I always thought that electric bike were for wimps, I mean, isn’t the point of riding a bike to get exercise and sweat like a dog?
It turns out not everyone wants to be dripping with sweat after a ride (my mom included). I recently took an Optibike for a spin and now I’m a believer in the power of electric bicycles.
When it comes down to it, getting more people on bikes electric or not is a great thing. They’re still breathing fresh air, getting exercise and leaving the car in the garage.
Here’s a video of my test ride up Flagstaff Mountain…it was a breeze!
