PLEASE HELP SUPPORT RIDERS WITH DISORDERS AND DISABILITIES!!
Thanks so much, for taking the time to read this and learn how you or your firm can help support riders with disorders and disabilities.
My name is Johnathan Smith. I am an Advocate for E-Bikes and also E-MTBs. I help promote them, and work with riders with disorders and/or disabilities. I spend a lot of my free time working with kids or new riders with disorders and disabilities and helping them get into biking. As you know E-Bikes are helping riders with disorders and disabilities in so many ways that the benefit of using them is outstanding and this is just one of the ways we have them.
I also do one-on-one training and group rides at all levels to help kids and new riders with disorders and disabilities to get on the road/trail, by doing this I am opening up a new world for them.
I’ve been funding and using Giant products. We have the following bikes:
2018 Giant FULL-E+1 SX PRO
2018 Giant Stance 2
2018 Giant Content 1-TR
2018 Trek PowerFly 5 FS
2017 Giant Stance 1
I been funding this out of my pocket and now its time to try to get some help from others. We are trying to get some of the following products or 2019 and would love to ask your help
Giant 2019 Trance SX E+ 0 Pro
Biking Computers (Garmin, CatEye, Wahoo, etc)
Biking Helmets (Giro, MET, Specialized, etc)
Biking Locks (Krptonite, Master, etc)
Biking Lights (Blaze, Lezyne, etc)
This is a great cause, and hopefully the work being done could help people with E-Bikes (electric assist bicycles, not self propelled, gas or electric) who would like to use the trails and resources other cyclists are privileged to access without restriction. The E-Bike is a great advancement for those who’d otherwise not be able to ride.
Now more about me…
People know me most as the famous pilot named “LightSport Man”. I’ve been in the news a number of times with the titles “LightSport Man Overcomes Obstacles to Take Flight”, “Do You Know the LightSport Man?”, “Pilot Has a Stutter”, “LightSport Man Flies Over Obstacles”, “Pilot’s Stutter Flies Under Radar”, “Pilot’s Stutter Disappears When He Files”, “Flight Instructor’s Severe Stutter Disappears When He Flies”, and more.
I have been in media outlets like: 12 News, 3 News Now, 9 News KUSA, ABC10.com, AOPA, AZ Center, Argus Leader, Aviators Hot Line, Courier Journal, Daily News, Delaware Online, Detroit Free Press, Detroit Free Press, EAA The Spirit of Aviation, El Paso Times, Farmington Daily Times, Flying Magazine, Florida Today, General Aviation News, Humankind, IndyStar, KAGS TV, KCEN TV, KENS 5 News, KHOU 11 News, KING 5 News, KREM 2 News, Lebanon Daily News, Iowa City Press, MSN, Naples Daily News, Peoria Republic, The Asbury Park Press, The Delmarva Daily Times, The Shreveport times, The Tennessee, USA Today, WUSA 9 News, WFAA-TV, WHAS 11 News, WKYC Channel 3 – Cleveland News, myCentralJersey, plus more…
My story is a great story and helps so many others with disorders. I offer free rides to kids or others with disabilities and/or disorders, and for those who have never experienced flying in a Light Sport airplane. But now I have a NEW FIGHT, and I need everyone’s help. I am now flighting for riders with disorders or disabilities to have the right to ride class 1 E-Bikes. This is a new fight for me and one that I know I can win with everyone’s support. I am fighting for E-Bikes and E-MTBs to have the same rights as riders and to give those riders that need the help access and places to ride them.

Advocate for E-Bikes.
