I've had an electric mountain bike for nearly two years and I ride it to work, on average, a couple of times a week. It's a 24 km round trip. Takes me about 8 minutes longer than driving the car. Best thing is I don't sweat, so no need to have a shower when I get to work.Just ordered my new limousine. Lets see if i can do 40km a day.
