MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - UPDATE: Due to the forecasted snowy weekend ahead, organizers from Down Wind Sports have pushed the E-Bike Extravaganza to May 13 and 14 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event location will remain the same.

Down Wind Sports is partnering with the Marquette City Police to host an event for people to learn about electronic bikes, also known as E-bikes.

The event will take place on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Ellwood A. Mattson Lower Harbor Park in Marquette. During the clinic, attendees will also be able to test all different types of E-bikes and ask any questions they have.

Down Wind Sports Co-Owner Todd King said E-bikes open a lot of doors for people to get out and enjoy the area.

“It’s giving people a lot of access to trails they normally wouldn’t have, and we see that people are buying them as a plus one style bike or as a computer bike,” said King. “Or they physically cannot run a regular pedal bike, but they might be able to use a pedal bike.”

King also went on to say that he hopes everyone in the community gets a chance to come out and experience this event because E-bikes are the future.
