Electric bike winner named

Patti McPherson won the grand prize draw at the recent Nelson Green Home and Energy Show, $1,000 towards an electric bike, donated by Mike Clyde of Pedego Canada.

“I love my new electric bike,” McPherson said. “I’m a big proponent of using active transportation and having the electric bike now affords me the option to walk or ride to work and around town but in less time. Besides the health benefits I get from riding it has also opened up dialogue with the students at the school I work at and giving them the incentive to walk or wheel to school as well.”
