From higher ed to a higher calling



Susan Gautsch, owner of Free-to-Roam eBiking, had a career in Los Angeles but moved back to New Mexico to pursue her passion for ebikes during the virus pandemic.


Beyond simply selling and renting e-bikes, Gautsch said she wants to change the way her car-dominant hometown views cycling.

Gautsch, who serves on the board of BikeABQ, said she wants to see Albuquerque become a more friendly city to cyclists of all stripes, just as Los Angeles started to during her last few years there.

Susan Gautsch

Founder & CEO

Raised in Albuquerque, Susan (aka eBikeSue) left at 20yrs old to live in Hawaii, Chicago and LA. In the last 25yrs, she's raised a few kids and enjoyed a 25yr career at a few universities such as Northwestern, Pepperdine and USC directing graduate programs in IT, Business and Public Policy.  But New Mexico's visceral draw grew stronger each year – as did her passion (maybe  obsession) for eBiking, so in 2020, she finally returned for good with the simple goal of supporting healthy lifestyles, active mobility, sustainable transportation and gobs of fun through ebiking.
