If you’re idea of fun is bicycling through rush hour traffic at breakneck speed, then this blogpost is for you! I took the Gocycle e-bike for a spin when I was at the Frozen Fountain store in Amsterdam during Elle Festival. Yes, you read that correctly. One of the Netherlands’ leading interior design stores sells bikes. Well, just the Gocycle actually – which goes to show you that this is not just any old e-bike. Speaking of old, I always thought that e-bikes were for old people to be honest. Not anymore. The Gocycle is everything I’m looking for in a bike. First and foremost, this baby is FAST. It was my first time on an electric bicycle and so it was a new experience to pedal slowly but ride really fast. I only spent about ten minutes on the Gocycle, but with a range of more than sixty kilometers you could definitely use it for your daily commute without arriving at the office all sweaty and smelly. Also, the Gocycle is so light that I can carry it upstairs to my apartment. A big advantage, since bikes get stolen in a New York minute in my neighborhood. And last but not least, the Gocycle looks sleek and stylish. What more do you want?
If you’re in the Netherlands, be sure to go to the Frozen Fountain store on Prinsengracht 645 in Amsterdam to take the Gocycle for a spin. And if you do, tell them I said hi!
Here I am, getting some explanation on how you can change the Gocycle settings with a special app. Fancy!
Watch out, Amsterdam! I’m riding a Gocycle – FAST!
And we’re back again! I look kind of hyper in this picture, don’t you think? I guess that’s what the Gocycle did with me.
