Joel’s 1st e-bike ride

by | Jul 15, 2023

Thinking about your first e-bike? View the short video below of our son Joel’s 1st e-bike ride. And in true fashion, Joel likes to go all out and push the limits. His suggestion was “Hey Pops, let’s ride 30 miles!” And that’s exactly what we did.

The Florida Rails to Trails

We found a great trail, The Florida Rails to Trails, that started on the edge of New Smyrna Beach, FL and stretched to Titusville. As much as we want to go end -to-end on the trails, we road the e-bikes for 30 miles on this hot summer day. A beautiful ride with great scenery and abundance of wildlife. The trail is paved and there are virtually no hills, just a great ride to experience nature at its best.


Joel road Joan’s new purple HOVSCO HOVBeta e-bike. The HOVSCO HOVBeta is a great companion for RV travel. This e-bike is foldable, portable and storable is a step-through style. We found the HOVBeta easiy to fold and place in our 5th wheel storage bay. With 4″ fat tires, a front suspension fork, and a 750W motor, we found the HovBeta preformed exceptionally well on pavement as well recent mountain trail runs.

Features include:

  • 750w Upgraded hub motor
  • 720Wh Samsung/LG battery
  • Weighs 66.4 lbs
  • Speeds up to 28mph after downloading app
  • Capable range of 60 miles on a single charge
  • Hydraulic disc brakes
  • SHIMANO 7 speed shift
  • 5 torque sensor pedal assist settings
  • Throttle on demand

Our thanks to HOVSCO providing the HOVSCO e-bike for our evaluation. If you’re interested in purchasing one of HOVSCO quality e-bikes, see the helpful links below.
