Florida Teen Represents Tampa Bay in OneWheel World Championships in
Snow Basin, UT July 31st While Fighting off Officials Who Don’t Understand What This Futuristic & Transforming Personal Mobility Device Is
Imagine being a 15-year-old boy literally floating through life on an electric contraption people have never seen before. That’s what Tampa Bay, FL teen Noah Bild has been doing the last two years: Logging over 15K miles, carving insane mounting biking trails wherever he can find them, and now racing as a teen in the men’s pro division; ultimately landing him a spot this July 31st at the World Championships in Snow Basin, UT; known as Race for the Rail.
• OneWheel is an electric mobility device, with a speed of 19-25 mph (experts know how to push speed) and range of 12 to 60 mph (depending on your battery type), is transforming transportation; once you step on a OneWheel you will wonder how you ever lived without it.
• Appeals to a diverse community, from young kids, to people over 50, veterans riding to cope with PTSD, to recovering addicts, both blue and white collar workers; all have forged a common bond through this OneWheel wonder. People facing depression, isolation, or in need of community can create instant connections anywhere in the US in a matter of minutes through our strong community.
• Despite the good OneWheel has done for communities nationally, to include OneWheel Meals and riders logging over 50-million miles relieving congested roads, many State and City officials who are unfamiliar with OneWheels are banning them for no valid reason; forcing people back inside. Only public awareness and education will change this.
Noah Bild, goes to Tarpon Springs High School and is sponsored by The Float Life out of Sacramento, Ca whose mission is to promote community within the OneWheel family. The Tampa Bay Times recently covered OneWheels helping to raise awareness about this powerful and growing trend but much more work must be done.
