eBiking to the office
A NEW KIND OF COMMUTER
A look at the USA
More and more professionals in the United States are commuting to work with eBikes. One such example is Dave Hanson, who leaves outside of San Francisco.
Getting to work
Dave Hanson lives with his family in Sausalito, a picturesque residential community outside of San Francisco. To get to the office, the 44-year-old project manager uses his eBike – since by car, he often ended up stuck in traffic and stressed out on arrival. With his eBike, Dave easily manages San Francisco's many steep hills and enjoys his daily commutes: “On my way home, I often take detours, like along the coast or to my favorite café.” More and more professionals are deciding to do it Dave's way. There has been strong growth in the number of bicycle commuters in the United States, and pedelecs are increasingly popular. The potential in Germany is enormous, as well. In fact, the proportion of cycling in the mobility mix of the country's major cities is expected to grow from 8 to 28 percent.
