I am thinking about buying a used e-bike.  Electric bikes have pretty small batteries now, some of which can be charged in a regular electrical outlet in a half hour!

The main advantage to an e-bike would be an ability to go a little faster…consistently but I would still have the same problems with safety (many people around here don’t watch for bicyclers around here) and if we get a rainy season (it’s raining now, miraculously) it’s going to be cold, miserable and less safe.  Still, perhaps it could work until I get a better car.

Thoughts anyone?

    E bikes sound expensive. Electronic parts tend to cost when they break. I hope you can get a good price.

    Rain never lasts long out west. Neither does the cold. Do you ride on the street or the sidewalk? I see a lot of bikers on the road, virtually begging to be hit. Though it may be illegal, it is safer to ride on the sidewalk, like you did when you were a kid.
