This morning I was out riding with my mate and we had to get to Buckland Road from Edinburgh Castle Road. I said "come on... lets go the bikeway - it's shorter". I then realised what I'd said...…Continue
Not fast enough to catch a crook on a bicycle... or able to go up or down stairs like a crook on foot. In fact, I reckon pretty much anyone could out run them on foot. I guess they are real handy for picking up doughnuts…"
"That's the great e-bike advantage for sure.
The normal bike advantage is you don't have to buy a new one every 2/3 years, they are less than 1/3 rd the cost, have far less to go wrong, and are just as quick (or quicker) if you have a…"
