First ride in just under 2 weeks due to the out of town holiday. Thirty miles with a windbreaker as it was 59 with a NE wind of 10. Thirty miles. Looking forward to the next 6 months of outdoor activity.
Looks like you folks are getting our version of "lake effect snow"..... ocean effect? Hope you can keep the lights on!That is the only type of bike I've seen on the streets these last few days. There are about 20 cross-country skiers on the street for each bicyclist. I'm walking, not biking.
But I still have electricity (most of the time).
If you can, do it! Very common experience with e-bikes is that people ride more often (and farther) than they expected they would. So much so that the health benefits of pedelec e-bikes is about the same as traditional. I found this was true with my cargo bike. I thought I might ride it to work (before retirement) once in a while (9 miles each way) and ended up riding it every chance I could.Back to that bike: I would LOVE one of those with electric assistance.... Get me out of my Lazyarseboy!
I didn’t actually see other riders today, but usually there are a handful even in conditions like these.
