One year after its launch, the success of our Vélovolt campaign clearly shows that the Electrically Assisted Bike (EAB) has a bright future as a means of transportation in Quebec.
Vélovolt, which provides organizations with the opportunity to provide free electric bike trials for their staff team, has been creating many electric bike enthusiasts at the 10 companies that have so far participated. Having the chance to give EABs a try, many participants are convinced that the electric bike is the best way to travel from home to the office and back.
"Participants were unanimous in reporting a positive experience, with more energy at work, a better mood and a sense of pride. All around positive!" - Mélissa Magny, Coordinator of the Vélovolt project at the CJE Trois-Rivières/MRC des Chenaux
