Please describe how the Pedal Ahead e-bike is benefiting your lifestyle?
I love it so far I’m really liking the fact that I’m getting exercise and riding more miles
Are you using the e-bike differently or for more types of rides than you had initially thought?
I’m using it for commuting and occasionally a weekend ride. It’s great
What is the typical length of your ride (in miles)?
Please describe your most fun e-bike ride or adventure?
I went on a ride over the weekend to lunch in La Mesa and saw family in Lemon Grove — 19 miles in one day
Are there any things that have surprised you about riding an electric bicycle?
I thought I would use the battery power a lot more often than I do. I primarily ride the e-bike the way I would ride a conventional bicycle. I only use the battery for steep hills and when riding into strong winds but because of the availability of the battery assist I find myself riding for longer distances than when I rode my conventional bike. Because of that, I am getting more exercise than I did with my conventional bike.
Can you comment on how the Pedal Ahead experience has improved your health and lifestyle?
I like the fact that the bike is not a lazy ride you still workout and it makes me ride more , thank you!

Yes, I love the fact that you can ride it like a regular bike and use E when needed. I love it
