Winter Springs, FL – As the popularity of ebikes continues to surge, there is an opportunity for riders to fully harness the potential of these powerful vehicles. There is also a need to address growing concerns about rider behavior and safety.

Knowing where the risks are and how to anticipate them is essential at higher speeds.

Ebikes have revolutionized urban commuting, offering riders increased range with the power to overcome physical barriers such as fatigue, hills, and headwinds. However, with this surge in popularity comes the need for riders to operate their ebikes safely and responsibly, particularly in navigating transportation infrastructure.

The American Bicycling Education Association (ABEA) has added a new course to their signature CyclingSavvy program. The comprehensive PowerSavvy Ebike Course is designed to equip riders with the knowledge and skills needed to make the most of their investment.

From understanding the nuances of electric propulsion to mastering navigation through city streets, students will gain invaluable insights into maximizing their riding experience while minimizing risks.
