“We have a couple goals for this program,” said Erik Remsen of Safe Routes Middlebury. “First, we’d like to see more bikes around town because bikes are an indicator of a vibrant, healthy, and people-centered community. Second, they’re a way to both reduce your carbon footprint and car congestion in town. And third, because we have both an electric cargo bike and electric commuter bike, folks can truly experience biking as a viable form of transportation.”
E-bikes are a transportation option that are becoming more familiar and necessary, and the goal of this program is to introduce Vermonters to how they can be incorporated into everyday life and replace car trips. From commuting to work to picking up groceries and carrying kids to school, e-bikes provide an extra boost of power that makes miles feel shorter and cargo feel lighter.
