Bosch eBike Systems has joined the Cycling Industry Club, an industry collective created by the European Cyclists' Federation. Bosch might be the world’s largest car-accessories company but it was founded by a cyclist. In the 1890s, founder Robert Bosch used a bicycle to visit his customers. “It not only got him there faster, but also saved him money,” says a Bosch corporate history.
Claus Fleischer, head of Bosch eBike Systems, said: "By joining the Cycling Industry Club we support the ECF in its commitment. Together with other leading industry players we strongly advocate a cycling policy that is in keeping with the times.
Bosch makes e-bike drive units (motor and gearbox) and other e-bike components.
