Three exciting stories coming out of City Hall about ebikes
1) The Bureau of Transportation's Smart Trips Business blog featured an area ebiker (ahem) and discussed the future of electric vehicles.
2) In an unrelated post, the Mayor's office discussed ebikes, asking if they were a viable alternative to a local car trip. Of course, I think so!
3) And finally, the press machine that is Sanyo has donated on of their Eneloop bikes to City Hall for use as a fleet vehicle. I'll be interested to see how it will work in a fleet environment - will it be a smashing success, or languish somewhere in a closet, with no care taken to keep the battery charged? Come on City Hall'ers - make the leap!
