ESBC E-BIKE LIBRARY PROGRAM

WHAT IS IT?

East Side Bike Club’s (ESBC) E-Bike Library is a program of ESBC with support from Shared Mobility, Inc (SMI) that is making a fleet of shared e-bikes available for community members to ride free of charge through group and individual riding.

The mission of ESBC is to expand access and awareness of biking in communities of color through weekly bike rides, open workshop hours and pop up events throughout the city to engage with residents and  stakeholders. ESBC is a program of Buffalo United Front, a coalition of frontline organizations and individuals working to improve the quality of life for Buffalo residents.

E-BIKES CAN TAKE YOU FARTHER!

First time riding an e-bike, and you don’t know what to expect? E-bikes are bikes that give you a boost! We think it will transform the world of transportation and open up biking to many more. The gentle assist helps you get up those hills and makes headwinds a thing of the past.

You'll be amazed at how much further you can ride on an e-bike, all while still giving you the opportunity to get some exercise and fresh air.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Are you interested in joining our community of e-bike riders? We're looking for riders who are highly motivated to appreciate these incredible community assets as we test out a new mobility program in Western New York. If you are interested in being involved, please begin by filling out the survey materials below. Participation is completely free, however we are only able to support a limited number of riders this summer.

Riders get acquainted with the program and the e-bikes through in person orientation sessions, held outside in a socially distanced setting. Haven’t touched an e-bike before? No problem! Orientation sessions will turn any pedal bike rider into an e-bike rider. Orientations will also be an opportunity for riders to get to know each other and us, a key part of our vision with this project: broadening the community of bicycle riders throughout our region.
