ebike-to-work

Miss Karen from The New Wheel, our newfangled electric bike shop on Cortland, writes to share a cool opportunity to borrow one of their impressive ebikes — for free! — during Bike to Work Week:

We have partnered with a bicycle company called Felt to do two group rides (which double as fundraisers for the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition) and two days of free ebike rentals during Bike To Work Week. It’s going to be a super-fun way for the fine people of Bernal to participate in Bike To Work Month (even if they don’t have a bike) or to spend a day with an ebike if they are just curious. Here are the details:

E-Bike to Work Day* – May 7, 2014 8am 

Get your legs loosened up the day before the annual Bike to Work Day on an electric bike! The New Wheel is leading the ultimate group ride – to work! We’ll guide you on a scenic ride downtown over Twin Peaks to the Ferry Building astride a pedal assist electric bicycle from Felt. From there you can take the bike for the day to work, or leave it with us. Come in work attire: no need to worry about sweat, traffic bottlenecks, hills or distance!

Meet at The New Wheel (across the street from the Bank of America)
Ages +18
Free to SF Bicycle Coalition Members, $10 suggested donation for non-members

RSVP (Space is limited)

May 8 and 9, 2014 8am – Bike to Work Day (on a loaner Felt ebike)*

Commute by ebike for a day for free! The New Wheel and Felt are partnering to offer 20 lucky riders the opportunity to experience the best ride to work ever on a Bosch powered pedal assist bicycle from Felt.*

May 8 RSVP | May 9 RSVP

May 10, 2014 8am – Breakers to Bay*

On this group ride we’ll guide you on a trip across San Francisco like never before. Trade pain in for fun! You’ll see how fun San Francisco is to cycle on a pedal assist ebike- defying all of your expectations and concurring even the scariest hills. We’ll start in Bernal Heights, head over Twin Peaks and then down to Trouble Coffee at Ocean Beach. From Trouble, we’ll head back across town to the Ferry Building.

  1. Very tempting! When I test-rode e-bikes there, I was blown away at the ease with which they helped my climb the steep slopes of Bernal Heights. I’m still stuck with a completely human-powered commute, but this would be an awesome opportunity…

  2. I recently bought an electric bike from New Wheel. I take my kid to school AND carry groceries up and down the Hill. We are now car-free and loving it!
