ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY GOALS
Climate change and global warming are serious issues and we all need to play our roles to solve these matters to keep our planet greener and healthier for the current and next generations. Riding an electric bike not only brings you joy and fun but also improves your health and fitness. Gas and diesel are costly in most countries and have carbon emission. In fact, by using an electric bike that is equipped with a rechargeable battery, you will save your money in the long term. But the most important part is that you have an important role in cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions and help to control global climate change, reducing air pollutants and decreasing noise pollution and congestion.
THIS IS THE STORY OF VAHID, VBIKE CO-FOUNDER
I was born in 1970 and had the chance to grow up in a family that was professionals in electronics, mechanics, and new technologies. When I was a child (age of 8) it was my hobby to spend time on electronic kits with my dad who was a telecommunication engineer. He taught me about low voltage electrical circuit and components, battery and capacitor structures and differences, electromotor, and generator structure and operation.
I remember when I was 10, we made FM transmission with spare electronic parts and handmade copper board. When I was 11 (1981) I used two 3V DC micro motor to motorize my toy car. Later we added a transmitter to make it remote control. I never forget how much I was encouraged by my parents and I can say It was the start of my journey toward technology.
In 1985 I tried to motorize my bicycle, using a 12V, 10Ah motorcycle battery to power my crankset. It was a good experience but the DC motor was weak and I needed to pedal simultaneously to ride the bike. Since then I was always thinking about ways to combine new technologies with a traditional bike design to make longer journeys more enjoyable.
After I got my Ph.D. and immigrated to Canada in 2013 with 20 years of experience, my wife and I decided to found vBike Canada to make our dream come true. Our family business took a step forward with the graduation of our daughter from UofT Mechanical Engineering department and start of her graduate studies in Electrified Autonomous Vehicles at McMaster University.
I believe vBike Electric Bikes, is exactly what we were looking for. My colleagues and I do all our best to offer you one of the best electric bikes with great customer service in Canada.
