Bewegen Test Ride

Bewegen Test Ride

Cities with successful bike-share systems have already seen how much these can democratize cycling and erode the old stereotypes of cyclists. With this comes revitalized city centers that are full of life and activity. Bewegen’s pedal-assist solution is set to continue this trend by attracting a larger cross section of the population. No matter how young or old, level of fitness, how smartly or casually dressed or how flat or hilly the terrain, anyone able to pedal a bike can enjoy the freedom and benefits offered by this new-take on an old mode of transport.

Bewegen’s First Demonstration

Bewegen demonstrated a prototype, for the very first time, at the Intelligent Mobility + BUGA conference held on October 28th and 29th in Aveiro, Portugal. Attendees enjoyed their road tests of the electric-assist bike and provided positive feedback on the overall experience.

Associated with to the final meeting of the SITE project, which was also held in Aveiro, this conference aimed to discuss the role of smart ticketing as a tool to connect the different modes of transportation. The conference was also a pretext to discuss the regeneration and evolution of the BUGA bicycle library initiative that was launched in 2000 with 200 bikes in Aveiro.

Over 120 delegates were present from many countries, such as Portugal, Ireland, Spain, France and the United-Kingdom. Bike-share suppliers were also present at this exhibition that was jointly organized by the City of Aveiro and the Technology Platform for Bike and Soft Mobility of the University of Aveiro.

Bewegen will also be organizing a demonstration tour throughout Portugal shortly.
