Feasibility Study Tests E-bike Market in Boone

Ryan Gillespie has big ideas to improve the commuter experience in Boone. Gillespie, a senior Sustainable Technology major in the College of Fine and Applied Arts, is passionate about what he calls "responsible transportation." His goal is to help revolutionize the way citizens commute by studying how a small group of students, faculty and staff use electric bikes over a 6-month period, and apply this data to facilitate a local e-bike rental service.
