Like some other towns in Oregon, Bend has a lot of bikepaths and bike routes that many people (locals and tourists) use to get around town.  In addition, (more…)

This is a guest “adventure” post from Jane and Carolyn.

This is an article to excite e-bikers to plan a multi-day trip in some fantastic locations and to thank Pete for his generosity in loaning us two e-bikes for an afternoon in Sedona, Arizona.

We had wanted to try out an e-bike on a multi-day trip ever since our city bike tour in Copenhagen in 2011.  It was only a 4 hour tour and more significantly we only rode on flat ground.  To find out how e-bikes would ride in hilly terrain, we contacted Pete.

He was most gracious and offered to have us come to Sedona to see what it was like to ride an e-bike on steep terrain.

Thanks to Pete’s encouragement and our excitement, we set out on some wonderful adventures. (more…)

Recently I have come across a number of electric recumbent trikes and this seems to be a growing part of the electric bike or light electric vehicle world.

Some of these e-recumbent trikes are designed for everyday commuting and some of them are high performance “adventure vehicles”.

It is interesting how some of these 3 wheeled pedal/electric vehicles are beginning to offer some car like features.

The following are some complete e-trikes, along with ideas on how to add electric assist to a recumbent trike. (more…)
