Please describe how the Pedal Ahead e-bike is benefiting your lifestyle?
The Pedal Ahead e-bike has been great to get me outdoors and more active! I ride 3-4 times a week , as we were told in our safety training it really is addicting!
Are you using the e-bike differently or for more types of rides than you had initially thought?
Yes, I have run an errand or two, when originally I just planned to use it for exercise.
What is the typical length of your ride (in miles)?
Please describe your most fun e-bike ride or adventure?
A friend of mine and I went riding around Coronado Island on a beautiful day. The tide was out so we also got to ride on the shore.
Are there any things that have surprised you about riding an electric bicycle?
It is really fun. I have always enjoyed bike riding but with the e-bike it's so cool because you can go even further, see more things and you’re not completely winded or too sore afterwards.
Can you comment on how the Pedal Ahead experience has improved your health and lifestyle?
For some time I have been living a rather sedentary lifestyle. Most times I was so busy running around from thing to thing, I didn't make time to get out or exercise much. The Pedal Ahead program has helped because I have a commitment to the program and I feel the benefits in my energy levels, mood and weight loss.
Please describe any suggestions on improving the Pedal Ahead e-bike experience?
It has been great so far. I appreciate how the program gave us all the necessary safety gear along with the bike. I feel like we have been set up for success. Thank you.
