Could electric bikes be Hobart's clean transport solution?

Come along to the Hobart Regatta Grounds on Monday 31 Jan at 6pm to find out. There'll be a range of electric bikes for people to test ride. Visiting from Sydney is Maurice Wells, one of Australia's leading electric bike experts. He will be able to give advice on what to look for in an electric bike as well as what is most appropriate for you. Find out how good electric bikes are on Hobart's hills!

Maurice and his partner are about to ride their electric bikes from Hobart to Launceston via the Central Plateau. Thanks to the electric motor, they will cover this distance in just three easy days, taking hills in their stride and enjoying the wonderful scenery. No lycra, no sweat.

Organised by eco-Bikes, a South Hobart-grown small business.
