If you’ve ever thought about buying an eBike, 2020 is a great year to do so. With people avoiding crowded public spaces throughout the country, you’re probably looking for a way to ditch your subway or Uber ride for good. We can’t blame you.

Electric bikes solve a lot of problems. They reduce fossil fuels and congestion, you don’t need to be in the best shape of your life to ride one, and they get you outside. After the spring and early summer we’ve had, this is something we can all agree we desperately need more of. But, most of all, riding an eBike is fun. You’ll get the same joy coasting downhill that you did when you were a kid. Only now the bike will power your adult body up inclines at a more consistent speed than you could possibly pedal. Phew.
