E-bikes: The future of urban mobility

May 30, 2019 at 6 pm, the House of Sustainable Development, Vélo Québec and CRE-Montréal will be hosting the conference E-bikes: The future of urban mobility during the Go Bike Montréal Festival.

Electric-assist bikes are revolutionizing urban travel. In the Netherlands, e-bike sales already account for 50% of the market. The wave has spread to Europe and China and is about to hit North America, mainly Québec.

No longer deterred by long distances or steep slopes, more and more people will consider commuting by bike. This new reality should influence infrastructure designers and promote, among other things, the development of decent bike parking facilities. Ready for the revolution?


Civil engineer and professor at the University of Tennessee, Christopher Cherry is an international authority on active transportation and emerging vehicle technologies. His work focuses on safety, economic and environmental issues related to sustainable mobility.
