I love my bike. Even to the extent of 'losing' one of my motorcycles. I have always kept a big bike and a small bike.Jolle wrote: ↑Mon Aug 19, 2019 1:46 pmE-bikes are brilliant!! They are in the Netherlands rapidly taking the place of mopeds. Here you need a license to ride a moped so delivery companies are switching to ebikes so everybody can ride them, regardless of age and license (and no expensive insurance) while still effortless going 25 km/h.Big Tea wrote: ↑Mon Aug 19, 2019 1:26 pmIs that an eBikeJolle wrote: ↑Mon Aug 19, 2019 12:25 pm
In none rural areas most or almost all trips are within the range of a modern EV, therefore most of the refuelling you see now are on short trips. With charing while parked, most EV users (especially in cities) will never see a charge station.
What does change, at least, how I would change my behaviour, is use the car more, even on short trips. Now (calvinistic upbringing) anything below 2-3 miles I do by bike, because a petrol or Diesel engine doesn't like to do short trips. An EV doesn't care.
The eBike now replaces the small one
