A lot of people in this age bracket have heard the words “bicycle” and “lights” in relation to cycling, but the concept of an electric bicycle and the accompanying buzzwords like “bicycles” and its derivatives has become much more widespread.
And now the idea of riding a bike for a living has caught on.
But the idea is a bit less well understood than it used to be, and the general public may not know much about the nuances of electric bicycles, or how the technology works.
In this episode, we discuss the basics of electric bikes, what they look like, and how to get one.
We also explore some of the big trends that electric bikes are bringing to the table, from low-voltage, low-cost, to high-performance.
We’ll be talking to people from all walks of life, and we’ll ask a lot of questions about how they choose to ride a bike, what it takes to get a bike that works for them, and whether electric bikes offer the kind of comfort and style that you’d want in a bicycle.
It’s a lively conversation, and it’s one that we think we’re going to leave you with a lot more of.
And while we’ll be focusing on the technical aspects of electric bike technology, we’re also going to touch on some of its broader implications for urban transportation, and maybe even the broader public.
