Though they look like ordinary bikes and trikes, with handle bars, rubber wheels and cushioned seats, one feature makes some of ding! Bikes’ vehicles stand out: the electricity.

The public can check some of these electric bicycles and tricycles out at the “Electric Bicycle & Tricycle” event on Thursday, Feb. 7 from 4-8 p.m. at the Downtown Winter Park Farmer’s Market, located at 200 W. New England Ave.

Those who attend will not only have the opportunity to test-ride some of the latest electric bikes from brands like Polaris and EG-Bikes, which can range from $1,400 to $2,000, but they can also have their own bikes motorized for a fee of $690 or talk to ding!
