We moved to an area that is quite flat. We work about three miles from home. Sometimes we walk and sometimes we ride a bicycle to work. It is a real privilege for both of us to work at the same place at the same shift. This is a privilege many young married couples do not have. I like it that where we live we have a grocery and other stores within walking distance as well. However, on some days we are both tired for our trek home from work, and so we looked for the best electric bike model we could find. We wanted to purchase two of them.
On some days we just need the extra assistance for the ride home. This is especially true if we stop to pick up groceries. We both have a cart that attaches to our bicycles. It can haul anything from groceries to a pet. We pack them up with the items we purchased, and then ride home. After a long day at work, the extra weight makes the last mile or so a tough ride. An electric bike would provide the needed assistance to make that ride home a lot easier. We decided to get electric bicycles to avoid the need for using a car. We are both very ecologically minded, and we want to do our part to be friendly to the environment. We believe you should set an example for what you believe in even if you are not making a major change with your individual contribution.
We found two mountain style electric bikes that get us where we are going in any weather. It is nice to not be burning any fossil fuels but still able to ride to and from the places we need to go. An electric bike is as good as a small petrol-powered scooter would be for each of us.
