Great rides are full of hair-raising descents, jaw-dropping climbs, and belly-filling cakes. When I (a bona fide under-30) am riding with my old man, and even older grand-man, it’s hard to include all of the above without causing the already nervous family GP even more worry. “Radical blood pressure dude.” Thanks to the arrival of e-bikes though, the GP might be able to prescribe themselves a chill pill, let their loyal customers hit the trail, and let families like ours unite through e-assisted adventure.
