I just bought an e-bike!
Yup, I just took the plunge and bought an e-bike! This is an electric powered bike that goes around 50km on a charge (30 miles or so) and is PERFECT for booting around town. Now I know there will be some of you who say "just ride your bike" and I agree totally. But my hot yoga studio is downtown, and I live 16 km (11 miles) away and to bicycle there (which takes around 45 minutes on a fast day), do 90 minutes of yoga, and bicycle back just isn't workable. And I hate to use the car as parking is a real aggravation, as is the fuel emission issue. So e-bike it is! I'm so excited, because now I can also take advantage of the discount gym downtown, too (former staff members have access to a fabulous corporate gym with swimming pool for $16 per month all inclusive). The e-bike will save me over $100 per month in gas costs alone, not including parking!!!!
