While we should appreciate our Earth every single day, tomorrow – Saturday, April 22, 2017 celebrates our planet with the official worldwide holiday Earth Day! Events and celebrations are hosted all over the globe to praise this beautiful planet and raise awareness on protecting, maintaining and creating a healthy and wonderful environment. EcoWatch published a cool article here that we agree would argue to ride a Lopifit instead of a car!
Lopifit US celebrates Earth Day 2017 proudly offering an eco-friendly micro-mobility alternative to automobiles. The Lopifit is an electric assisted treadmill and bike combined. The bike was invented in Holland with the objective to enjoy the outdoors while working out (not in the gym on a traditional treadmill) and the response of Lopifit has been positively overwhelming. The Lopifit bike provides low impact, high cardio exercise while you commute – healthy for you and healthy for the community! The Lopifit is a green alternative for your errand running and daily commute as the Lopifit is built with a Samsung lithium-ion rechargeable battery that will last up to 60 miles per charge and reaches speeds of 17 MPH. Lopifit, like other bicycles is easier to maneuver through heavy traffic areas in cities, campuses and tourist destinations and are much simpler to park needing less room plus, the Lopifit makes traveling fun while you enjoy the outdoors!
Lopifit bikes are now available in America, in our second year as the exclusive US distributors and growing dealers rapidly across the country. In the United States, there are various laws by city/ state in regards to cycling but the trend in eco-friendly travel continues to grow in regards to healthy, active living and protecting our environment and the Lopifit popularity is booming. According to the League of American Bicyclists, 40% of all trips in the U.S. are less than two miles, making biking a feasible and fun way to get to work and with the Lopifit’s electric assist you can go further, faster while staying fit and outside. With an increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation options, it’s not surprising that the number of e-bike commuters in the U.S. grows more and more annually. The unique design of the Lopifit bike, no pedals or seat, allow an alternative electric bike option for riders with joint issues, pain and other ailments preventing bike riding. These are small steps but positive strides that allow pedestrians, bikers, skateboarders and roller/inline skaters an opportunity to use the road. The Lopifit is classified as an electric bicycle and doesn’t require registration and as other bikes, permitted on bike lanes to zoom past cars in traffic and Lopifit can park anywhere a regular bike parks, often free and right at the front door of the destination.
