Certified Electric Bike Specialists Has Grand Opening July 2

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Certified Electric Bike Specialists and the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce will celebrate the opening of EBS’s new location in the Southside’s renovated Soho Building on Wednesday at noon.  The new store at 45 East Main St. is 50 percent larger than the old location on Frasier to accommodate the growing demand for electric bikes, rentals, service and parts in Chattanooga. 

The public is invited to join in celebrating this latest addition to Chattanooga’s growing Southside.  There will be refreshments, demo rides, giveaways and a free drawing for a group eBike outing.  Easy Motion eBikes will be on site with their new line available for test rides. 

Owned by hometown brothers Garnet and Chandlee Caldwell, who have both lived and worked in China, EBS has been an electric bicycle retailer since 2009.  In addition to the largest assortment of brands within 500 miles and an e-bike repair department, EBS also offers a rental fleet of eBikes for exploring the city.

Electric bikes allow riders (young and old) to pedal farther, faster and easier than ever  –  while providing clean, quiet, economical and fun transportation, said officials.  Already commonplace in Europe and Asia, the benefits of eBikes are catching on in the U.S., and eBikes could become a jewel in Chattanooga’s “environmental city” crown.

EBS is open 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Wednesday-Sunday.

Roy Exum: Amputee Team Wins Relay

As a news junkie there isn’t a lot that gets past me in my morning reading, yet I had no idea there was a relay race in Chattanooga two weekends ago. Maybe that’s why 1,500 people ran away and never came back – the finish line was in Nashville. How the Ragnar Relays work is pretty simple. The organizers pick two cities that are about 200 miles apart and then 12-to-14 runners ... (click for more)
