noisy, too fast,” outcasts on the dusty lam. Hikers called them out for harshing the trail’s mellow. Conservationists pegged bikes as trail wreckers. Decades later, the once rogue group of trail punks have grown up, are wiser, savvy, and organized. The International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) has emptied countless tubs of elbow grease advocating for social and physical space on the trails to ensure we have places to ride.

But here we are again. Same story, new bikes. This time weighing the validity of electric-assist bikes on the very same trail systems. The most hesitant to accept electric-assist mountain bikes? Their own breed, mountain bikers.
:roll: :cry: :evil: :mrgreen:

Includes:
And e-bikes are the fastest growing sector in the bike market — an industry that was valued at over $800 million in 2017, and has a predicted 6% growth each year through at least 2025. With Specialized, Trek and BMC clearly in the game, a flood of e-bikes is being released into the market. Riders are looking for paydirt. So you might think all these new riders would equate to more power through voices in trail advocacy and be welcomed with open arms by IMBA, who’ve tirelessly worked to educate the public about mountain bikes and preserve trail space. But you’d be wrong.

“First and foremost, we advocate for access for traditional, non-motorized mountain bikes. IMBA does not advocate for access for e-MTBs,” stated IMBA Executive Director, Dave Wien’s, in the IMBA’s position statement. While the IMBA has warmed up to the idea of Class 1, pedal assisted e-MTBs on non-motorized trails, by and large, they’ve stayed out of the fray and left the access discussion to local land managers and bike clubs. The IMBA’s primary concern? Protecting their hard-fought trails from being taken away and preventing the slippery slope of motorcycles getting back onto the quiet trail system.

Electrification will "exterminate" high-end MTB market within eight years: :mrgreen:
("Turner Bicycles founder David Turner predicts demise of pedal-powered XC MTBs"):
https://www.bikebiz.com/business/emtbs- ... inate-mtbs

Image

Starts:
US industry veteran David Turner believes electric mountain bikes have the potential to smother and kill sales of pedal-power-only MTBs.

At the recent Impact Media Summit held in Idaho, he said that the high-end mountain bike industry would be finished within eight years.

"It will be exterminated by the electric mountain bike because there's no logical reason why somebody's gonna walk into a [local bike] retailer and say 'you know, I have five thousand quid six and I'm gonna buy a nice new [non-electric mountain] bike,'" he said.
8) Although, suspect Turner "being too generous" in his estimate that vintage/antique/retro/etc pedal-only Poop-Mobiles will actually last as long as eight years. :mrgreen:

Boston-bound bike company switches gear, opts for scooter rentals

Starts:
The company that only a few months ago signed a deal to bring dockless bike-rentals to neighboring communities around Boston now is getting out of the bicycle business.

San Francisco-based Spin will instead focus on the newest wheeled phenomenon hitting cities—electric scooters.
Includes:
“As a company we are shifting our focus away from bikes to electric scooters,” Spin co-founder Euwyn Poon said in an email. “We have seen 10 to 20 times higher demand for our scooters than our bikes. Electric scooters have a lower barrier of entry, they’re even easier to use and get around on, and they’re extremely fun.”
