We all know the easiest way to get around DC is by pedaling. We also know that if you’re an older rider that a bicycle can be a health risk. Especially knowing that many parts of DC, isn’t flat. There are many older DC residents that can’t just get on a bike and go, for many reasons. Now you have a better choice and you don’t have to give up the advantages we get riding a bike. The electric bike is a better choice for the older rider.
You don’t see many of these unique bikes on the road, but I promise you will soon. The biggest reason is a lot of older residents don’ realize that an electric bike is an option, and affordable one at that. Being a proud owner of one for four years, you will get hooked on the ease it takes to ride this other mode of transportation. I love the fact I can take it down the canal and other places where a gas motor scooter, (for example) is forbidden.
The electric bike is bigger and much heavier then the average bicycle. It can carry two 24 volt batteries and will need charged each time you ride. This amazing bike will travel fifteen to twenty miles on a single charge, go about 18 miles per hour, and will go up hill without a lot of physical strength you need with a ten speed or trail bike. The cost can run from about five hundred to eight hundred dollars or more depending on what you want.
You will have to order your electric bike. Since the popularity of these bikes is still catching on you won’t find them in the stores. But with a little research you will find the electric bike of your dreams.
