Tim Stone Real People Taking About Ebikes

In this episode, we hear from Tim Stone, a staff member of the EOPS program at Santa Barbara City College. The Extended Opportunity Programs and Services (EOPS) is a state-funded support program designed to provide academic support, financial assistance and encouragement for eligible, financially disadvantaged, and academically underprepared students.

Tim describes many of the common benefits of ebike commuting. They have a program to cut down on traffic, air pollution and parking. He loves riding around town everyday, and commuting to work. It’s a fantastic experience. It’s a great way to exercise. With three different levels of power assist: eco, standard and high. You pick the level you want based on the amount of resistance there is. The ebike also comes with gears, which many people may not realize, which allows you to adjust the level of effort you need to use when pedaling. It’s a breeze climbing up hills, and when he gets to work he’s not at all sweaty, and he doesn’t need to take a shower. But on the ride home, he can push as hard as he wants, work out as much as he wants, just like a conventional bike.
