Grand Haven, MI: Electric Bike Place (powered by MACkite) makes a return for the 2018 Grand Rapids Boat Show displaying their electric bike and electric skateboards.

This year, Electric Bike Place is simplifying their design by focusing on two out of the eight bike brands: Pedego and Raleigh. Raleigh focuses on creating functional bikes with fun designs and moderate price points. Pedego is the largest electric bike brand in the United States, featuring a variety of cruiser, commuter, and mountain riding styles. Electric Bike Place will have both bikes for guests to ride on a stationary trainer.
