I’m curious what BP Forum users think about the fact that e-bike riders have very little to no publicly-accessible places to charge their bikes. This is a topic that has come up when talking about the newly opened Gateway Green - a park in the middle of I-84/I-205 where there is zero driving access. A friend of BikePortland, Shawne M., said he wants to bike his e-cargo bike and family to the park but since they live in southwest it would be a big journey on his one battery. He wanted to charge at the park, but it turns out there are no outlets.
Parks Bureau says they didn’t consider e-bike charging in the initial plans. Now Shawne is trying to hustle and maybe bring an e-bike charger to the park.
Seems to me we could use a network of bike chargers around the city.
Any ebikers on here care to chime in as I develop a story about this? Thanks in advance!
