Get a hands-on feel for electric vehicles and e-bikes this weekend in Saanich (CONTEST)


This summer, the Capital Regional District (CRD) has been inviting residents across the region to get a hands-on feel for electric vehicles (EVs), e-bikes and EV chargers at a few different community events.

Currently, transportation accounts for more than half of our region’s greenhouse gas emissions, and transitioning from fossil-fueled vehicles to electric and other low-emission modes of transportation makes a huge difference when it comes to climate change. 

The first two Charge Your Ride events took place in Langford and Sidney in July, with the e-bike test riding being particularly popular, as well as the opportunity to test drive EV models like the Lucid Air.

This weekend’s Charge Your Ride test drive and ride event is Saturday, August 13th at Camosun’s Landsdowne campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Attendees will have an opportunity to experience both electric vehicles and e-bikes first-hand to help them decide if these technologies work for their lifestyles.

They’ll also have a chance to enter to win a number of great prizes, including a FREE CUBE e-bike that will be given away at the end of summer.

We’ve also partnered with the CRD to give away a FREE car detailing to one lucky winner—and you’ll find those contest details below.

Additionally, the CRD is offering free e-bike skills courses throughout the summer in partnership with Capital Bike.
