Folding Electric Bikes

Folding Electric Bikes

Unlike FBOs in the United States, where crew cars are plentiful, many Canadian airports rely on taxis and Uber to get you into town for that $100 hamburger.  Folding bicycles have been around for decades.  My first folding bike was made by Fuji, weights 45 pounds, with full size 26 inch tires. It fits easily into the trunk of a car, but required some serious effort to get it into the back of a Cessna 182. Polymer Lithium Ion battery technology has changed the off-airport transportation capabilities.  The evolution has seen small folding bikes, designed with small wheels and electric assisted pedal bikes to all electric bikes.  With technology concepts taken from the automotive industry, lightweight all electric bikes are able to perform with surprising speed and agility.
