Hi speedy25, I'm beginning to wonder if he ever will come out of his comfort zone. I've never seen him sweat or breathing harder, even a little. Seems at a certain point around 12 mph he just settles...

The major problem with my friend is he's deathly afraid of hills, so he's mentally beaten from the start. So, I suspect he'll use a lot of battery power.

I've come to the conclusion, it was a...

Hi Joe that makes sense. And maybe by doing short rides, he'll get enough impetus to increase fitness, perhaps by riding more on the ebike that alone may increase his fitness.

Yes Nelson, that sounds like his speed. I'm beginning to see, it was probably foolish of me to tell him how nice a long ride with the group will be to him. (in hopes he'll train and get fit) I can't...

Agreed. You don't suddenly jump in front of faster moving traffic just because it's legal to "take the lane". And, do you look back and signal first when you intend to take the lane where appropriate?

A mirror will at least show you what's coming up behind you at all times rather than frequently turning your head to take quick glances back. It adds a measure of safety.
