Caring for your e-bike during cold winter months

Winter is here.

This might trigger thoughts of internet memes but there’s an e-bike connection too. Snowy winter weather conditions mean that lots of riders cut down on the time they spend on two wheels while others have to put their bikes away altogether for a couple of months. This period of inactivity can create issues unique to e-bikes and severely compromise their ability to properly function. If allowed to continue long enough, they can even permanently diminish the bike’s performance. 

Bike sharing isn't always a solution to every commute

Who would criticise the idea of a bike-sharing programme? No one, that’s who. We’re all for anything that gets people active and doesn’t contribute to urban traffic congestion. The recent explosion of such programmes, typically supported by local governments, is nothing short of amazing and another sign that disruptive ideas and technologies have a place in the search for solutions to the gridlock that too often defines city life.
