POSTPONED- E-Bike Workshop
In light of recent developments surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), Redwood Coast Energy Authority has decided to postpone the E-Bike Workshop. RCEA believes it to be in the best interest of the community to take proactive measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Public safety is our top priority. We want to ensure the safety and well-being of our event staff, participants, and community members. RCEA will also be suspending all other RePower Hour events until further notice. Updates will be provided regarding the event when more information becomes available. Thank you for your understanding.
The Redwood Coast Energy Authority (RCEA) is presenting a public workshop about electric bikes on Saturday, March 21, from 1-4 p.m., at the Ten Pin Building in Arcata, 793 K St. (in the Creamery District between K & L Streets on Eighth St.). A presentation and shared stories will take place from 1:30-3 p.m., with additional time for test rides and mingling.
Two-wheeled commuters are on the rise, both locally and internationally, as people are discovering the pure joy, extended range, and easy commute that eBikes offer. This workshop will cover the basics of why eBikes have become such a popular option, what kind of e-bikes are available (including locally made retrofits), what to consider when buying one, where they can be ridden, how they help the environment, and some of the challenges that riders may encounter. EBike enthusiasts will share their stories, and eBikes will be available to take for a spin. Local trail groups will provide updates about Humboldt County’s regional trail system, the Annie & Mary Trail group will sell raffle tickets for a Rad Runner eBike, and the Coalition for Responsible Transportation Priorities will present information about how eBikes fit into land use planning. This workshop will prepare folks to take advantage of RCEA’s eBike rebate when it becomes available to RCEA customers in April. (More information about the rebate available soon).
The Ten Pin Building is on the Arcata Trail, which winds through the heart of Arcata. EBike owners, makers, and vendors are encouraged to participate; there will be ample space. There is no fee to show your bikes or attend the event.
The Electric Bike Workshop is a part of the RePower Hour series designed to answer Humboldt County’s critical energy questions.
