Reply To: Does anyone use a pedal assisted ebike?

I have a pedal assist e-bike, along with a few traditional “leg assist” bikes. I got the e-bike for the sole purpose of being able to do social rides with younger, faster riding partners without feeling like I’m slowing them down. E-bikes are great for what they are. But for RAGBRAI, I will ride a regular bike mainly because I want to limit the number of things to stress about. With an e-bike, I tend to watch the battery level and constantly mentally calculate how much juice I have left. Between that and worrying about where to recharge, for me I think it would detract from the whole carefree RAGBRAI experience.
