We set up eco-Bikes because we believe electric bicycles can help more people travel by bike. This is not only healthier and cheaper, it is also the greenest way to travel.
If you'd like a healthy and fun way to travel, but are daunted by hills, long distances or headwinds, a good quality electric bike from eco-Bikes can make all the difference.

Hobart's hills and weather demand a well built and equipped bike. We researched the ebike manufacturers, sought first hand accounts, and selected models that we think have the quality, power and reliability for use in hilly Hobart.
We sell a range of quality e-bikes from eZee Bikes and Dahon to suit different requirements. See an overview of our range of bikes here.
Glowworm Bicycles are the distributors of the highly awarded eZee bikes and eZee bike kits. They are also Sydney's premier electric bike specialists.
The Hobart Bike Kitchen is a non-profit group of bike lovers promoting cycling by recycling pre-loved bikes and supporting cyclists keep their bikes in good condition.
EcoTasmania was founded in 2007 as a sustainability business following a community bulk purchases of solar systems in Hobart. We have been promoting and selling electric bicycles since 2010.
A portion of the profits derived from all sales are put into a projects fund to help support sustainability and carbon reduction projects in Tasmania. Since 2007, this fund has donated tens of thousands of dollars to projects including support for Sustainable Living Tasmania and sponsorship of the Sustainable Living Expo.
