Bosch has updated its eBike Flow app, enabling its consumers to use their smartphone or the head unit of their e-bike to lock and unlock their bike digitally.

Meant as a supplementary security layer to be used alongside a physical bike lock, the eBike Lock feature deactivates the e-bike's motor when the e-bike is powered off, adding an extra level of protection against potential theft.

Anne-Marije Rook
North American Editor

Cycling Weekly's North American Editor, Anne-Marije Rook is old school. She holds a degree in journalism and started out as a newspaper reporter — in print! She can even be seen bringing a pen and notepad to the press conference.

Originally from The Netherlands, she grew up a bike commuter and didn't find bike racing until her early twenties when living in Seattle, Washington. Strengthened by the many miles spent darting around Seattle's hilly streets on a steel single speed, Rook's progression in the sport was a quick one. As she competed at the elite level, her journalism career followed, and soon she became a full-time cycling journalist. She's now been a cycling journalist for 11 years.
