Source: press release CAKE | Swedish company CAKE reaches a major achievement in its “The Electric Conquest of Continents” campaign with the successful completion of its transcontinental journey through the United States. Led by CAKE US Sales Manager Jackie Rosenstein and supported by Friend of CAKE Bobbie Long, this solo ride serves as a strong example of the potential for emission-free motorcycling.
After Sinje Gottwald successfully launched the Electric Conquest project in spring of 2023 and completed a solo ride from Barcelona to Cape Town, Jackie and Bobbie have also made their mark in the record books. They embarked on their journey at the CAKE :site in New York City and rode down the iconic Route 66, ending at the CAKE’s LA :site in Marina Del Rey.
“The Electric Conquest of Continents is not just about demonstrating the capabilities of our electric motorcycles; it’s a movement towards inclusiveness and sustainability in motorcycling. We’re honored to have Jackie and Bobbie, following in the footsteps of Sinje, take on this formidable challenge and inspire countless others,” stated Stefan Ytterborn, Founder and CEO of CAKE.
Jackie Rosenstein and Bobbie Long, two passionate motorcycle lovers, set out on an incredible feat – becoming the first female duo to ride electric motorcycles across North America. Their expedition took them through a variety of landscapes and climates, pushing the limits of CAKE’s electric motorcycles and showcasing the brand’s dedication to pioneering technology and eco-friendliness.
The Electric Conquest of Continents project has been continuously inspired by Sinje Gottwald, whose adventurous spirit led her to embark on a solo CAKE bike journey through Africa. Not only did she discover the diversity of cultures and languages, but she also pushed the boundaries of electric motorcycling technology and made a positive impact on society.
Mark Bense, CAKE’s Head of Operations for North America, expressed his pride in the team: “This accomplishment is a testament to the spirit of adventure and the potential of electric motorcycles. Jackie and Bobbie’s journey, echoing Sinje’s African adventure, is a crucial step in demonstrating the viability of zero-emission vehicles in long-distance travel and adventure riding.”
Crossing the USA is a crucial milestone for CAKE’s mission to conquer each continent with their electric motorcycles, ridden solely by women. These expeditions are not only about promoting sustainable transportation and the exhilarating experience of silent riding, but also demonstrating the resilience and adaptability of CAKE’s electric motorcycles in even the toughest environments.
