Electric bicycles emerge as a hot trend in the U.S. 📈🚴🔌

"Established bike companies and startups are embracing #ebikes to meet demand. About 34 million ebikes were sold worldwide in 2017...most were sold in Europe and China, where the bikes already have exploded in popularity. In 2017, the U.S. market grew to 263,000 bikes, a 25% gain from the prior year.

The industry is benefiting from improved batteries as suppliers over the years developed technology for laptops, smartphones and electric cars. In 2004, lithium ion battery prices fell low enough to be used on electric bikes, spurring European sales." #electricbikes

Uber tests electric bikesharing in San Francisco 🚴🔌 [#SanFran]

"Uber users in the area can join an online waitlist to reserve bicycles from Jump Bikes, a New York-based bikeshare company. Rides will cost $2 for the first 30 minutes, and $1 for each additional 15 minutes.

Jump's electric bicycles use a pedal assist method, in which electric power is provided to the wheels as a person pedals. Electric bike sales are growing in the U.S. as riders are drawn to their fun factor, health benefits and convenience." #ebikes #electricbikes #biking
