If you’ve been driving around Boca in your temperature controlled bubble of a car, it’s time to see things from a new angle.
Trapped in your car with the windows rolled up, you’re missing out on the sheer exhilaration of traveling on an ebike – and with the new Boca business, Ebikes2you, it’s never been more convenient to get out there.
Ebikes2you will deliver an ebike to your door, especially awesome for our tourists staying at our hotels, but equally fun for residents ready to tour their City and experience it in a whole new way, they even offer exciting tours.
“We love seeing how people respond to the ebikes and how invigorated they are when they return from one of our rental adventures,” said Don Moore, owner. “I’ve never had anyone not come back with a big wide grin after riding our ebikes and that makes it all worthwhile to know that they have enjoyed themselves, had some fun, reconnected with their surroundings and the people with them in a meaningful way.”
Ebikes allow you to peddle to your heart’s content, or for those times when you’d rather keep your composure, it’s as simple as flicking a switch to go into electric bike mode and zip around without the cardio workout.
There’s nothing like two-wheeling it, especially in South Florida where the weather is ideal for biking – the only problem is, when you get to your destination, you’re a sweaty, smelly mess.
That’s one reason Moore switched from a conventional bike to an ebike. His wife Shontelle had an ebike and they’d enjoy evenings out, biking down to Mizner Park for dinner. Except Don had to peddle hard to keep up with Shontelle, who was just cruising along, there was also a big difference when they arrived at their destination.
“I needed to cool down, but Shontelle…her makeup was fine, her hair was blowing in the wind, she had a smile on her face – I was a sweaty mess,” he said.
Ebikes2you was actually conceived on one of their vacations.
“We had first rented ebikes when we moved here from Arizona about five and a half years ago and fell in love with them for getting around town in East Boca,” said Moore. “My wife Shontelle and I were at a weekend retreat in Delray Beach and wanted to rent a couple of ebikes and use it to go to dinner downtown as well as up and down the beach so we could leave the hassle of traffic and parking at the hotel. We found no service that could do what we wanted and the idea was born there.”
Ebikes allow you to ditch the car and experience the great outdoors – the sights, the sounds, the smells while you travel to your destination.
“I call it the fun factor,” said Moore. “You get to take in a lot more than when you’re driving in your car. You’re more aware of your surroundings, you experience more, you stop for things that you wouldn’t in a car. Like if you see a beautiful piece of art or a statue, you can stop and enjoy it. You don’t have to worry about a street closing or parking. You just twist the throttle and you’re off. The wind in your face, taking in the weather, you’re in control. You can be lazy and not peddle, or go for it. We show our clients how to use them – and they’re off – you’ll feel like a kid again.”
And if your rental experience is so much fun you don’t want it to end; they also sell them. Moore takes pride in the fact that most of his ebikes are made right here.
“All ebikes aren’t made equal and some ride better than others, but ours are world class with most of them being manufactured here in the USA, in South Florida.”
The folks at Ebikes2you are well versed in all things two-wheeled.
“I have a background in mountain biking that started when we lived in Arizona and so I’m very particular about the bike side of our ebikes,” said Moore. “They’re fun to ride in electric mode, but they’re also great bicycles in and of themselves, and we pride ourselves on that. Our area of expertise is in mobile touring, electric bike selection and training, corporate tours and events and electric bike sales.”
Starting a new business is never easy. However, Moore said that the combination of guidance from Boca’s Chamber and the City has made it as easy as riding a bike.
“I like the pro-business attitude in Boca,” said Moore. “The Chamber of Commerce and the City of Boca Raton and the council members have been very supportive and Boca also has GREAT streets and infrastructure for the most part for cyclists including ebikers. Plus, we have a beautiful stretch of biking along the A1A connecting us with both Deerfield Beach and Delray Beach which have great places to explore easily by ebikes as well.”
Having great scenery to cruise along to is one big benefit, but offering hands-on customer care is another. The Moore’s always make sure clients are trained on the bikes giving them that extra confidence, ensuring a more fun experience. They’re also flexible in equipment drop-offs and pick-ups.
Don and Shontelle are geared to cater to their clientele, giving them the competitive edge.
“It sounds like a cliché, but truly our customer service sets us apart from the competition and the fact that we deliver and pick up the ebikes at our customer’s convenience is what makes us unique,” said Moore. “We are a small family run business, so we hope to have our clients feel like an extension of our own family. We treat our clients very well and try to go above and beyond to make their experience awesome.”
