"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best"

Ernest Hemingway

"I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. Humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing about a third of the way down the list. That didn't look so good, but then someone at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle and a man on a bicycle blew the condor away.”— Steve Jobs

A bike that has pedal assist up to 28mph has additional requirements (helmet) and restrictions (not allowed on bike paths).

How We Got Our Name:

Part of the joy of starting a business is to come up with a name that reflects what you do. Ours only does it secretly. So I will let you in on our secret! I loved the Jetsons when I was younger. It was so futuristic. I wondered what kind of bike would they ride if they were here today. Of course they would ride an electric bike! And they lived in Orbit City. Thus, Orbit City Bikes!
