Bluewave Bermuda Charge held a road rally procession from Dockyard to Clearwater today [Sept 2], with the goal to start the conversation about energy systems, and to display the latest technology side by side with timeless models from years gone by.

A spokesperson previously said, “Bermuda has a rich motoring culture. We take pride in our boats, our cars and perhaps most of all, our motorcycles.

“Our goal is to start the conversation about energy systems, to display the latest technology side by side with timeless models from years gone by. We are coming together for a fun community convoy along a stunning route, with an energy expo and entertainment at the finish line, by beautiful Clearwater Beach.”

Should the follow-up event be approved, Clearwater Beach will be the starting point for the Bermuda Charge Zero-Emission Superbike Race in September 2019, offering a public show of road racing, on a closed route between Clearwater and Kindley Field. The 2019 road race has already received official support from the BTA, but requires further approvals before it is sanctioned.

    But we also smash them up everyday!

    They may have zero emissions but still have a carbon footprint.

    • Yes, most end products will still have a carbon footprint of sorts, no matter how small. However, during our energy expo last Sunday, we showed that an electric street bike could race against its gas counterparts powered only by the sun caught on the roof of a BE Solar van. The energy from the sun was held and distributed by second-use batteries, which had been salvaged from vehicles destined for the dump. We aim to show that sustainable technology is increasingly viable.

    This ride doesn’t make sense in so many ways. Claiming they want to race zero emission motorcycles, but you are having a ride with almost all gas vehicles not to mention how are these things going to be charged? If they are going to be charged by Belco one thanks for feeding Belco two it defeats the purpose of zero emission cause they are running on a carbon foot print.

    • One of our objectives is to start conversations (like this one) about energy options in Bermuda. The ride was a gathering of Bermuda’s motoring and race enthusiasts, whether they like gas motors or electric motors or both. We had the most viable and hi-tech energy solutions on display for visitors to enjoy at the finish line. This included low-emission gas vehicles and fuels, as well as electric options. One electric street bike raced against gas bikes, powered only by the sun captured on the roof of a BE Solar van. We understand that Bermuda cannot become low-emission overnight, but we are helping to accelerate the process.
