Pedal Power

After a successful sales career that took him across the country and around the world, Sandy Springs resident Eric Hunger was ready for a change. He began to look for a new business opportunity in his home town that would allow him to live a healthier lifestyle, interact with others who shared his interests and eliminate the nearly constant business travel that was required with his previous job. After exploring numerous options, Hunger discovered ElectroBike and became passionate about bringing the concept to Atlanta.

ElectroBikes are state-of-the-art electric bicycles. Powered by a lithium battery and a quiet, brushless electric motor, ElectroBikes can be operated as traditional bicycles, but with the flip of a switch, the rider can turn on the pedal assist feature or operate a throttle for an effortless ride. With eight different models ranging from $999 to $1,800, ElectroBike has the largest in-stock inventory on the East Coast, including three folding bicycle models offering maximum flexibility for commuting to and from work.

“ElectroBikes are ideal for Atlanta. They’re perfect as an affordable transportation option to avoid some of our city’s traffic issues. Not only do the bicycles get you out of the car, but ElectroBikes make it easy to flatten Atlanta’s hills, and they can deliver you to your office feeling fresh since you don’t have to work up a sweat pedaling."

"They’re also great recreation bicycles for people of all ages and abilities. You can ride them like a typical bicycle for more of a workout, but if you get tired or if your knees or back start to ache, you can use the pedal assist to easily return to your starting point.”

  • Hunger launched his first shop in Brookhaven at 2484 Briarcliff Road, and recently purchased the Atlanta Bicycle Barn on the Atlanta Beltline
