Please describe how the Pedal Ahead e-bike is benefiting your lifestyle?
I find that e-bike riding is fun and exciting and It provides me with health benefits and interesting social interactions.
Are you using the e-bike differently or for more types of rides than you had initially thought?
I am discovering new roads that I have never traveled. Every ride I take is a new adventure that I look forward to. Discovery is a wonderful thing.
What is the typical length of your ride (in miles)?
Please describe your most fun e-bike ride or adventure?
On a recent ride to Balboa Park I saw a couple of musicians playing some tunes. I approached them and asked if they might be willing to sing a birthday song for my wonderful son. I told them that my son was turning 40 and that he was out of town. They quickly agreed to me recording their performance so that I could send it off to my son. And that turned out to be a really fun thing to do.
Can you comment on how the Pedal Ahead experience has improved your health and lifestyle?
A bike ride gets me off the couch and out into the sunshine and fresh air. It provides for mental stimulation and it makes me feel good.
Are there any things that have surprised you about riding an electric bicycle? Please describe.
I am surprised at how the different power settings affect the ride. I was surprised when my front tire went flat and when I pumped it back up it continued to hold air. I am surprised at how the bigger tires make the ride much better when going off road. I am surprised how much fun it is to be able to keep up with the other bicycle riders . I am surprised by how much safer I feel riding with traffic now that I’m able to travel a bit faster.
