Commuting Adventures!

Braved my longest commute yet on my electric bicycle last Friday!  It was an adventure for sure. I started with a flat tire that wouldn't seal, couldn't get a hold of my family for assistance, just made it to my destination with a few minutes to spare after Slime decided to seal, and the return trip had me battling inconsiderate cagers (no offense, I too drive a car often :)).  I documented my ride with my new Drift Ghost HD camera. I love this camera! The sensation of speed from the wide angle lens and image quality is excellent. Check out the four part series of my commute below.  After real world experience with my bike, the specs are:

  1. I can't Remember the last time I had this much fun. Wednesday Afternoon, Perfect weather. The lifts were easy to get on and off, and they didn't slow down or stop once. There was NO line anywhere, for anything. A day ticket was only 39 dollars. electric bikes nz
