NYBC honors and welcomes corporate partners like Raleigh Electric and their forward thinking President, Larry Pizzi. NYBC was presented with this spanking new Misceo-ie Electric Bike, to aid us in further championing the 2017 NYS Legislative Campaign for the legalization of Electric Bikes in NYS. We will be able to take this bike for demos at the Capital (look for future photos!!) to familiarize the elected officials in Albany on the benefits of these fabulous and ground breaking bikes.

“At Raleigh Electric, we are helping to transition the bicycle from recreation to transportation,” said Larry Pizzi, Raleigh Electric’s President and the Chair of the Bicycle Products Suppliers Association E-bike committee. “For more than 25 years, I’ve read surveys about why people don’t ride or ride more often and its frequently stated because it’s too far or because they get hot and sweaty. With our Raleigh and IZIP E-bikes, electric-assist bikes help to overcome all those objections and to get more Americans out of their cars and onto a bike.”

Well, Larry, we agree with you. We thank you for your corporate stewardship and generosity.
