“We both bought electric bikes and they’re both made in Belgium. I tried to get her to buy and Ahooga but she wanted the step-through frame. But both the bikes are made in Belgium.”
Notes: I stumbled across this pair and their electric bikes and instantly started teasing them. About how old you have to be to have an electric bike, what they bought and why… E-bikes are brilliant as it gets a little trickier to get speed from legs alone. And a little e-assistance means a bit of speed.
But I gave them a pile of abuse about going electric, anyway. I have to. It just comes out of my mouth. I have slowly developed an appreciation for electric bikes. Enough cyclists who have injuries and the e-aid has helped them keep miles.
Or distance. Long rides for a regular commuter is just easier with the battery chugging away. And then, reality hits and there is age.
But en e-bike can start a second life on a bike. So, slowly I have come to love e-bikes.
