E-bike theater during the fair

E-bike Challenge 2019 was a success!

The E-bike Challenge Minneapolis held at the Minneapolis Convention Center on March 23–24, 2019 was deemed a success.

There were 2,800 attendees at the first event of its kind in the United States. From older cyclists to younger ones, experienced cyclists and novices. More than 4,200 e-bike test rides were taken on the event’s indoor course. Some e-bikes were ridden almost 60 miles. In comparison, the 36th-annual Interbike 2018, hosted in Reno, Nevada, had 3,800 test rides.

Attendees at E-bike Challenge Minneapolis came ready to buy e-bikes from the show floor, as well as those who purchased e-bikes from local bike shops, after they left the show. It was reported that some bike shops ran out of some e-bike models.

Exhibitors who assisted attendees throughout the show, also reported that those who were present to learn about e-bikes, were ready to purchase them.
