A Nanaimo businessman who sells electric bikes wants to see his rigs allowed on trails and city parks.

"I want to turn Nanaimo green," said Gordie Ludvigson, owner and manager of Nanhong Trading Co., whose powered rides are both noiseless and eco-friendly.

"You're finding environmentalists, such as myself, that just cry out to stop using fossil fuels and are sick and tired of the whole darned thing, and I am taking a personal crusade to turn Nanaimo green," Ludvigson said.
