I mix regular bike with ebike on a weekly basis. It is a very welcome switch at times. High winds = ebike, knee feels like it could use a break = ebike, more relaxing ride = regular bike, time to simplify and enjoy when things slow down = regular bike. It breaks about 50/50 every week.

where are you at Steve ?

Aurora, Colorado, a suburb of Denver. A beautiful bike riding environment! Lots of paths plus a State Park nearby with trails and paths.

There's a decent trail network leading downtown as well, and I see commuters frequently, although I'm strictly a recreational rider myself.

sweet. Spent a week all over Colorado once. If I did not miss the ocean I would have moved there. (with all the Californians who are beloved by the people of Colorado) :)
