We all know that human powered bicycles are the most green form of transportation. Zero emissions and no need for petrol. However, it does require fuel in the form of food which is not really a cost factor in the strict sense, as we have to eat regardless of whether we cycle or not. Marvellously, the food we eat is converted to energy. Such is the beauty of how *wonderfully our bodies are made.
Pleasant conversations followed and we learned that the e-bike enabled him to enjoy the great outdoors and manage steep hills with hardly a sweat. Without it, he would have had to stay at home in front of the TV, like a cave hermit. That got all of us excited and immediately, we went to the e-bike shop at Miami Shopping Centre to make more enquiries. The bike could hit 25km/h and had a range of 40km. It costs a bit over A$2000 which is reasonable compared to higher end foldies. This certainly is the way of the future, especially when we get on in age.
