Open to all residents of Canada and the United States aged 19 and up, the contest will run until July 15.

“The Burley Travoy is a great addition to any bike it is attached to, but it works especially well when it’s hitched to one of our electric commuter models,” says OHM Cycles CEO Michael DeVisser. “The electric assist from our BionX motor makes heavy loads feel much lighter, so cyclists can ride faster and with less effort than with a normal bike. The Travoy is like an attachable car trunk.”
OHM’s hybrid bicycles come in three models: an electric commuter bike, a special edition electric commuter bike, and an all-terrain electric mountain bike. Riders control the amount of work they put in, making their bike rides easier and more enjoyable.
The Burley Travoy Trailer comes with a basic cargo bag, a hitch assembly, and tie-down straps for bulkier cargo. Additional bags and features can also be purchased.
