Electric Bikes for Supervisors
As a bid to be eco-friendly and gain efficiency when our supervisors are moving around the vineyards, we are currently trialing an electric bike. The supervisors are loving the bike, so it looks like we might be off to the bike store to buy more! We will give it another month or so, but our hope is that all supervisors will be using an electric bike. If you are unsure on what an electric bike is, you may have heard them being called e-bike, power bike or booster bike.
An electric bike it just a bike with an integrated electric motor that can be used for propulsion. E-bikes can have a small motor to assist the rider’s pedal-power to more powerful e-bikes which tend to be closer to a scooter style functionality; however, all retain the ability to be pedaled by the rider and are, therefore, not electric motorcycles. If you have never ridden one, we highly recommend popping down to a bike store and giving one a whirl as they are so much fun!
