When it comes to those heart pounding hills, an electric bicycle has the power to get you over even the steepest without breaking a sweat. That means you can enjoy ALL of your ride, not just the parts on flats.
When you get tired, just add a bit more motor assistance. With some electric bikes this is as easy as turning a throttle. With others, like the BionX kit, you can increase the motor assistance setting and the bike intelligently adds power as you pedal. Riding one of these electric bikes is like being a competition racer, only stronger. You still get to pedal, but for every stroke the motor adds up to 300% of what you put in.
