Last April, some EV owners on Cortes Island held an “EV Faire” at Manson’s Hall; they brought their vehicles to show and discuss, and giving test rides to some attendees. Coverage of this event focussed on the big shiny cars; but there are actually more e-bikes than e-cars on Cortes Island, and I felt the bikes didn’t get enough page space.
I therefore asked e-bike owners to contact me if they would like to be interviewed, so I could profile them and their bikes. The first three respondents all had quite different bikes, so this article has three sections, one for each bike:
- “Best of Both Worlds” — Biktrix fat-tyre MTB
- “A Trip To Manson’s is Hardly Noticeable” — Tern cargo bike
- “I’m Not Really Feeling Any Need For More” — YaJie e-scooter
