Cynergy E-Bikes Opens in Portland Today

Cynergy E-Bikes, a new business in Southeast Portland specializing in electric power assisted bicycles, is holding their Grand Opening celebration today, April 5 th from 10am-6pm. The celebration will be at their store in the Powell Square shopping plaza location at the corner of SE Powell Blvd and Cesar Chavez Blvd (SE 39 th Ave).

Electric power assisted bicycles combine the use of an electric motor and a rechargeable battery with pedal power to make hill climbing easier, for increased speed and to reduce fatigue. The new store provides a wide variety of e-bikes suitable for commuting, general recreation and off road riding. They also carry kits for transforming a standard bike into an e-bike.

As part of their Grand Opening celebration, Cynergy E-Bikes is offering:

> A Bike Giveaway Sweepstakes awarding a new 2014 IZIP Path+ electric bike, valued at $2200, to the winner.

> Acontribution to Bikes for Humanity PDX for every store visitor who participates in a test ride during the Grand Opening April 5 th celebration.

"With the increase in reliability and product choices, along with improvements in technology, many believe 2014 will be the breakout year for electric power assisted bicycles to become an established alternative urban transportation in the U.S. They are already popular in Europe with 1 of every 10 bikes sold in Germany, Switzerland and Austria being electric, and that share is growing." states Cynergy E-Bike's owner Rich Fein. "The added speed, extended range and ease of climbing hills make e-bikes an alternative to driving for a broader share of the population. And Portland's combination of top-rated cycling infrastructure and hilly terrain make it ideal to set the stage for e-bikes to become an affordable, low-maintenance, clean-transportation solution. And best of all, e-bikes are fun to ride."<

In support of expanding all forms of bicycle riding in Portland, Cynergy will make a contribution to Bikes for Humanity PDX (B4HPDX) for anyone who does an e-bike test ride during the April 5 th event. B4HPDX is a local, public charity project providing affordable refurbished bicycles to riders of all economic backgrounds. They also provide professional bike repair curriculum, tools, and shop space for volunteers to learn and work on refurbishing donated bikes. "We see e-bikes as another option for expanding cycling in the Portland area, both for the active rider, and also for our aging population looking to get back into riding," states Steven Kung, B4HPDX founder.
