We had am amazing day at the Vermont Electric Vehicle Demo Day which was put together and organized by Vermont Energy Investment Corporation. Hundreds of people attended and got up close to the latest hybrid and electic cars as well as the cool bikes from Zoombikes. Can you spot Lt. Governor Phil Scott and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger on our home page slideshow? They were among the scores of people who rode our bikes. I wish I had a dime for every time someone returned from a demo ride and said "Man, that is really cool!"
We made some great contacts with folks from UVM Transportation Center, VEIC, the South Burlington School District, Burlington Electric, and lots and lots of folks just curious about what an e-bike is. There was a great vibe around alternative transportation; lots of people exploring different ways of getting from A to B. We're more convinced than ever that bikes will plan an increasing role in local and state planning.
