Ford GoBikes are going electric in San Francisco

: techcrunch – excerpt

Motivate, the company behind the San Francisco Yay (Bay) Area’s bike-share system, is adding pedal-assist e-bikes to its fleets this April. The one-year pilot will launch with 250 of these e-bikes in San Francisco, the company announced today.

The bikes, created by startup GenZe, are designed to assist riders as they’re pedaling, therefore reducing the need for much energy while biking — especially uphill.

  1. A lot of times I have commented on ICLIE and how this based on their one degree hotter climate change arguement. Now it has been the coldest year ever yet they also made an arguement blaming that on climate change as well.

    Created by United Nations development program/sustainable development. Aka iclie.

    Well here is the true meaning of vision zero. Vision zero stands for zero carbon
