Many of us could bicycle to work but we don’t. Why? Several reasons. Maybe it’s too far to pedal or it’s uphill part of the way. No one wants to get to the office looking like they just completed a leg of the Tour De France. Electric bicycles could solve both problems.
There are lots of other perfectly good reasons not to get on your bikes and ride. Many cities have roadways that force bicyclists and motorists to compete for the same space, making riders nervous. Then there’s weather. Riding into the teeth of gale while it is pelting down rain is no one’s idea of a good time.
