Sam Hartman

Writer, e-bike enthusiast

I am an experienced electric bike enthusiast and writer. About 8 years ago, I dove headfirst into the electrifying world of e-bikes and haven’t looked back since.

Along with riding, my other happiness is writing. I’m fortunate to have a position that allows me to craft engaging articles about electric bikes, sharing my journey, and growing expertise with readers. Before making a career out of ebikes and adventures, I was in programming. Now, I spend my days letting you know which is the fastest or lightest electric bike. I do the research and testing so you don’t have to.

Riding my ebike to the San Diego beaches with my surfboard attached is my happy place.  Apart from my own ebikes, I also love putting other models to the test and hunting for the best bikes out there.  It’s not just a pastime, it’s a lifestyle that keeps me pumped, one with nature, and always on the hunt for new adventures.

Writer, e-bike enthusiast

Hey there! I’m a Midwest electric bike enthusiast who can’t help but write about the things he loves. I joined Go Ride Bikes in 2023 so I could share reviews with like-minded bikers and it’s been incredibly rewarding. There’s no better way to get out and explore than on an ebike!

Nothing like riding an e-bike to the surf.
