A2B, Leading Electric Bike Manufacturer, Attempting To Break A Guinness World Records Title For The Longest Journey On An e-Bike


Award Winning A2B e-Bikes feature Lithium Ion Batteries, an Innovative Motor and Propulsion System

NEW YORK--July 3, 2013: A2B, leading electric bike manufacturer, announces their official participation in "Ride the Future Tour" – the largest green event and electric vehicle adventure of the year. A2B will provide various e-Bikes to daily cyclists in each city ready to ride through the country and accompany our official A2B rider to break the 1,912 miles Guinness World Records Title for the longest journey on an electric bike. The tour will kick off in Charleston, SC on July 4th and end at Google HQ in Mountain View, CA.

"With recent success during our three city re-launch events in the U.S., we are ecstatic to be the only electric bike manufacturer to partake in 'Ride the Future Tour'", said Fernando Kuefer, Hero Eco Ltd. General Manager. "What better way to promote the e-Bike movement than allowing cycling enthusiasts to be a part of The Electric Highway Ride with our very own high performance and innovative e-Bikes."

A2B offers consumers a wide range of premium e-Bikes giving users a high quality riding experience. From the revolutionary and stylish Alva+ to the portable and easy-to-fold Kuo, riders now have the option to pedal as they normally would or twist the throttle for an extra boost of power (up to 30 mph). Charge the battery for 3-4 hours and cyclists are ready to go.

"We are confident that our e-Bikes will break the 1,912 miles Guinness World Records Title accolade for the longest journey on an electric bike during the 'Ride The Future Tour' given its comfort, powerful features and battery life capacity," added Kuefer. "We're honored to be associated with other world renowned brands like Nissan Leaf and Zero Motorcycle to create this once in a lifetime experience for cyclists around the country."

It all began in 2011 with an inspired woman, Susan Jones, setting out to achieve her dream to break the Guinness World Record for the longest journey on an electric scooter. Today, it has become "Ride the Future Tour" motivating people to ride gas free and make the world greener. A2B is proud to provide consumers with eco-friendly products such as the e-Bikes and continues to support the transformation of American travel.

Stopping in over 44 cities, each electric highway will be approximately 85 miles long. Registered cyclists from each city will ride A2B e-Bikes just under 100 miles to benefit breast cancer research.
