In conjunction with staff from BOLT and RoamNRV, the Town of Christiansburg Thursday displayed the first of its fleet of e-bikes that will eventually replace all of the town’s pedal bikes.
Seventy-five of the new e-assist bikes that each feature a motor to help bike riders navigate the area’s hills and other stressful terrain will be in operation today, June 5, according to Cat Woodson, the operations manager for RoamNRV. After that, the rollout to the full fleet of 150 bikes will proceed as hubs become available.
Woodson said Thursday that hubs are already available at the Christiansburg Rec Center and the mall, in Blacksburg, and on the Virginia Tech campus. Future hub sites include the aquatic center and the town hall, Woodson said.
