That was my own History of E-Bike, and yours?
I was a never a hard care biker, but one of my first dates with my wife was a bike ride, and even though she got sun burned, she stuck with me. We did many casual rides over the years, but it got less and less as both of us passed 60. Saw our first ebike in 2015, and I figured we would ride more if we had ebikes. So that's how we started.
My personal history includes being a retired electrical whiz, home improvement guy with tons of tools, and car enthusiast. I bought my wife a basic beach cruiser ebike, and when I saw how they were made, I converted an old Trek. Here's my $2500 car (so sez my insurance company) and our first two ebikes
I found putting motors into bikes much easier than doing the same with a car, and have done a lot of that on both old bikes and newer ones. Maybe the future will be a old folks trike. We don't ride far or fast. but try to get in a daily 10-12 mile ride.
My wife has ridden 800 miles this year on a little Schwinn step-thru folder. Should get past 1000 soon. We've on 20" bikes for our joint rides. I still get out my 26" beater for solo rides and try to get some miles on my regular bike too,
