We love it when personal interests and larger and more nobel interests converge. Do you want to loose some weight, lower your cholestrol, have some fun and make the world a better place all in a single effort? It has been proven many times over that exercise improves physical health, mental health and is very effective in lowering cholestrol. The exercise we enjoy is the exercise we will perform the most. Cycling not only provides the exercise but also provides an exhilarating feeling of freedom and youth.

One ebike owner we know of was so out of shape he could barely walk across the room without becoming completely out of breath. Now, one year after starting his riding program of riding 15 miles per day commuting to work and back, his mental and physical health have skyrocketed. Just as importantly, He has saved $500.00 in gasoline costs, does not have to pay for a parking space, and is burning fat instead of polluting with burning fossil fuels. Car trips waste a lot of money and even time. According to the US Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration a quarter of all car trips are withing a single mile from home - about half of the working population commutes 5 miles or less to work. Parking your car and commuting via an ebike is good both for your body and the planet!

For whatever reason human nature is hard to change. EBikes are relatively a new form of transportation and therefore because of this human nature trait of being afraid of change, ebikes are scary to some people. EBikes have even been illegal in Boulder, Colorado to ride on bike Trails. However, after many ebike advocates promoting the health and air quality advantages of commuting by ebike instead of automobile, many city council meetings, research and hard work by city employees, the City of Boulder has instituted a one year test period of allowing electric bike on the paths in Boulder.See todays article here: http://www.9news.com/news/article/373292/339/E-bikes-zipping-down-Boulder-bike-pathsThis will encourage more people to park their cars at home and commute to work via scenic paths. This will result in healthier bodies, happier people, cleaner air, and more fossil fuels left in the ground where they belong.
