Perth to Sydney - 5,600 km

June 12, 2018

The Ride

Continuing the eZeebike tradition of epic electric bicycle tours, we’re off for a big ride from Perth to Sydney from Aug 1 – Sep 14, 2013. We’ll be riding around the WA coast, then across the Nullarbor to Port Augusta, up to the Flinders Ranges, then Adelaide. Then hopefully via Melbourne and up to Albury, Kosciusko National Park for a few hills, connecting to an off road adventure through Namadgi National Park to bring our e-bikes into Canberra, then on to Australia’s spiritual home of the epic electric bicycle, Glow Worm Bicycles for a party on Friday Sep 13th from 5pm.

 All welcome to join in on the ride at various points along the way including the last section in to Sydney. We’d also be stoked to play show and tell with our equipment to any bike shops or bike groups along the way and we would definitely appreciate hot meals and warm beds! Just contact us with ideas!

 

The Riders

The riding will be a party of 3 – head tech and tech head Abraham and product testing specialist Maurice, both of Glow Worm Bicycles and the CEO of eZeebike, rider of the famed 3000km offroad e-bike trip in Africa and rider of the Silk Road from Shanghai to Kashgar ( Kashi ), Wai Won Ching.

 

 1st stop - Vineyard & wine tasting

 

The Bikes and Gadgets

Abraham and Maurice will both be on the newly released (in Australia) eZee Titanium Torq and Wai Won Ching will be on the eZee Expedir cargo bike, which will be carrying more than its fair share of food, water, camping supplies, batteries and chargers and will thus become in just 6 weeks, the most tested and challenged electric cargo bicycle on the market! We’ll also be testing out the newly released 36V 28Ah battery. For full specifications see our equipment page.
