Strike Discounts on Electric Bicycles At PHEW!

Do the hills of Northwest Philadelphia or the endless ride from the Northeast keep you from biking to work? Then an electric assist bicycle might be the answer. Philly Electric Wheels opened in October in Mt. Airy across from Weaver's Way Co-op. Phew! carries five lines of electric bicycles and tricycles, plus conversion kits and is offering incentives for those stranded by the SEPTA strike.. The store has extended its hours for the duration of the strike, and will also open by appointment on Mondays and Tuesdays. Prices for electric bicycles start at under $500 and for the duration of the Strike and at least through this weekend PHEW will offer regular SEPTA riders a $100 discount. (Show weekly or monthly transit pass.).

Philly Electric Wheels also offers:
· Free escorted trial rides (for 16 year olds, up, with proper I.D.)
· Free trial ride of a hybrid, or self-generating bicycle – Coasting downhill and braking actually sends energy back to the battery.

PHEW! is only a few blocks from the R8 Carpenter Station:
550 Carpenter Lane
