More than 60 Miles on My IZip Protour Electric Bike, "Sparky" 

IZIP E3 Protour Electric Bike

I have been enjoying the power, beauty and safety of riding electric bikes for over a year now. I have owned a total of three different electric bikes, the eFlow E3 Nitro, the IZIP E3 Dash and now the IZIP E3 Protour electric bike. All of them have been wonderful, but this one, the Protour has the strongest battery of them all.

Electric Bike Lady! 

Electric Bike Lady SM Airport

When I first began riding my electric bike, "The Dasher" as I like to call him, I was a physical mess. Less than a year ago, I had a hard time walking, cleaning myself, cleaning my home, dressing myself. I didn't want to move and didn't want anyone to see me. I've been suffering from arthritis and other ailments that were compounded by my weight gain. Because I couldn't move, I wouldn't move which just made things worse.  If you can understand how it feels even a little bit then you can understand how depressed I have been.

Why an Electric Bike? 

Why Electric Bicycles!

​Most people who own an electric bike use it for their daily commute to work or to take care of errands. They really depend on them to move around! Riding a regular bike already has lots of benefits that a car or other alternative transportation does not offer, like saving time, money in gas, maintenance, parking, tickets and insurance...

My IZIP E3 Dash Electric Bike

If you are reading this you are probably just as in love with riding your bicycle as I am.  I love to ride.  I've been riding a bike to work, school and play what seems like my entire life. I love it so much that I became a ride producer. For the last ten years I have spent my days and nights putting on biking events for charities. As a result, I get to spend a lot of time exploring this great city on my bicycle.

Music on my Electric Bike! 

The 101 Freeway jammed as usual.  I own the road with Dasher.

By: JJ Hoffman

My husband loves music. He is always turning me on to some amazing new artist that I never would have known about were it not for him. His favorites are not often in the mainstream and I don't have the time or the inclination to search out these hidden gems, so lucky me, I have him as my musical guide through the 21st century. Lucky for both of us, we live in LA where so many great artists are available to melt our faces off.

MY IZIP E3 DASH ELECTRIC BIKE! 

The 101 Freeway jammed as usual.  I own the road with Dasher.

By: JJ Hoffman

I am one of the fortunate.  I live and work in one of the most beautiful, exciting cities in the world, Los Angeles.  The City of Angels.  The city tied up in ribbons of freeways, loaded with cars.  But as I said, I am fortunate, because I live and work in this great city and I get around on a bicycle.

But not just any bike. Starting now, I zip around on an IZIP E3 Dash, an electric black beauty that gets me from here to there no sweat!  I mean that literally, no sweat.

Ride an eBike 

Quisque id mi a ante suscipit tempor fermentum

Have you been considering buying an eBike, but haven’t gone through with it yet? Have you been intimidated by the eBike price tag?

Sure, maybe you already have a car. You probably drive your car to work or school, and although the gas prices are cringe-worthy, your monthly car expenses don’t cost the same as an eBike… or do they? AAA conducted a study which revealed that the cost of owning and operating a car in the United States averages at about $9,122 a year. This cost is based off of the average American, driving a medium-sized sedan about 15,000 miles a year. You don’t even want to know how much it costs to be driving an SUV or a minivan!
