An E-Bike allows you to go further, faster, and not even work up a sweat. You can often go faster than cars during rush hour. The cost of ownership is very low. You can join other bikes on bike paths in most states. You can ride an electric vehicle even without a license or registration in most states. Those are some of the reasons why an E-Bike beats a regular bike, and is much better as a second car for all your rides under 20 miles. So inexpensive to own and maintain. What about if you have a physical issue such as heart problems, knee issues, or back problems. One way to overcome such limitations is by having pedal assist or your throttle to help you go long distances without stressing heart, knees, or backs.
