If you’ve been noticing many more eBikes lately, be it around town, in the news or on Colorado trails, you are witnessing one of the biggest movements within the current bicycling boom!
eBikes are one of the hottest commodities at Colorado bike shops and within the industry nationwide. And for good reason—electric-powered bicycles help folks travel further by bike and open up biking to some who otherwise wouldn’t be able to ride. They help clean up our air when people decide to replace some of their car trips with biking. According to data from the 2017 National Household Travel Survey (NHTS), 67% of all trips three miles or fewer are in a privately owned vehicle.
Bikes make communities more resilient. Most notably, though, and perhaps the biggest motivator for anyone who’s tried one—eBikes are just plain fun.
Win an Orbea eBike
If you have been having trouble purchasing an eBike recently due to supply chain issues and a big increase in demand, or if you just want to get one for yourself, Bicycle Colorado is offering two Orbea Optima Class 1 eBikes during their summer raffle in partnership with SloHi Bike Co, a bike shop based in Denver.
SloHi selected the Orbea Optima for this raffle because it’s one of their best-selling eBikes. It’s stylish, simple and fun. The Orbea Optima E50 is an affordable and comfortable electric city bike with step-thru frame for easy access.
Since they’re drawing two winners, you can purchase two or more tickets and have a chance at winning not one, but both bikes! They will be selecting a winner at random for two prizes: Small Orbea Optima E50 in light blue & Medium Orbea Optima E50 in turquoise!
With a maximum of 500 tickets sold, this is one of your best chances to score an eBike. Even better than the chance at winning, each ticket purchase is a gift in support of bicycle advocacy. Your ticket purchase is a vote in support of Bicycle Colorado’s vision of a Colorado where bicycling is safe and accessible for everyone.
If you’re feeling lucky and looking for a chance to win an Orbea eBike from Colorado-based bike shop SloHi Bike Co, consider purchasing your ticket today. Proceeds go to a great cause for people who ride bikes in Colorado.
By purchasing tickets, you will join the Bicycle Colorado movement toward a Colorado where riding a bicycle is always safe and convenient for everyone.
