Making Quality Affordable

Buy an electric bike in Victoria BC, quality that won't break the bank. Electric bikes by Ride the Glide

Electric bikes are an awesome revolution in cycling. But electric bikes in Victoria, BC can be very cost prohibitive, with most bikes starting at $2,500. We strive to make owning an electric bike affordable for the everyday people, without sacrificing quality.

Contrary to what you, or people you know, may think they are not cheating! Not by a long shot. Electric bikes aren’t just for the less physically fit. They are great intermediary between driving a car and riding a bike for getting around and commuting to work. You can get as much exercise as you want without needing to get sweaty or exhausted if you don’t want to. And you can always peddle it like a regular bike without any electric assist.

We believe everyone should do all that they can to reduce their carbon footprint. And trading in your car for an electric bike on short trips is a great way to do just that. Not to mention in the long run it will save you tons of money on fuel and service.

Get a 5% rebate on all electric mobility devices using promo code: codegreen

Many of you may know that bikes are exempt from the 7% PST, however this does not apply to their electric counterparts. Despite lobbying from special interest groups the government does not seem like it will be looking to include electric bikes any time soon, if ever. However we know just how expensive it is to buy a new electric bike, and for many people who want to go green it is cost prohibitive. And we don’t think it should be.

That’s why we now offer a 5% green rebate on all of our electric transportation devices. That’s equivalent to the GST! The green rebate is instantly applied against the purchase price and you don’t have to wait weeks or even months for a cheque to arrive in the mail. We want to do everything in our power to make sure that you aren’t barred from owning an electric bike because of the price.
