Want to explore this week’s art action by bike but lack the stamina for all that urban criss-crossing? Luckily help is at hand from the folks at Cowboy, who make connected e-bikes for urban riders. Their goal: improve metropolitan mobility by getting city dwellers from A to B sustainably, comfortably and efficiently. Since 2017 the company has been pushing e-bike boundaries with their smart, sleek-looking electric wheels that are all about safety, comfort, intuitive handling and peace of mind. The bike certainly has some cutting-edge software features: it alerts you if your bike is stolen, notifies emergency contacts in the event of a fall and plans routes using air quality data so you can always move through the cleanest parts of the city.
If you fancy a test ride and want to learn more, head to the Cowboy flagship store in Mitte which is decorated with Berlin’s renowned cobblestones. The two-hour rides are ideal for doing a bit of gallery hopping during Art Week: start out at Galerie Thomas Fischer before taking a quick coffee break at Sofi and cycling over to Sprüth Magers, where exhibitions by John Baldessari, Kaari Upson and other artists await. You can book a test ride online.
