I Bought an E-Bike

Posted on:

Welp, I finally did it. I bought an e-bike.

We live in town now, and I realized that I really hate driving my truck in town all the time. I had considered getting a second car (we still need the truck for our campers) but it seemed so excessive. I just needed something to run errands in town. No kids, no hauling, just me, driving within a 5 mile radius of my house.

Hence, the e-bike.

I honestly think this will cut back on most of my driving, and play a small role in helping me keep active.

I’ve been thinking a lot about embedding more active activities into my everyday life. From joining a disc golf league, to kiting, and rowing, my hope is that this bike can play a small role in me maintaining a more active lifestyle.

I’ve always been interested in bike commuting. I did a lot of bike riding when I was younger, but just haven’t made the time to really get into it. I lived in a city that was really not bike friendly, but from a bit of research I’ve found my little small town is really bike friendly.

Can’t wait to see how this goes!

The first trip? Getting ice cream. (One thing at a time, okay?)
