"Attention Rogue Valley Cyclists"
Get ready for the Haibike Dirt Demo coming to Medford on Sunday June 4. It will be held from 10a to 2pm on the trails of Prescott Park. We will be set up at the second gate on Roxy Ann Road. If you have ever wondered what riding a pedal-assist mountain bike feels like this is your chance to ride one offroad. Haibike is the No. 1 seller of pedal-assist mountain bikes with many different models to choose from. Haibike has models with either the Bosch or Yamaha ebike systems for a ride that feels like you are always at your best.
An electric assist bicycle will assist the rider up to 20mph on flat ground and then the assist turns off and the rider does all the work above 20mph. When climbing hills the speed will be less because the motors are not strong enough to climb at 20 mph unless the rider is a REALLY strong climber. The assist works as an amplifier and gives back a percentage of the riders effort only when pedaling. Because of this feature, when descending a trail the motor is not doing anything.
I would highly recommend coming to see the bikes on Sunday between 10am and 2pm to see what the bikes are like. This is a fairly new technology that enables many more people to enjoy cycling that would not otherwise ride a bike.
