Yesterday was national Bike to Work Day (part of Bike to Work Week), and I did not bike to work. However … I had the particular joy of riding at work. For this occasion, more than ever, I made it a goal to ride with store visitors as much as possible. It was my plan to participate in the bike/work national event in my own style. So each person who came into the store to learn about Pedego GLB was fair game for a fun “escape-the-paperwork” bike ride — okay, we called it a test ride. And as a result, yes, I rode a Pedego electric bike on Bike Day. And 24 hours later, I’m still smiling.
I’m thinking there might be a lot of people out there who just don’t know that they can ride an electric bike to work. They haven’t thought about the savings on gas, insurance and DMV, etc., which add up and make bike commuting a fine idea to discover this week. If you know anyone who would benefit by commuting to work by bike but is concerned about hills, headwinds, distances, sweat, exhaustion, etc. … have your pal give us a call. Pedego electric bikes are a game changer in many ways. Imagine arriving at work feeling energized and happy with a bounce in your step that lasts all day. Need exercise? Sure, use less motor on the way home. It’s as easy as that.
In the past, I worked from home and my bike commutes were actually errands run around town. I rode Gidget, my original Pedego bike, all over the map for all kinds of errands. When you’re sitting at a computer for long hours composing articles, stories and more, you need to get up once in a while to feel the wind caressing your face and the sun warming your shoulders. It just plain felt great to twist the throttle and speed away from life’s stress.
I guess I’m still commuting in my own way. And I really hope others will discover this amazing form of alternative transportation — the one that shouts out, “Hello, fun!”
See you on the bike path …
