Flash back to 2016, and most of us had never heard of electric bikes. We’d get in our cars, and give little thought to commuting 1-2 miles to work here in hilly Hood River, Oregon.

We arrive happy, energized, and decidedly not smelly.
Of course, why we e-bike here at Oregon E-Bikes goes beyond commuting. Some of us are married with children, others live the bachelor life, and a few of us are headed for retirement.
