Here's another one from yesterday's ride. Practical Cycle rents a Worksman Team Dual Trike side-by-side semi recumbent tandem with an electric assist front hub motor, so sometimes I ride it with a disabled passenger who uses a wheelchair full time and is unable to pedal. We took the American River Parkway bike trail from Old Sacramento almost to the CSUS campus before the battery started to die. This was in spite of me not overusing the motor. I only ran it full speed on two short flat stretches. The rest of the time I used it to assist at times. The return trip was almost 100% leg power, including up hills.
Here's the raw version:
Here's a version with music sped up 8x. I had to put music on it because Windows Movie Maker 2011 mutes the audio when you speed up the video. This version shows the entire ride out to the turnaround point and some of the return trip.
EDIT: Deleted music video from YouTube to prevent any copyright strikes. 3 strikes and you're out according to YouTube. I have a clean record and would like to keep it that way.
