Default Re: Do you pedal when riding

I pedal all the time- to start it back up, because I'm always coasting down to any stop I anticipate after killing the motor- saves gas, noise , lets the motor cool down- sometimes a long period if I'm at an intersection long- and it keeps the brake pads from wearing down if I'm down to more of a bicycle speed when I'm coming to a stop-

and if I'm near the store in the parking lot or around crowds, I;m usually just pedalling-

I'm always saying my light cruiser with all alloy and titanium, and narrow 700c wheels, pedals better than most bikes otherwise- and my saddle is set up high enough to do that.
