I never was an e-bike fan until I got my Xtracycle and found myself hauling my daughter and 4 bags of groceries around the hills of Arlington. Still, the systems always seemed ridiculously heavy and hilariously complicated for a shop to work on. After checking out the Bosch-equipped Xtracycle Edgerunner at Interbike, I was sold. I like the idea of the #BoschSmiles program, and although I’m not in LA or SF, it’s worthwhile to post if it gets more people out of their cars.

Bosch Introduces Bosch Smiles Program

A new kind of bike share program coming to SF & LA 2015

Bosch is seeking cyclists with a dream – whether it’s hauling your kids to and from school, tackling a long commuter over monstrous hills, or making your own outdoor adventure.  Tell us the dream and how an eBike epowered by Bosch’s high performance electric drive system might help you realize it.  

Bosch together partners Felt, Haibike, Lapierre, and Xtracycle, might help make it come true.

From May to September, ten cyclists in SF and LA will be selected to throw a leg over an eBike for one month.  Bosch will help share your story and smiles with other cyclists.

To apply, please email Boschsmiles@gmail.com between April 1 and April 20th, 2015.
