E-bikes and Cascade

Cascade believes in Bicycling for All, and that innovative technology can help more people discover the joys of bicycling

People who wouldn’t have considered riding a traditional bike are becoming electric bike (e-­bike) riders -- and people who love riding bikes but have physical limitations are finding e-bikes make them want to pedal farther. The electric pedal assist boost gives people the ability to flatten hills, travel longer distances, get up and go at busy city intersections, and bike while carrying groceries or a child. 

E-bikes provide people new opportunities to enjoy the benefits of riding a bicycle. The growing availability and improved technology of electric-assist bicycles is reflected in the demand as e-bike sales are up more than 450 percent since 2013.
