Learning About E-Bikes At Senior Resource Center

On Friday, July 10, the Princeton Senior Resource Center will host a “Lunch and Learn” program on E-Bikes by Russ White, a partner in Sourland Cycles in Hopewell. Mr. White will discuss the battery technology that makes possible the Tesla and other electrically- powered cars which is now available on bicycles.

Five levels of pedal assist capability on these bikes permits any cyclist to easily climb any hill or go miles further with just gentle effort on the pedals. This technologic assistance could be of particular interest to anyone who wants to ride alongside a more experienced cyclist or with a group of companions at varying levels of energy and endurance. The high quality e-bikes are built to last, easy to ride and perform under all conditions. Program attendees will have the opportunity to take a test ride on the latest and greatest bike technology.

Mr. White, a former publishing executive, founded the Trenton Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange in 2009, a program that provides working bicycles to low-income families at a low cost; offers internships to Trenton high school youth; and raises money – so far more than $500,000 – for the after school programs of the Trenton Boys and Girls Club.

The program is free and begins at noon at the Suzanne Patterson Building, 45 Stockton Street. Participants can bring a brown bag lunch; beverages and dessert will be provided.  Registration is encouraged. Call (609) 924.7108.
