Here are testimonials from some of the participants in the Vélovolt trials.

Marie-Christine, a participant from Québec

"This opportunity to have access to an electrically assisted bike has allowed me to overcome my own barriers associated with bike travel caused by the anxiety associated with my commute and the logistics of being able to lug my gear around. I will now opt for incorporating this mode into my weekly travels using my own bike so that I can enjoy both the personal and environmental benefits."

Emilie, a participant from Montréal

"These 4 weeks of testing an EAB have been a real joy! Not only are my commutes to and from work faster than on public transportation, they are more environmentally friendly and probably better for my health, but they are most of all more enjoyable!"

Clément, a participant from Québec

"Being very active and passionate about biking, using this electrically assisted bike has made me want to go back to commuting back and forth to work by bike. The different modes help us a lot when going up hills, which is very much appreciated because you get to work drier. I arrive in the morning more awake and it gets me moving even more. Thank you!"
