The Electric Bike Report Mission
We are very enthusiastic about electric bikes and the potential for them to enable many people to enjoy riding a bike for transportation and recreation.
The primary goal of Electric Bike Report is to get the word out about electric bikes and all of their benefits through news, extensive e-bike testing and reviews, rider stories, guides, etc.

Griffin Hales – Marketing Operations Manager, Product Reviewer, Content Writer
Griffin was a casual bike rider until riding his first E-Bike in 2019 when he instantly became hooked. Now he has logged several thousand miles on over a hundred e-bikes. Thanks to the warm climate, he loves being able to ride year-round and test all kinds of e-bikes on the diverse terrain offered in Southern Utah. Griffin proudly keeps the Average Joe perspective as he remembers being so new to e-bikes a few short years ago. He too asked a lot of the same questions many of you have: “why are hydraulic brakes better?”, “how important is motor wattage?”, and the classic first-time experience of “how exactly do you start this thing?”
Griffin enjoys keeping up with the latest trends in tech, energy, and spending time with his wife, two kids, and two dogs.
John S. Bozick – Product Reviewer, Content Writer
As a teenager, John spent a fair amount of time riding a BMX bike around his hometown in Ohio. He quit pedaling for a few years while pursuing an art degree and working in the field of design, but like many people, picked it back up again during the pandemic in 2020. John attributes his relative degree of sanity to the time he spent riding along the bike paths of the metropolitan Phoenix area.
Now, in southwestern Utah, John has combined a lifelong talent and passion for writing, an ever-present affinity for technology, and a reinvigorated love of bikes here at EBR. John hopes that his reviews will help others to make informed purchases of products that are better for their personal health and that of the planet.
Outside of work, John enjoys hiking, gaming, cooking, and creating.
Forrest Woolman – Product Reviewer, Content Writer
As an aspiring young writer, one of his first articles was about how he and other local kids built a 5-foot by 15-foot ramp for jumping their BMX bikes over a mud pit in his neighborhood. Forrest and his friends used the article to promote a competition event, where they sold front row seats — using borrowed beach chairs — at five cents a seat. In essence, Forrest earned his first writing gig before middle school. He continued to write in high school and college before settling in the business world, writing about more mundane topics like human resource data analysis and employee performance reviews.
When the EBR team invited Forrest to join them, he was happy to incorporate his decades of bicycle and motorcycle experience in testing and writing about electric bicycles. Analyzing bikes from the perspective of a longtime rider, consumer and a certified bicycle mechanic (trained by the United Bicycle Institute), Forrest gives his honest take on the pros and cons of the bikes he tests and writes about, so readers can get an accurate description before purchasing their e-bike. In his spare time, he often rides with his wife, Vicki. And when he’s not on two wheels, he is usually hiking with dogs, playing drums, bass or keyboards, writing fiction, or planning the preparation and execution of becoming the first person to ride an e-bike from Alaska to Argentina — viajes seguros!
