Tri-Cities’ First-Ever E-Bike Expo Planned at Vista Field
FREE Event September 14, 2023
Kennewick, Wash. – Thursday, September 14, 2023, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Vista Field in Kennewick will be the host site for a FREE family-friendly e-bike expo. The expo offers a chance to comparison shop, and learn about rules, regulations, and the various classifications of e-bikes from industry experts. You will learn more about how to be a responsible E-Bike rider. You will also have a chance to register your bike for free as part of a stolen bike recovery system. Local vendors will offer bikes for sale and provide demonstration models so people can ride different e-bikes in a closed loop on-site.
Food vendors include Rollin Ice Cream, Tumbleweeds Food Truck, Kettle Corn Factory and Doggie Style Gourmet. Benton Franklin Health District is sponsoring a “Traffic Garden” to help young riders learn bike safety with riding tips and a kid-safe “practice route,” and free children’s helmets (while supplies last). Ben Franklin Transit will have a bus on display to showcase its improved bike racks, larger wheel receivers and easier loading. Guest speakers and coupons for professional coaching will also be available.
A valid driver’s license/identification is required for e-bike demos, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own bicycle helmets. In addition, participating minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The E-Bike Expo will take place at Vista Field, 6600 West Deschutes Avenue, Kennewick, Washington, near the intersection of Crosswind Boulevard and West Deschutes Avenue. Event parking is FREE and best accessed from West Deschutes Avenue.
