In this episode of Real People Talking About Ebikes, we talk with a “young” couple in downtown Santa Barbara, who share their love of ebikes. They’ve had their ebikes for about one year, and with a 48V battery and mid-drive motor, they can ride up to 40 miles on a single charge. The husband tells us that they recently rode down to Carpinteria and back (about 30 round trip) and even had some battery power left over at the end of the ride.
The husband tells us that their ebikes can tackle all the hills around town - and if you’ve ever been to Santa Barbara - aka the American Riviera - you know there are some really steep hills encompassing the city.
The wife tells us that ebikes make it so much fun to go out for a bike ride. When you get home after a ride you don’t have to spend the rest of the day recovering. And believe it or not, they both are in their 70s. They can go for a 2 or 3 hour bike ride, and still have enough energy for the rest of the day. All I can say is, WOW, such an inspiration. It’s wonderful, and you should try it.
