riding a pushbike is not just for kids
Commuting via pedal power is a standard form of transport in most countries besides Australia. Riding a push bike, scooter or skateboard has numerous health and environmental benefits. The Noosa region offers a range of fantastic trails and bike paths for commuters and recreational use. Zero Emissions Noosa is also championing a Bicycle Pathway Hotspot Project which sees community riders documenting trouble spots on their journey’s and uploading them to the project map.
An e-bike research project is currently underway at CQ University’s Noosa Campus. The project is assessing the potential for e-bikes to reduce car travel in the Noosa Shire and also assessing the health and wellbeing impacts related to e-bike usage. The project is being undertaken in partnership with Zero Emissions Noosa Inc and is sponsored by Giant Bicycles. Acknowledgements to Noosa Cycling.

Zero Emissions Noosa provided around 100 people with the opportunity to test ride e-bikes across the Noosa Shire. An e-bike is an assisted system, this means that you can utilise the power from the rechargeable battery to assist hill climbing and long distance rides. the perfect bike for the commuter and recreational rider.
Zero Emissions Noosa Cycle Workshops
Zero Emissions Noosa also provided a series of traditional bicycle workshops designed to help riders maintain and service their bicycles.
An e-bike is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor which offers propulsion assistance to a rider as required. This makes commuter riding far easier as the battery can assist up hill riding and riding long distances. Most electric bikes use lithium-ion battery packs, which are rechargeable via a standard power socket. Most e-bikes will have one battery system on board, however, some touring and commuter e-bikes are capable of taking two, even three battery packs at a time.
