Since I went on ADT (Orgovyx and abiraterone) my biking speed and power has substantially diminished. No surprise due to T=7. Hills I used to breeze right up are now challenging, and riding into any wind is very difficult.
I wonder if an ebike would at least get me back to where I was prior to ADT.
Note that I am now 82 years old and restarted riding at 70. I was a D+ to C- rider early on. Now I am barely a D- rider, so don't bother to ride with the club since I don't want everyone waiting for me at the intersections. Prior to ADT, I could ride with the 1.5 w/kg groups on Zwift. Now, I am hard pressed to keep up with the 1-1.2 w/kg groups. On Zwift, comparing with rides before ADT, I have lost about 3 mph.
On a recent Bike Coalition of Maine ride in Machias, ME, it was very windy and hilly. The few ebike riders seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Is an ebike in my future?
