All for green transportation

Hi, new here. I have been thinking for some time about either electric cars or electric bikes. Ebikes sound good to me. Have to decide which one.

I saw a lot in the UK used for commuting. They avoid getting too much sweat on the ride into work. Also good if you can recharge the battery during the working day.

I'm thinking Andrew means an ebike since I don't think you can get sweaty driving an electric car.

Hi GreenChic, you probably know that there's an e-bike forum here . So, where are you located?

Check in with the regional forums, or just ask on the e-bike forum...
