I'm impressed and wowed, both with the range *and* riding in the congested atmosphere of Wash DC. I'd be terrified of all those cars, trucks, busses, and crazy pedestrians everywhere. I'd be a fish out of water. Too used to the rural countryside.Readyto ride, I used to ride from Falls Church trying to save enough battery to reach Winchester MD going up Ga Ave (MD 97) and back . Never made it but got close. Take trails to Ga ave then strait up. Pretty decent place to ride , right lane is either marked or larger lane further up to Brookeville , then still ok but doable for a long ride. Round trip a title over 100 miles
ps I would have made it sooner or later but we just moved to GA
What bike make/model is it? Looks nice! I cannot fail to notice the Ortlieb E-mate pannier rules nowadays!The glaciers have melted, the roads are drying out, but there was a head wind, which turned into a tail wind. I went for a ride this afternoon.
In the orchards, it smelled like fermentation was taking place. In the cowish area, well, it smelled like......cows. The cows should start having babies soon.
It sure is good to see the sun again. January seemed awfully dark and gloomy.

It's a Gazelle Arroyo. I really like it. It handles like the name implies--light and responsive. I was turning the power off on the flats what with having a tailwind.What bike make/model is it? Looks nice! I cannot fail to notice the Ortlieb E-mate pannier rules nowadays!
Now that is a decent amount of power. I am looking forward to the day when we can get that kind of power and range in a single small bike battery. Bikes that come with small batteries today are often only puny 8 Ah batteries and are just toys.Battery on a downtube is 13ah and the main battery behind the seatpost is 23.5ah. 36.5 ah in total.
