Harmonica Whiz Miles Howe Begins Electric Bike Ride Across Canada

8 September 2010 48,677 views 2 Comments

Harmonica Whiz and sustainable transportation advocate Miles Howe is heading across Canada on an electric bicycle – an eZee Bike Torq electric bicycle to be more specific. In tow, Miles will have a small trailer with his musical gear and some supplies he will need as he cycles between towns and venues across Canada.
The trip started in early September when Miles recycled his aging car using the Retire Your Ride Program

Miles then approached the folks at eZee Bike Canada who agreed to set him up with an eZee Torq electric bicycle, several batteries, and chargers which would be required for his long distance trip. The eZee bikes have proven their endurance in Africa on the Katima to Cape ride in 2009 and the folks at eZee were eager to test their product on a grueling ride in Canadian conditions where hills, cold & wet weather, and heavier loads were going to be encountered.

Miles will be blogging on http://blog.ezeebike.ca Follow his progress and check out one of his musical dates.

    So cool! Enjoy your tour, Miles! To help others have access to bicycles too….eat chocolate!

    The Bicycle Factory is giving Canadians the opportunity to help send up to 5,000 bikes to Ghana – by eating chocolate! Participants also have a chance to win a trip to Ghana to help deliver the bikes. Details are online now at  http://thebicyclefactory.ca

    Sounds like an adventure, I drove a scooter style e-bike west from southern ontario and back. I had a 10 amp\hr battery charger and a honda 1000 watt gas generator as a back rest. Coolest trip i have done yet. Best of luck to you. ps bring spare tubes for your tires saskatchewan is hard on tires.
