The SunPedal Ride is a project to raise awareness towards increasing the use of electric mobility and solar energy – a sustainability initiative.
This project was started by Sushil Reddy, who held a Guinness World Record for the longest journey on an electric bike in India in 2016.
The idea of this project was born with the motivation to raise awareness among the people in India about clean energy and transportation ensuring sustainability.
The project involves impact and outreach driven tours on solar powered electric bikes across the world while interacting with people throughout the journey.
During his rides, Sushil encourages people to use renewable energy, highlights the importance of sustainable solar energy and electric transportation, including global trends of solar energy, and how people can integrate solar energy into their lives.
This is a quiz. What’s the biggest constraint for an e-bike? The answer is its battery.
Clearly if you’re off for a long day’s ride you can’t count on finding a convenient wall outlet to use your charger. Besides, who wants to carry that thing anyway?
But what if you could harness solar power, and do your recharging in a reasonable amount of time so you can get back on the road? Well, that’s the solution that Hi-Power Cycles of Chatsworth, California has come up with.
Wow! The nCycle is a new futuristic electric bike design concept that features a holographic display, smartphone integration, Bluetooth speakers, a unique integrated lock system built into the handlebars, a folding option, and more! It is definitely worth a look!
This is something new that I am trying. Everyday I come across cool electric bike stuff happening in the world and I want to share it with you. So I will be putting together one post a week just for electric bike news. I will still be doing other posts on ebike reviews, guides, videos, maintenance, etc. These news posts may be a combination of stuff that is currently happening as well as some info that is older news that I just stumble upon and want to share with you.
I will be adding links to this post through out the week, so stay tuned 🙂
And if you find something cool that you want to share with the Electric Bike Report community, please leave it in the comment section below.
If you would rather sit back and watch the highlights you can checkout electric bike news video.
