“Our work on electric bicycles includes everything from increasing access and adoption to product regulation to incentive programs and policies, allowing PeopleForBikes to provide attendees with timely and relevant education and data presented by industry experts,” said Jenn Dice, president and CEO of PeopleForBikes.
NBDA’s Mason also notes that their support also aligns with the B2B trade aspect of the show for retailers, stating “The e side of our industry has been evolving at rapid pace, (e)revolution provides a great opportunity to showcase the full breadth and depth of our mobility technology, capabilities, and broad ecosystem of partners.”
Camisasca, acknowledging the importance of aiding the organization’s advocacy efforts, said, “(e)revolution is committed to improving the e-bike market and that is why we are donating a portion of our proceeds to both organizations.”
“We are thankful to (e)revolution for strengthening and supporting our advocacy efforts to make riding an electric bicycle easy and accessible for everyone,”
