Imagination should be your only limitation
E-bikes allow us to reach much further or with a much heavier cargo load than be limited to our physical capability, which can mean e-bikes are a real world car replacement for the rest of us. The amount of effort required to cover 10 miles on an analog bike, for example, can carry riders closer to 20-30 miles when combined with the power generated by an e-bike motor. Typical ranges with e-sisstance can be 20 miles to over 100 in the most eco modes. Battery size is a big factor in the distance equation - double up or get a bigger battery to cover more distance. Like electric cars, most of the value of the e-bike is actually in the batteries.
Keeping up is key to biking togetherness
Another scenario we hear a lot is when a couple have unequal fitness levels. It can be very frustrating for a bike enthusiast who has an established rhythm or pace to slow down so much that it is no longer as enjoyable in order to have a riding experience together. An e-bike can level the playing field for family bike trips, acting like a escalator for the aspiring rider to get to his/her faster partner's pace. Cargo e-bikes fitted especially for kids can keep the whole family at a pace where the analog cargo bike will struggle to get up hills with the extra weight. Front loading kid haulers also make for a more intimate family experience than the first generation cargo long-tail bikes, allowing parents to keep an eye out and converse with their loved ones.
