electric slide


When complaining about how much we loathe Spinning to local bike racer Rebecca Chan at a recent cocktail party, she said a certain piece of equipment might change our minds about hopping on a bike. The Specialized Turbo, an electric, pedal-assisted bicycle, carries the rider at speeds up to 28 mph, making the ride more pleasant for commuters and fitness fiends alike. “All you need to do is pedal and the Turbo will take you for a ride,” says Tommy Bullough, sales manager at Twenty20 Cycling Company in Hampden. “You can get to work faster—and burn some calories without the added sweat.” Upshot: We can’t wait to show off at the next Baltimore Bike Party. $5,900 in red and black. 725 W. 36th St. http://www.twenty20cycling.com
