Have you ever noticed that people riding e-bikes always seem to be smiling? That may be why sales of electric bikes have skyrocketed over the past decade, and are expected to more than double again by 2030. And, each time someone makes that switch from a car to an e-bike for those short, under five-mile trips, it’s a win for the environment.

In this panel, Electrify Now Program Manager and CleanTechnica contributor Joe Wachunas joins John MacArthur, the Sustainable Transportation Program Manager at Portland State University TREC, Eva Frazier, the owner of Clever Cycles, and me (the best one) for an hour-long webinar that covers some of the most basic questions about e-bikes, and some tips about how to pick an e-bike that you’ll love.

As you watch the webinar, it’s important to note that it’s almost impossible to overstate how much attaching an electric motor to assist the movement of a traditional bicycle has revolutionized electric transportation for many Americans. E-bikes have encouraged and enabled more people to use bicycles for the first time in years, taken them further than they would have dared before, and even created radically new types of electric micro-mobility options with heavy-duty cargo bikes, one-wheels, and electric scooters.

You can watch the webinar video for yourself, below, then head over to our MASSIVE list of e-bike brands and start exploring. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a bike that’s absolutely perfect with a random click — and, if you do, be sure to tell us all about it in the comments section at the bottom of the page!

Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it!! So, we've decided to completely nix paywalls here at CleanTechnica. But...
