In the new Nangang Exhibition Center, Taipei Cycle Show for the first time had enough room for the ExtraEnergy test track.
During the entire time of Taipei Cycle Show (March 13-16, 2008) the ExtraEnergy TEST IT Track was set up for the Conference audience and show visitors to test ride electric bikes and scooters. The upper parking deck of the new Nangang Exhibition Center offered enough room for a spacious test course, a nice view included. The over 100m long drive-up to the upper halls was also part of the test track. It clearly demonstrated the advantages of an electric motor in uphill conditions.
A Taiwanese TV team chose the track as setting for their shooting. They filmed a young model on different electric bikes and a scooter of Bangkok Cycle to teach the audience of a chilren's program about LEVs and how much fun they are.
For the comings years, ExtraEnergy is hoping that more manufacturers will participate in the event. This year, mostly pedelecs of Shoprider were available for test rides.
