Ebike

Recommended Posts

I have been cycling for a number of years now and I stil enjoy it. However increasingly I find that that as l get ready to go out for my Sunday ride ,I feel a reluctance to go out . The thought of those hills I have to go up before I even get going (I live in Bewdley) was getting too much. Pity because I have loved my cycling ,the countryside, the quiet, the sound of the tyres on the road surface, the sunlight through the hedge rows all added to the joy of riding . The thought of giving it all up was not  something I wanted to think about. I struggled with my conscience for many months, but in the end I gave up the fight. I even went into my  garage and cleaned the bikes ,as if I was asking forgiveness for what I was about to do. I dusted off the cobwebs and and opened up my piggy bank, I bought an ebike. I know, shock , traitor, betrayer shame on me. It is great, I now go up hills with a smile I have even caught myself laughing as I climb a hill I normally walk. My mileage has gone up and Also my average speed ,but above all I feel a lot fitter. It is a bit like riding a fixed heel bike but with the option of a freewheel. So those of you of a certain vintage should grasp the nettle and go for it. Like me at the age of 82 and give yourself a few more years of cycling joy.

Well done Terry, if it keeps you out on the road, and, as you say, with a smile on your face, then it can’t be bad. I have heard wishers in the club, that there could be a few more ebikes amongst our members. So don’t feel guilty about it. Enjoy it. We’ll see you in Bewdley on it some time. 😁
