Electric Bike Patrol by CAA Quebec for my Eco-Friendly Watch

CAA patroller on bike

I spotted a two-wheeled CAA patroller on my way home. This is the first year that CAA Quebec ran this program. It is only available during the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal, which is ending tonight. The bike patroller that I spoke to enjoys it very much.

Next experience will be in Quebec City

The two-wheeled patrollers will be active during the peak hours of the Quebec City’s Summer Festival. They will cover the area around the National Assembly and Battlefields Park July 16 to 19, 2009. This way the patrollers do not lose time in heavy traffic. The idea is born by noting that 60% of last year Emergency Road Service assistance calls during the 400th Anniversary of Quebec City could have been handled without a tow truck.

The bike patrol is equipped to repair flat tires, deliver fuel, provide battery boosts and unlock vehicles. I think it should be a service available all summer long.

    Hi, interesting topic – I have just bought an electric bike that I use to get to work everyday. I Just plug in at work to recharge it and then cycle home.
    Absolutely love the bike, it was cheap and simple to use. I got it from http://www.elecbikeco.com they seemed good but I am sure there are many other companies out there too.
    Good luck
