Electric Bicycles

I may have already mentioned electric bikes - because i think they're a great idea. A new store just opened up in my neighbourhood, and i had a test ride of a few.

Intially, you might think that using electricity might increase your transport emissions (compared to traditional cycling). But these things have quite a range (20-30km) so they can be an alternative to a car, for those trips that are just a bit too far to pedal. And the electricity is just a few cents per charge.
