We're Growing! Become a trip coordinator
Many E-bike Lovers would like us to organize weekly e-biking events. It is a great idea, but we need your help.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to coordinate bike rides. It is easy with our turn-by-turn directions and GPS files. Yes, you can do it.
Get on your electric bicycle - E-bike and join others in exploring the DC metropolitan area. We use our electric bicycles between 15-25 miles (sometimes longer) in DC, Virginia, and Maryland. We normally start from Peirce Mill in Rock Creek Park, Fletcher's Cove, Haines Point, or another park in the District. We also e-bike outside the District within an hour's drive from DC on longer trails.

This is an easy-going group and we are not training for the Olympics. We use our electric bicycles to bike around 12 mph and enjoy navigating the hillsides with our modern marvels of transport technology. The group is a great way to share your experience with an electric bicycle - E-bike.
Everyone is welcome, including riders on non-assisted bikes.
Plan 2-3 hours for each trip. You can stop at any time and return home. There is no requirement to finish the trip. We organize the trips to have fun, to be outdoors, to get exercise, and meet other wonderful people.
Normally, we will wait at some points of interest to give slower riders an opportunity to catch up. On nice weather days, we plan for lunch halfway through the trip. This is another great opportunity for riders to catch up with the group.
A great opportunity to learn more about E-bikes
Learn more about electric bicycles - E-bikes from those who actually use them daily or weekly. What is their experience? What to avoid when you are in the market for an(other) electric bicycle - E-bike? How to manage batteries? How to integrate your electric bicycle - E-bike with navigation systems? How to secure your electric bicycle - E-bike with locks and register it online? These are just some of the questions you may ask other members while we peddle with electric bicycles - E-bikes.
I have no Electric Bicycle - E-bike. Am I welcome to join this group?
Absolutely. Everyone is welcome, even if you do not ride an electric Bicycle - E-bike.
Weather and cancellation
There is never a bad biking day, there are only bad biking clothes. We plan to bike year-round, also in the winter (but within reason). With the right clothing and protective gear, this can be a great experience.
What you need to know
We always follow traffic rules and stop for stop signs. Safety and fun first.
We will use biking lanes (class I permissible) as much as possible, but will frequently ride on roads with other traffic. You need to feel comfortable doing this.
You join us at your own risk and you are responsible for your own safety.
You cannot sell merchandise or engage in any commercial activity during events and through our online platforms, including MeetUp and Facebook unless this is authorized by EBL. You cannot contact other members to solicit merchandise of any kind using our systems.
We may organize lectures on electric bicycles - E-bikes with specialists, test rides, and organize day-long biking (out of town) trips once COVID 19 is under control. This will also depend on the size of this group.
If you post photos on our Meetup page, you give us permission to use them in any EBL-related publications.
Participation is free. If we organize extracurricular activities, we will inform you of any costs involved.
