Fleeing winter's cold? Look for us soon in the Caribbean. Escaping summer's heat? Check us out along Alaska's coast in 2015.
ePEDALER's mission statement is simple: We want to get more of us off our car seats more often and onto bicycle saddles for 'fun, fitness and financial gain.'
Ever ridden an electric bicycle? Probably not; largely because unless you live in Asia or maybe Europe, chances are you didn't even know they exist, must less had the opportunity to try one.
ePEDALER International, aims to change this. We want to give tens of thousands of people the opportunity every day to ride an e-bike.
It's really very simple. We have developed an innovative rental model that allows Independent Operators, at little expense to them, to provide cruise passengers and vacationers in high traffic, highly seasonal destination locations with a complete solar-charged electric bicycle 'pop-up' rental shop. We provide the hardware and software, they provide the location and staff. We attract more customers for them and share the revenue. It's just that simple.
And when the season ebbs, ePEDALER relocates the 'shop', maximizing our equipment utilization rates and income potential for our investors. It's a win3 for all; especially for our renters, who get to experience, many for the very first time, the thrill of 'Riding the Current.'

- Collaborative consumption - The sharing of physical assets as an economic and ethical response to the consumerism of the last half century3.
- Eco-tourism - The sustainable pursuit of life-enriching experiences in place of an unsustainable and often unfulfilling accumulation of physical assets.4.
