Default Re: Do you pedal when riding

Yes I like to pedal. So far all my bikes have been electric, but once I have my Wu Yang/Solex up and running I guess I'll be pedaling that too. With this illness I have I need to maintain a level of exercise, so I set my bikes up to be 'power assisted' rather than being completely powered on their own.
It's why I hate driving a car, - it's too passive, - which means that whenever I have to do it for any distance the joint and muscle soreness I get in the aftermath is just plain awful. With riding a bike though the 'lpa' (light pedal assistance) is just perfect for keeping the pain away.
Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy chocolate which is almost the same thing
