Discount Electric Bike Purchase Program
Boulder County residents can access significant discounts
for electric bikes
Boulder County, Colo. -- By reducing the price and helping to spread the benefits of getting around by bike, Boulder County and its municipalities are providing another reason for area residents to get out of a car and onto an electric bike (e-bike). For a limited time only, the Benefits Boulder County program is offering deals on e-bikes.
“Boulder County is making it easier and more affordable for residents to access an emerging technology that lowers our impact on the environment and supports healthier lifestyles,” said Brad Smith, Sustainability Specialist for Boulder County. “By overcoming cycling barriers such as distance or a rider’s level of physical endurance, e-bikes can help more people get on a bike instead of using their gas-powered vehicle.”
To take advantage of the reduced pricing for an e-bike, residents in all Boulder County communities can go to www.BoulderCountyDeals.org to sign up and receive their discount code. These limited time offers are available until Sept. 30, 2017.

“Electric bikes are helping more people cycle and helping people cycle more,” said Smith. “This helps to reduce climate changing greenhouse gas emissions, traffic congestion, and physical inactivity.”
E-Bikes are essentially bicycles with a pedal assist electric motor to make riding more efficient, effective, and fun. This electric motor assists riders to go further faster, aiding them as they climb hills or tote groceries, and allowing them to arrive at their destination without breaking a sweat. E-bikes have a variety of uses from leisure to commuting to hauling groceries and even your family. Connect with an authorized dealer to learn more and find a bike that fits your needs.
Through a competitive solicitation process, an evaluation committee selected reputable vendors to provide sustainability goods and services to Boulder County residents at discounted prices. Since 2015, this program has facilitated the purchase of more than 123 residential rooftop solar systems, 289 electric cars, and 80 electric bikes in Boulder County. Tax payer dollars have only been spent on staff time and outreach; no tax payer dollars have been spent to lower the cost of these technologies.
