Nothing anyone here doesn't know already, of interest if you want to know what the media are saying.

With an e-bike you wont get to work all hot and sweaty. Your fellow workers will like that.

As much as e-bikes might annoy me, I'd really rather be annoyed than choking on car exhaust riding through the city center every morning.

The other day I watched an ebike rider come to a 4-way stop and to their credit, they actually stopped and allowed the other vehicle to go, but it was so funny to watch how that person was all-thumbs as she tried to adjust her pedals so she could get up on the seat and start rolling again.

It's no different than any other recreational bike rider I see out there when they have to stop and get going again, they're very awkward in getting back starting. Or the many other ways I observe recreational bike riders make very basic mistakes riding a bike. I can kind of remember when I was that inefficient on a bike.

And now were seeing many more people getting on an ebike with this same lack of skill, but with all that power. No use in worrying about this, just sit back and watch the mayhem.
