In this episode of Real People talking about ebikes, we meet a young lady at the farmer’s market in downtown Santa Barbara. She tells us that her and her husband rented ebikes in Ojai a few months ago and fell in love with them.
She says that everywhere you go here is either up or down a hill, so it was good to invest in ebikes. She uses her ebike for commuting, shopping, and short errands, and even though the ebike offers an assist, you still get a decent workout. The ebike doesn’t take over for you, it just gives you a nice little push. It helps you along, especially in hilly areas.
