So here’s the deal…this was a good article that again made me think about the blurring line between bicycles and motorcycles. I have to admit often times I have to fight the old man inside my head, “If you whippersnappers don’t want to peddle, they buy a motorcycle! And keep off my grass!!”
The truth is, it’s great that there is a gradient of choices in the two-wheeled world. If somebody wants 100% exercise, buy a traditional bike. If somebody else is primarily focused on getting from A to B as fast as they can, but doesn’t want the weight and mechanics of a motorcycle, buy a Class C electric bicycle. If, like many of us, somebody wants something in between. pick from one of the hundreds of options out there and love your purchase.
