It would seem the Netherlands has some catching up to do.
On September 15th, Lime and Rad Power Bikes teamed up to help Cascade Bicycle Club set a new e-bike world record.
The event, which hosted 405 electric bike riders from around the region, officially brought the title home from Europe to Seattle, WA. It also helped cement a strong community-focused relationship between Lime and the Emerald City that has been developing for over a year.
“Lime was instrumental in getting us to the big number,” said Brent Tongco, senior comms director at Cascade Bicycle Club. “They provided 150 Lime-E bikes at the event for people wanting to join the record-breaking ride.”
Riders from across Seattle, some with pets in tow, easily surpassed the former Dutch world record of 272 electric bicyclists in a single ride. According to Tongco, the outing was organized as a “celebration of the growing e-bike market” becoming more and more integrated into the broader cycling community.
With over 15,000 members, the Seattle-based Cascade is the largest statewide bicycle organization in the country.
