In 2007, Maurice Wells made his first electric bicycle from a used bike and a conversion kit and gifted it to his mother in Canberra. Meanwhile Wai Won Ching, was heading off to ride across the entire Silk Road on his flagship long distance electric bicycle, the eZee Torq. Since that time, Ching has tackled 3000km of off-road from Namibia to Cape Town, a trip around Taiwan with his 10 year old daughter and 5,500km from Perth to Sydney in the company of myself and Abraham Wile. Just last year he participated in the Suntrip, riding from Lyon, France to Western China, thus marrying the end point of his original Silk Road trip all the way to Western Europe. Some of these trips have been archived on his blog, www.ezee2ride.com/.
Other than the Perth-Sydney trip, Maurice has also completed 4,500km from Cape York to Sydney, a trip across Tasmania, a jaunt from Nelson to ChCh and more. Talia and Alex from ebiketeam recently rode the Alps to the Ocean in reverse to get a bit more hill climbing into their daily routine.
Come along for a casual evening’s discussion of e-bike touring in the company of the enigmatic CEO of eZeebike! Whether your idea of a long ride is to the cafe or to the moon, we’d love to see your faces. All welcome, e-bike owners or otherwise. This event is on Facebook.
We are meeting at 6pm on Thursday Feb 21 at Ebike Team, 29 East Street, Eden Terrace.
