E-bike Q and A podcast

Wondering if e-bikes could suit your lifestyle, but unsure where to start? At our recent e-bike Q and A at Preston Library, we put the big questions to a panel of experts:

  • How affordable are e-bikes?
  • What options are there for carrying kids, shopping and pets?
  • Could I convert my existing bike?
  • How do you charge an e-bike and how far can you go?
  • Isn’t it cheating to use an e-bike?

You can tune into this electric discussion at 3CR’s YarraBUG Radio show. The 3-part podcast series ‘Darebin Loves E-bikes’ is available now.
