Electric Bicycles

Posted on Mon, Oct 3, 2011 at 10:55 AM

I have no tolerance for the SET drivers who only ride their regular bikes once or twice a year, yet they have the audacity to negatively judge me for riding an electric bicycle 8 months out of the year. They spew all kinds of vile crap like 'lazy', 'blasphemous', 'wrong', 'should be illegal', etc. Well, I'll have you know that my power assisted bicycle is 80% bicycle and 20% assist. When I use it on a regular basis, the mild sweat that I get adds up to more calories burnt than your once a month bicycle rides. Also, you SET drivers, did it occur to you that electric bicycles have a smaller environmental footprint than cars? And, before the SET stretchy shorts cyclists snicker too loudly, you guys are just as bad. Did you know that electric bikes produce a smaller environmental footprint than a regular bike? Your metabolism is only a fraction efficient as a battery and dc motor. —Kiss My Arse, You Judgemental Arseholes!
