I'm worn out after walking 100 metres and need to rest so I don't really ever go more than 100m from where ever I can park my car. I had a quick ride on a friend's ebike and it was suddenly like a new freedom so I bought a folding ebike for me and the wife.
It is so easy to ride, I can pedal along on the flat for quite a away but as soon as I get tired I can turn on the electric assistance and the battery takes over.
On a hill switch the power on and you soon along with no effort. So the great thing is I can go places I haven't been for years, it's gets me out in the fresh air and I get quite a bit of excersize riding it.
It folds up so we can put the bikes in the car and drive out and have a ride, we had a great ride around the Olympic rowing lake near Windsor which is about 5KM to go all the way round it.
So far it has 95KM on the clock and I look forward to having a ride, thought I would share this with you all as I had never thought about an ebike before.
