One of the things I love about electric bikes is that they help people of all ages and ability levels to enjoy a bike ride again or for the first time. Recently I interviewed Gary from Hybrid Cycles in West Chester Pennsylvania and he mentioned in the interview that ” Our prominent customer is the leisure rider over 50 who “love to bike, but hates the hills.” He also mentioned that some customers have bought e-bikes to “keep up with their spouse” or “to deal with knee, hip or back problems”. I have heard this many times before and it is great to hear again 🙂
