This article really sums it up at the end and concludes why an Electric bike is so useful and why only those that use one know why they are such a perfect form of transport. Why would anyone walk or use a car if they have an electric bike. Walking is too slow to cover ground quickly. The car is a big metal object that is difficult to park and inefficient for short journeys and can often leave the driver frustrated in heavy traffic. I love my cars as much as the next person but only when I can drive without hindrance.
Every time I ride my electric bike I feel as though I have achieved something that is really special and get all the benefits of cycling but get to move quickly across town or over the countryside flattening hills and churning up the miles with the use of gears on steroids literally doubling the strength of every turn in your leg so you end going further and faster meaning that after an hours hard exercise you travel 20 miles instead of 10. It means you can extend your trip and include hills in any commute.
