SEATTLE (Feb. 26, 2020) -- Rad Power Bikes, a Seattle-based electric bike brand, has renewed its partnership with Cascade Bicycle Club, the nation's largest state-wide bicycle nonprofit, to continue supporting efforts that expand bicycling in Washington state, grow the region's cycling infrastructure, and generate awareness about the benefits of electric bikes.

Rad Power Bikes will contribute $60,000 to support Cascade's policy initiatives aimed at expanding bicycle infrastructure and protected bike lanes in Seattle. The nonprofit will also use the financial support from Rad Power Bikes to organize community rides and open streets events.

"Ebikes are an innovative technology that help more people discover the joy of bicycling. This renewed support from Rad Power Bikes shows they are working hard to make our state a safer, more convenient and fun place to ride," said Cascade Bicycle Club Executive Director Richard Smith. "They are a fantastic community partner and they support our mission of improving lives through bicycling."

"All of us at Rad Power Bikes are committed to investing in bicycling advocacy and infrastructure improvements, and Cascade has been a tremendously valuable partner in this mission," said Mike Radenbaugh, Rad Power Bikes' founder and CEO. "We're proud to extend this partnership and look forward to continuing to work alongside Cascade to expand ebike awareness and accessibility across the state."

In addition to its financial support, Rad Power Bikes will donate four ebikes to Cascade to use as part of the group's fundraising. The consumer-direct brand will also support Cascade's policy efforts by supplying ebikes for community leaders to ride during a trip to Vancouver, BC, to learn about the successes of the Canadian city's urban bike network.

Cascade is a strong supporter of ebikes and allows them on all of the organization's group rides and events, local laws permitting. In 2018, Rad Power Bikes and Cascade teamed up to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for most ebikes on a single ride with 405 participants.

Headquartered in Seattle's historic Ballard neighborhood, Rad Power Bikes is North America's largest ebike brand with more than 100,000 owners across 30 countries. The consumer-direct company offers a full lineup of ebikes packed with power, comfort and utility for both personal and commercial use. For more information, visit radpowerbikes.com
