    BikeArlington Presents: E-bike Demo and Ride with Rad Power Bikes
    Oct 30 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

    Join BikeArlington and Rad Power Bikes for a free event to learn about and test ride e-bikes!

    E-bikes are changing the world. With the extra boost from pedal assistance or a throttle (or both), more people can enjoy the freedom and joy of riding a bike, more of the time. Whether you’re a parent looking for a sustainable, easy way to do school drop-off, a commuter looking to sweat less, or someone who just wants an extra boost, an e-bike might be for you.

    We will meet at Quincy Parking Deck and hear from employees and owners of Rad Power e-bikes before going for a ride around Arlington to test out the e-bikes on trails, streets, and hills.

    Rad will have 10 e-bikes available to take on the ride and slots are first come, first served. If you already have an e-bike, join us on the ride to share your experience as an e-bike owner.

    Riders should be comfortable balancing and riding on a bike. The ride will be at a relaxed pace as new riders adjust to the e-bike experience. Helmets are required on Rad & BikeArlington rides; if you do not have one please indicate that when registering and we will lend you one.
