UPDATE: This event was cancelled on 10 August due to the solar eclipse.
The Electric Bike Expo is coming to Portland this month. This Electric Bike Expo is a demonstration event that travels the USA, offering the opportunity to test ride more than 150 different ebikes on a closed test track, for free. What’s not to like about that? Plus, you get to learn all about ebiking and the latest ebikes, also for free! Finally … it’s in Portland, which is one of the finest cities in the world to ride a bike.
Test Ride More Than 150 Different Ebikes
Come test ride more than 150 different models of the latest electric assist bikes from brands such as Blix, BULLS, Cannondale (Terrain Lane Sponsor), BMW, Easy Motion, Elby, Giant, Haibike, Ohm, Riese & Muller, Specialized, Urban Arrow, Smartmotion, Specialized, Tempo (Expo Charity Sponsor), Trek (Expo Track Sponsor), Wallerang, and Ohm, with the latest electric drive systems from Bosch (Expo Presenting Sponsor), Shimano, Brose, Yamaha, and others. Bosch, manufacturers of premium ebike systems, is the major sponsor.
Electric bike models include all kinds of bikes, including beach cruisers, commuters, mountain bikes and cargo bikes. Many are in the USA for testing for the very first time!
Here is a video in which the legendary ebike expert, Turbo Bob, organizes a group ride at a previous Electric Bike Expo, this one in San Diego!
Other Opportunities at the Portland Electric Bike Expo
Meet the manufacturers, attend free safety education sessions, and spend five dollars on a raffle ticket that could win you a Carmel or Santa Barbara hybrid electric bike worth $4,000! All raffle proceeds go to a local bike advocacy organization. Or, just buy a bike with one of the special discounts available at the Electric Bike Expo.
The event is at Portland Meadows on August 18-20, 2017. That’s at 1001 N Schmeer Rd, Portland, OR 97217. If you are thinking about this event, book a hotel now. We just decided to go, and it took a long time to find a hotel that still had a room AND would let us store our bikes indoors.
