To preface the story we'd like to share, you should know that here at Electra we draw inspiration from everything around us. This includes tacos from the shop down the street from the office to old school auto trends. This story is about an Electra fan and her bike, Sunshine.
Melissa was recently given a Townie 7D from her husband, and she's in love. Here's her story:
You guys, I got a bike!
Not just any bike, my dream bike. The one I've been eyeballing and dreaming about for 8 years.
We consider ourselves pretty lucky. Almost every day through emails, Facebook or Instagram posts, we hear about how much Electra owners enjoy their bikes. Let's be honest... we've seen it all. From engagement photos to wedding ceremonies to birthday parties for Townies, you guys keep surprising us with great stories. Whether it's a basket, bell or bike, we love seeing all of your #ElectraLove.
Sometimes we hear crazy awesome stories from Electra fans. This story belongs to a lucky Townie® 7D owner, Amy. Enjoy!
Can you feel that? It's officially spring, and we are counting down the days until summer. In Encinitas, you'll catch us riding to the local surf spots - Swamis and Moonlight Beach - but we wanted to know where your favorite riding destination is when the sun is shining. We asked friends and fans of Electra and here is what you told us:
42% said "Unhurry up." - I love riding around my city.
Dear Electra Bike -
First and foremost, THANK YOU! You have the most awesome bikes. Six years ago in July, I bought my Townie. Best purchase EVER!! Seriously, the world should be riding Townies.
We all know biking is fun, but turns out it’s much, much more. For Henry, his Townie is his favorite way to get to and from work, run errands and stay healthy. With more than 10,000 miles to date, not even the hot Arizona sun can stop him from taking his Townie out on the town. Here’s a few words of wisdom from Henry himself.
