With gas prices on the rise and the summer months approaching, people are starting to look at electric bikes as a viable commuting alternative to driving a car.
This video caught my eye because Calvin Phuong of Marina del Ray, California decided to use an electric bike to replace some of the in town commuting he normally does with his truck.
Calvin says that the electric bike is a great way for him to commute around town without putting a lot of city miles on his truck. City miles on a vehicle contribute to a lot of wear and tear.
He also talks about riding his electric bike for fun on the weekends with his wife and towing their child in a bike trailer. This is a great point because an electric bike can be used for the commute as well as for enjoying a nice casual ride with family. Electric bikes definitely help when towing a trailer!
And let’s not forget the exercise! Calvin admits that sometimes he takes it easy and pedals lightly. But it still beats sitting in a car!
Another advantage of bike commuting is enjoying the outdoors on your way to and from work. It’s a nice way to start or end the work day.
