Are you tired of $6-a-gallon gas? Would you like to find out about how you can access local e-bike rebates? How about your options when it comes to 0% interest financing? GO Santa Cruz and Ecology Action invite you to this primer on all things e-bike.

Maybe you’ve thought about biking to work, but you’re concerned about hills, distance, or the extra time it will take you. Perhaps you’d love to ride, but you are a busy parent with kids to transport and errands to run. From hauling kids, to having time to take the scenic route, and arriving to work sweat-free, this workshop will explore e-bike options for a diversity of lifestyles.

Ecology Action staff will provide an overview introduction of e-bikes, with time for audience Q&A. Topics will include picking the right e-bike for you, different e-bike technologies, cost/rebates/financing, environmental benefits, and an investigation if e-bikes can really replace car trips.

Get inspired by testimonials from local e-bike owners and use interactive polls to hone-in on what’s most important to you in an e-bike. We’ll also dive into the question on everyone’s mind: “Are e-bikes cheating?” Spoiler alert: nope, not even close 😄

What people have said about the workshop:

“”Great workshop, super helpful, well organized and facilitated!””

“”This was spectacular! I learned so much and am now revisiting the thought of purchasing an e-bike and selling my vehicle.””  

*Free Bell helmets and Blackburn bike lights (a $100 value) available for all attendees employed by businesses in Santa Cruz County.
