This is the best electric bike that money can get you for both light on road and light off road ridings. A lot of great features are in store with this bike, and the positive energy that it brings to the riders qualifies it to be in our list of the best.

Features and Specifications

Operation Modes

The first outstanding feature worth mentioning with this ride are the four different modes of operation that it comes with; pure electric, pedal assist, traditional bike and a blend of pure electric and pedal assist. All these modes have special functions but aim at making your ride easier and smoother.

Pedal assist mode is designed for when you’re riding up-hills or during humps in a bridge. The pure electric mode, on the other hand is great for bursting high speeds and enjoying sweat-free rides. The combination of these tow enables the cyclist to ride for long distances more efficiently.

Powerful Motor and Long-Lasting Battery

This bike is equipped with a 500-watt motor. This power is strong enough to see you through a speed of 28 mph. its battery, on the other hand, is a Samsung Lithium-ion battery. A combination of this battery and the motor will comfortably see you through 22 miles when using the pure electric mode and an outstanding 50 miles on the pedal assist mode.

The Good

Great Speed and Mileage

There is no doubt that this bike is very powerful. No matter how heavy you are, it will still manage to ride at high speeds. One property that attributes to its power and fast speed is its Samsung battery. Be sure to ride for 30 miles without charging, depending on the type of terrain used. This makes the bike suitable for long distance travels.

Versatile

This bike is highly versatile and works well under any condition. It is ready to tackle any challenge that comes along its way thanks to its wide tires, full suspensions, powerful motors and seven speed gears. Whether you’re gliding over sand, mud, snow or rocks, you will do it with utmost confidence. We, however, don’t recommend it for very steep hills.

The Bad

Unsuitable for Short Riders

Short people are, unfortunately, exempted from enjoying the benefits accrued by this bike. By short, we mean people below 5’9” tall. Riders in this bracket, should consider going for other options in the market.

Who Is It For?

Breeze Electric Bike Fat Tire E-bike is designed for anyone looking for an all-terrain all-season bike, not to forget that you must be above 5’9’’ tall to use it.

Conclusion

What this bike brings to the table is a blend of comfort, high speed, high mileage and extreme smoothness. We couldn’t ask for anything better when it comes to its performance. The bike offers you a great value for your money, and makes its purchase a good investment as the best cheap electric bike under 2000.

Every year we’re looking for moralers to help us get ready for the awe-inspiring 135-mile, 24-hour run from Hershey Medical Center to THON! HE Morale Application.  Applications are available now and due by August 31.

We’ll pair moralers with runners and whether it’s through care packages or phone calls, you’ll support your Hope Express runners throughout their training and over the course of the 24-hour run. There are six different morale committees to be a part of including Mail Call, Moraler Weekend, Hershey Kids and Start Line, Finish Line, Marketing/Media, and Hope Express/Extreme Team.  We welcome all fun, outgoing people who are proud to wear the color yellow!

Our committees include:

Mail Call

This committee is responsible for assisting Connie Angus with the kids party at the hospital and the start line pep rally before the run begins on February 19th.  The Start Line is right outside of the entrance to the Medical Center, you’ll want a rowdy crowd to get the runners kicked-off with the right amount of energy and support!

Finish Line

The Hope Express – About

About The Hope Express?

Hope Express is a tribute to the Four Diamonds kids and their families. By running 135/140 miles through central Pennsylvania, the participants will raise awareness for The Four Diamonds Fund while honoring the courageous battle these families fight every day.

For Hank and Connie, it is not so easy to explain the ‘why’. They are a Four Diamonds family and have experienced first hand the effect THON has on families. They could not have endured such hardships without the support from the kids at THON, our family sponsor The Student Red Cross Club and The Four Diamonds Fund. All of these organizations have brought sunshine to many cloudy days and pulled them through some really tough times with Gabe. The Hope Express is their way of giving back.

How Hope Express Was Created

Hank and Connie Angus attended their first THON in February 2006. A few weeks before, Hank told Connie he was going to run to THON. He had just started training for a marathon and had found that all of the running was really helping to get his mind off of everything that was going on with his son Gabe, and his battle with leukemia. Of course, there was no way Connie was going to let Hank run to THON so he did not.

After THON 2006, the Anguses were sitting in their car ready to head home and both turned to each other and said “we need to get that run together”. They were so impressed and overwhelmed by their first THON experience that they wanted to contribute.

At first, they talked about making this a torch run from the Hershey Medical Center to THON that would resemble the Olympic Torch run. The torch would be lit on the 7th floor by one of the kids and proceed to THON from there. Once at THON, they hoped to transfer the flame to a torch, symbolizing the start of THON. So they began working that angle until they were told how heavy the torches were. That became a deterrent, considering who might be carrying the torch along the way. The Anguses were determined. They still wanted the run, but needed a purpose. Since the intent of the run has always been a symbolic way of tying the families and activities at the Medical Center to THON, they started to think about how they could get the families involved. There are many families who will not be able to attend THON because their children are too sick to leave the hospital. They thought this run would be a great way for those families to express their regards to the kids at THON by sending a note or a letter. And so the THON Express was born, based on the Pony Express that ran tirelessly from point A to point B just to deliver a message, so will the Express runners carry those messages from the kids in Hershey to the dancers in State College!

The Hope Express

Dear Friends,

We started The Hope Express ten years ago because of a tremendous need we had to pay back The Four Diamonds Fund for giving us a future with our son.  In 2006 we decided to run to THON with a few simple goals: to give back and raise awareness for the Four Diamonds Fund, by running through the communities of central Pennsylvania.  By doing this, we could bridge the gap between the children at Penn State Children’s Hospital and the students at Penn State.  You all know the rest of the story because you helped to write it.

Over the next 10 years, what started with 15 runners and a few volunteers would evolve into a year-round charity, with several events raising more than $650,000 for THON.  We’ve had over 200 runners carry the magic pouch through Central Pennsylvania, stopping at countless local businesses who have supported us along the way.

We celebrated our 10th Anniversary last February, running with a record 5 teams.  What we didn’t realize at the time was that this would be our last run.   We will not be running to THON in February 2017.  The decision to end the running of the Hope Express is not one that has been taking lightly.  We will retain the rights to “The Hope Express” and the trademark rights to “Hopester”.  Moving forward, the use of either of these items is forbidden without written consent.

We want to thank everyone who has helped with our “crazy little run.” Especially our volunteers, local business owners, our drivers, moralers, and most of all our runners. Thank you only goes so far when your gratitude is so deep.  Thank you for believing in this silly little idea and making it bigger than life.  Thank you for welcoming our family into your hearts.  Thank you for carrying the mission of Four Diamonds with you every day.

Stay in touch, keep the friendships that have formed alive and come knocking on our door often.  You are always welcome with open arms and a tremendous hug. We love each and every one of you.  May you be blessed with good health and happiness always.
