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.

The Deals:

  • 25%
    off all e-bikes in store
  • 2
    brands and 14 models to choose from : Felt

Small Planet E-Bikes in Longmont

  • 10-20%
    off e-bikes depending on make and model
  • 4

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.”

About E-Bikes

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.
