Astro Biz: Polaris Electric Bicycles

IMG_1620Many businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring them regularly on Seattle Astronomy.

Today’s Astro Biz is Polaris Electric Bicycles. We often see a van from Polaris eBikes parked along Alki Avenue during our morning walks.

In truth, we aren’t sure if the van is down there because you can rent an ebike to ride on Alki, or if it’s just because someone who works for Polaris or a dealer lives down there. The Polaris website lists two dealers for the bikes in the Seattle area: Seattle eBikes on First Avenue South, and Pierre’s Polaris in Kenmore.

In either case, good work naming the company after the North Star!
