    “Survey commissioned by eBike manufacturer says e-bikes are the future”.

    I’ll take a pinch of salt with mine, please. And, as ever, I’d like to see the questions asked.

    That’s impressive considering 75% of UK adults don’t even know what an ebike is !

    As I’m not thinking about it do I need to have a stern conversation with the wife ?

    And, as ever, I’d like to see the questions asked.

    Which of the following three methods of transport would you consider buying if the alternative were a slow and painful death?

    a: An elephant
    b: One of those broken-down donkeys you see on ads on the telly
    c: An e-bike (plus a £1000 voucher to spend at McDonalds)

    In 5 years time 55% of UK adults will have an eBike gathering dust in their garage with a knackered motor and no spares available!

    I cycled to work today. I cycled to the park and back. I’m working from home, not the park. I am not a squirrel.

    They deduced 55% of UK adults from a sample size of 2000. Okey doke.

    That’s impressive considering 75% of UK adults don’t even know what an ebike is !

    Indeed – I had to explain to my brother what one was and he owns 3 mountain bikes!

    Is the quote not ‘55% of the panel invited to speak about cycling thought they might consider at some point the idea of an ebike’?

    Easy to scoff at loaded surveys, but surely ebikes “should” be the solution for a lot of short and/or urban journeys?

    I don’t think anyone is saying ebikes aren’t a really good idea to replace car journeys.

    Just that this article is credulous to the point of making Singletrack look silly.

    My dad does. He’s not a fan of cars, but hates e-bikes with a passion. It’s really odd.

    Which version of cycle to work day was this? It’s unlikely that Cycling UK wouldn’t bombard my my inbox for 2 solid months about this and I had no clue.

    Does he say ‘Baaaah HUMBUG’ a lot ?.

    I don’t believe it personally. The last thing a commuter needs is to spend 3-5K on an E bike and get it nicked straight away. Also they are much heavier than road bikes.
    Just get a road bike and you’ll easily be able to do 15MPH which is plenty fast enough in an urban environment.
