Throughout the growth of the green commuter market, the global demand for e-bikes has grown significantly. In 2022, the European e-bike market exceeded 5.5 million units sold, a y/y increase of around 20%. And Yadea has a leading position on the e-bike circuit. With its relentless pursuit of innovation, quality, and sustainability, Yadea is now the world’s number one in sales of electric two-wheelers.

At this year’s EUROBIKE, Yadea showcased the Yadea Trooper 01, Yadea Innovator and Yadea Camper e-bikes, all well received by dealers and the media, with especially positive reactions from the global e-mobility, technology, and new consumer sectors. With engaging interaction and fruitful discussions, Yadea further consolidated its position as the industry front runner.

Both are controlled by the ELSD system, which guarantees safety with the bike’s powerful drive. Its 20×4-inch wide tires and full suspension system enhance stability and maintainability, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable ride on various terrains. Trooper 01 leaves plenty of room for modification, allowing users to explore new adventures with a DIY e-bike.

For riders who are keen on the “4+2” (4-wheeler + 2-wheeler) travel mode, Yadea also provides an ideal solution. The Yadea Innovator Foldable Electric Bike adopts a single-arm front and rear design and has a folded volume of only 0.27 cubic meters.

The music of groups like Kansas, Journey, and Boston is now coming into its own as a hallmark of nostalgia for multiple generations of pop enthusiasts. Attending the concert is a great way to sing all your favorite songs at the top of your lungs.”

The show is conceived by the creative team of orchestrator Chris Eastburn and singer/multi-instrumentalist Joe Boucher who brought “Piano Men – The Music of Elton and Billy” to the stage. “Piano Men” has been playing to sold out audiences with symphony orchestras across the United States since 2011.

Band members include vocalists Susie Pepper and Johnny Martinez as well as Joe Boucher on the piano and guitar. Boucher also provides vocals. Chris Eastburn handles the orchestrations and the bass guitar, with Gary Backstrom on guitar and Steve Hodgkin on drums.

Mary Two-Axe Earley: I Am Indian Again shares the powerful story of Mary Two-Axe Earley, who fought for more than two decades to challenge sex discrimination against First Nations women embedded in Canada’s Indian Act, and became a key figure in Canada’s women’s rights movement. Using never-before-seen archival footage and audio recordings, Mohawk filmmaker Courtney Montour engages in a deeply personal conversation with the late Mohawk woman, who challenged sexist and genocidal government policies that stripped First Nations women and children of their Indian status when they married non-Indian men.

Montour speaks with the late Cree activist Nellie Carlson, Mary’s lifelong friend and co-founder of Indian Rights for Indian Women, and meets with Edmonton’s Jodi Calahoo Stonehouse and her daughter Isabella in Mary’s kitchen in Kahnawà:ke to honour the legacy of a woman who galvanized a national network of allies to help restore Indian status to thousands of First Nations women and children.
