As you’ve seen, DC has more than its share of outdoor bikes, and, lately, scooters.
[Hey! Have you seen my post on custom-made MTM clothing? Take a look, and if you place an order, they will add a free custom shirt. Just tell them The Washington Lobbyist sent you.]
Now, joining the two-wheel trend is a new kind of bike, the Lopifit electric walking bike, that is offered exclusively to guests of The Hamilton Hotel Washington, DC.
The hotel recently debuted a fleet of six Lopifits, a new, innovative way of moving and imported from the Netherlands.
Hamilton guests who want to take in the sites, while obtaining a quick workout, now have complimentary access to the Lopifit bikes, which are propelled by a battery that turns the treadmill while an person walks.
The electric assist in combination with the adjustable multi-speed gears boosts the riders walking pace to speeds equal to or greater than a regular bike.
The rider chooses the gear/speed they want — speeds of 3 to 20 MPH – which offers a low physical impact high cardio high-calorie burn exercise.
Hamilton Hotel – Washington DC. 1001 14th St NW, Washington, DC 20005. (202) 682-0111.
