Default Re: how often do you pedal? Tips on pedaling..

I pedal just like I'm riding a normal bike, but that makes me unusual for a motorized bike rider. I pedal because I am a life-long bike rider and I just like to pedal. It just feels good to me. I prefer a bicycle feeling rather than a motorcycle feeling.

Pedaling doesn't add much to speed - about 1 to 2 mph at full throttle. But hard pedaling can really speed acceleration from a stop, and it can greatly increase speed going up steep hills.
