Electric Bikes Coming to Grand Rapids Cottage & Lakefront Living Show

Electric bikes are coming to the Grand Rapids Cottage & Lakefront Living Show! Electric Bike Place (powered by MACkite) has kicked it up a notch and upgraded to a spacious 10 x 20-foot booth, so visitors will be able to test ride and get close to the electric beauties of the biking industry.

Unsure of what is an electric bike? Imagine a bicycle frame combined with a motor and battery. Many ebikes travel between 18 and 30 miles per hour and can cover an average distance of 25 to 60 miles.

Electric bikes are starting to sweep the globe because they allow for many different types of riders to be active and to have fun, all while having the support of a motor and a battery. Riders with back, knee, or ankle injuries will be able to ride easily, knowing they aren’t adding to the pain or strain.

There are a variety of ebikes, from mountain to foldable bicycles. Looking for a perfect addition to the cottage? Consider the Pedego Latch, a foldable electric bike that folds in as little 30-seconds and also features a belt drivetrain rather than a greasy chain.

Electric Bike Place is showcasing five electric bike brands at the 2017 Grand Rapids Cottage & Lakefront Living Show, taking place March 24th to 26th: Pedego, Haibike, iZip, ProdecoTech, and Stromer. Visitors can find Electric Bike Place at booth #2416 – head straight after the entryway and turn left after the first set of booths.

Visitors who stop by the booth will receive 50% off an electric bike rental, a free experience at the MACTrack (opening Spring 2017), and a chance to win a electric bike and stand up paddleboard rental Family 4 Pack (a $400 value)
