In a couple of years, you will be able to sit back and let your motor bike do all the work while you breeze through the hills on your community event with a battery that lasts all week. You wont have to do any training at all. All the while dressed like a racer.
ebike is a marketing name, its not really a bike, its a bike with a motor.

Its just not the same, I’ve been on lots of Ragbrais, those things are bikes with motors, they cleverly market them as e-bikes, but those things aren’t bicycles, they should call them something else, perhaps I should get one, riding would be so much easier.
