Seattle--Records were made to be broken this afternoon at Magnuson Park, as riders attempted to break a Guinness World Record for the most E-bikes during a ride.
Cascade Bicycle Club organized a two-mile parade around Magnuson Park with hopes of breaking a previous record of 275 E-bikes during a ride .
Approximately 500 people registered for the ride which made organizers fairly confident that the record would be broken.
Executive Director Richard Smith says that breaking the record is about making a statement, both for E-bikers and conventional bike riders.
People are using bikes as their primary means of transportation, especially in the Puget Sound due to increased parking challenges.
Nationwide, E-bikes sales have tripled over the last four years.
" E-bikes are really growing in the city of Seattle, it's an exciting way to get around because it flattens those hills and is super easy", says Richard Smith , Executive Director of Cascade Bicycle Club.
The fun of shattering the record didn't stop at the bike ride, booths were set up for riders to accessorize their E-bikes.
Cascade Bicycle Club says 406 riders participated during the attempt. The final count will be sent to Guinness to become official.
