NEWPORT, Ky. (WXIX) — If you’re considering buying an e-bike or e-bike, but they’re out of your price range, a new discount program may be right for you.
the Devou Good Foundation is offering 100 $500 rebates on select e-bikes.
“It can really replace a car and give you the distance you need,” said Reser Bike Outfitters Owner Jason Reser.
Not only is Reser the owner of Reser Bicycle Outfitters in Newport, but he also owns an e-bike himself.
Reser bikes to work, runs errands and picks up her child from school.
These bikes have grown in popularity in recent years for several reasons: gas prices are higher, new and used cars are more expensive, and e-bikes make it easier to get around the hilly terrain of the Tri-State.
“The big advantage of commuting on an e-bike is that you get some moderate exercise,” Reser says, “it’s not super intense. A large percentage of cancers and heart disease can be prevented with just moderate exercise. You don’t need to sweat, but an e-bike can get your heart pumping and make a big difference in your life.
Bikes battery life fluctuates, but you can go about 20-60 miles on a single charge.
“And that can give someone access to get to work or to get to a job that’s further away from a bus route or further away from their home,” Reser continues, “and they’re still exercising on Their path.”
The Devou Good Foundation now offers an incentive program to anyone in parts of northern Kentucky and Cincinnati.
Bikes can be purchased locally or online but should be between $1,199 and $2,500.
One adult per household living in nine northern Kentucky communities and 10 Cincinnati ZIP codes will receive a $500 rebate.
If you’re not sure if this type of bike is for you, you can try one out by renting one through Red Bikes.
