The only sportive I've ever done was for fun.
But you did it unaded.You tested yourself.Good for you.The only sportive I've ever done was for fun.
It was a 50 mile sportive, lots of my friends attended, it was fun.
To challenge myself, a few years later I did the same sportive, then rode back home another 50 miles.
That was less fun at the end of it!
Because the OP likes riding his/her ebike, and a sportive is an event where people like to ride their bikes.
You can enjoy it on an ebike, you can enjoy challenging yourself on an ebike. The challenge might be in cycling further than you have ever cycled before, or riding the distance quicker than before - this is testing yourself isn't it? You can challenge yourself to get more miles from the battery by using less assistance, or riding over the cut-off speed. I don't ride sportives myself, but get some of the same satisfaction from Audax rides - and ebikes are allowed.But what are you testing yourself at?? Its not a race, theres no prizes..just enjoyment.
Why cant someone enjoy it on an ebike just as much
You are being purposefully (I hope) obtuse.
