Washington, DC, May 04, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Azura Magazine is a new Caribbean lifestyle publication. It officially launched on May 3, 2018 in digital format. Geared towards young professionals, it is published on the island of Barbados and it offers a new perspective on island life, with a focus on style, wellness, productivity, and more.
Quikbyke, developer of the first solar-powered electric bicycle rental "shop-in-a-box," is honored to be among the publication's launch advertisers. Both Quikbyke and Azura recognize the importance of facilitating the deployment of sustainable modes of transportation, and solar-charged electric-assist bicycles are as "green" as they come. Solar panels convert the Caribbean's ample sunlight into electric current, which is stored in an integrated battery bank. That energy is then drawn from overnight to recharge the batteries on the 10 electric bikes housed in each converted 20ft, side-loading cargo container.
"The mission of Quikbyke is to introduce as many people as possible to the delight of riding an electric-assist bicycle," explains Tom Cosgrove, chief operating officer. "We want visitors to the islands and locals alike, to experience the fun, freedom and fresh air that e-bikes offer. Our 'Engineered by Quikbyke' qiosks are perfect for the island environment; offering security, mobility, and, effectively, a zero carbon footprint that can be totally free of the local power grid."
Given Azura's focus on productivity and wellness, Quikbyke is pleased to have been asked to help launch the magazine, seeing e-bikes as not only a way to promote health and wellness, but even improve one's personal productivity, especially in communities where automotive traffic can be a person's biggest time waster, as well as expense.
Cosgrove explains that Quikbyke.com is looking to partner with established businesses across the Caribbean that are interested in opening up Quikbyke rentals in their communities, especially in popular cruise ship destinations.
"Quikbyke-powered electric-assist bicycles are not only quiet and emission free, but are attractive to a much wider range of riders than conventional pedal bikes.
"Not only do they appeal to riders 16-80, but we've found just as many women as men enjoy riding them. They can open up more of a destination's commercial and sight-seeing offerings while also providing a comfortable level of exercise. With ranges of 20-30 miles per battery charge, renters can explore far more than they can on foot," noted Cosgrove, who oversees Quikbyke's franchise and sales operations.
