Since my car died, I been riding my bike everywhere. I went to the post office and noticed this electric bike parked in my spot.
At first I thought about how lazy it is to ride one of these and how it defeats the purpose of exercise, but then I looked this little guy up. Turns out he gets a 15 mile range on one charge with a top speed of 15 mph. That is pretty legit for $500.
I live approx 7 miles to the beach and it’s a nice little exercise mission. But usually turns out to being a big chunk of my day. I go and shoot photos, have lunch, go for swim maybe, then ride back. (I haven’t been doing this much lately since it’s rainy and cold.) This e-bike could cut that time in half. But will cut probably 100% of my exercise, that is if I don’t pedal at all and just use the electric motor.
I probably will not buy this. But taking inventory of time spent, it’s curious to see where I can shave off some time for more productivity.
Another post about scheduling, this will not be the last. LOL.
