Electric Bikes for Commuting and Recreation

At VanMoof ...we want to get the next billion on bikes by making bike commuting as accessible as possible. E-bikes have evolved and are mainstreaming as a high tech, mass appeal mobility option, especially for those living in cities with a commute problem to solve.

Van Moof brothers, Ties and Taco Carlier are on the cutting edge of making main stream electric bikes. This article, Why it’s time to update Europe’s outdated e-bike speed limit examines what is holding back an “exciting transportation breakthrough.” See link below.


VanMoof is promoting e-bikes for commuting, but my new S3 is a perfect bike for handling the California Foothills. I recently rode 26 miles, with 1,775 feet of elevation gain, in 1 hour and 45 minutes, along rural roads in Calaveras County. I typically ride a traditional road bike weekly in Calaveras County but, I purchased the VanMoof S3 as an alternative recreational bike. Each week, I’m exploring a destination ride to a California Gold Rush Town.

As communities embrace cycling tourism, e-bikes will increase the cycling tourists who come to ride bikes in the Central Valley, Motherlode and Sierras.
