The E-Bike Expo events are free to attend and there are no sales that happen at Expo events to keep them fun and informative. If you are interested in buying an electric bike, many of the exhibitors are offering discount coupons at the Expo that can be redeemed at local eBike dealers.
In addition to discounts there is the possibility of winning an electric bike!
Tempo Bicycles will be raffling off one of their Carmel or Santa Barbara hybrid electric bicycles worth $4,000 to a lucky winner.
The raffle proceeds will benefit local Chicago area charities. The raffle tickets are $5 each and can be purchased at the Expo.
