'Evelo' is an electric bicycle company that builds bikes for a less common group of riders: people aged 50 and over. Especially in urban centers, riding a bike to commute can be a daunting task, both in terms of effort and safety. Evelo's electric bicycles make it easier for older people to use the green and healthy form of transportation.

Though the typical bicycle rider is a young person, e-bike technology is actually far more amenable for older people. With an e-bike, riders can pedal as much or as little as they are able to without having to sacrifice speed or maneuverability. As such, Evelo electric bicycles are perfect for people who still want to get outside and move without having to worry about whether they'll have the energy for a long ride.
