Letters: An E-Bike Changed My Life
AN E-BIKE CHANGED MY LIFE
Picture this. I’m a 61-year-old male. Been a Type 1 diabetic for 52 years, but I never let it get in the way. Then things started to hurt, tighten up, and I had to sell the snowmobiles and dirt bikes. I switched from touring street bikes to three-wheeled Spyders to not worry about things. Getting less and less mobile and then saw an ad for a Juiced CrossCurrent. That looks like fun. When the pain starts, I hit the throttle. Now my wife and I have four of them—two CrossCurrents and two RipCurrents—and ride eight months of the year. It’s the perfect toy/exercise machine.
I get exercise, I get much of the excitement of motorcycling, the bike is light enough that it doesn’t bother my legs and knees from holding it up, and I can ride with the kids all the way up to bicyclists used to, riding 100 miles at a time (well, almost!). On a regular bike I was good for two maybe three miles without stopping, and five miles was a great day of riding. Now, we ride 30 miles or more, and I can still walk from the garage to the house when we are done (well, almost, I am in my 60s!). It changed my life for the better—way better. Love your magazine!
