When we created our e-bikes, we wanted to make them functional, fun, and a tool to help people commute and run their errands. We also wanted to empower people to go on adventures they might not otherwise be able to access. Our Oakland rider Jennifer perfectly melds the practical use with an explorer’s spirit. We sat down and chatted with her about […]

It has been about ten months since the Telegraph Bikeway first opened and data is just being released on how it’s introduction is affecting the surrounding community.

Brady and Christiana of Woodside, California are the very first owners of the GenZe e-scooter and the first members of the GenZe Thousand Mile Club. With those kind of credentials, it was only natural that they became the first people to be interviewed for our ongoing customer blog series. We got Brady on the phone and […]

The dictionary defines gratitude as: the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. In what it often perceived as a dog-eat-dog world, experiencing thankfulness and showing kindness are powerful ways to counteract this cold concept. We here at GenZe are so into having gratitude be part of our daily […]

They cruise up mountains, ride down roads less traveled, and do it all without spending a penny on gas, and with a low carbon footprint! We love seeing photos of our customers having a blast on two wheels, so we thought, […]

A lot of people ask how the GenZe 2.0 handles hills. Fortunately for us, most of Portland isn’t very hilly, however the hills we do have are nothing to shake a stick at. The GenZe 2.0 is designed to take hills of up to a 20% grade without a problem – so I decided to […]

We’re one week into the Lloyd E-Fleet pilot program, and one week closer to our current goal: taking over Portland’s Lloyd District with E-bikes! As far as Portland neighborhoods go, the Lloyd District is an anomaly. Previously, Lloyd has been primarily a business district in the middle of residential and mixed-use neighborhoods. The district is […]

Sterling coffee 1

Living in Portland offers some great food and beverage perks. From craft beer to fantastic food, virtually every neighborhood is a microcosm of artisanal consumables. My personal favorite indulgence is coffee. The coffee community has been thriving since the early nineties, and Portland was at the forefront of third wave coffee roasting. On a sunny […]

4Clinton St. Records + ebike (1)

Up in Portland, we are loving our new storefront location on the corner of SE Grand and Main. To celebrate, I decided to go for a ride on one of our e-bikes—from our new digs all the way to Mt. Tabor! The ride was fantastic, and I got to hit some of my favorite spots […]
