Had a couple of e bikes for a while now, and, had all the 'cheating' arguments thrown at us, who gives a stuff what anyone else thinks? In the Peaks yesterday, chatting to a guy outside local bike shop. His story is the perfect antidote to idiots who criticise others with no knowledge of their history. Diabetic, overweight - so wife buys him an e bike (mountain) he rides it regularly, lost 6 stone! Can now ride with local group, as well as his son. Loves every minute of it, new lease of life, desperate to get out on the hills at every opportunity. What more could you ask for?
