My first time with an e-bike

When I was a child, I learned to ride a bicycle, I couldn’t believe all the emotions that pedaling on two wheels could provide. That incredible feeling of freedom that not only allowed me to get to the sites faster, but much further than I had ever thought about, master the balance, learn what happens with the mass transfer according to the brake you press, tilt the body to close the path in a curve … And it is that my enjoyment in childhood would not have been the same without the bike.

But time passes, and one gets older and, your faithful companion, is forgotten in a corner of the garage. Your first job, your first car, your first home … Until suddenly, without looking for it, the bike finds me again. It was 1992 when the Mountain Bike boom took place in Spain. And I, like many, bought a beautiful bicycle to enjoy in the countryside both beautiful surroundings and the opportunity to recover a physical form that, like my first bike, seemed to stay after my childhood in that corner of the garage. The experience excited me again, but neither my physique nor my head were prepared for an effort that seemed titanic to me. As if it were, for me, climbing an 8,000, because I had no time to train and what I wanted was to go out to enjoy from the first minute.

Many years have passed again and, although my physical form I believe that it has not deteriorated to that extent, now with more than fifty years and more gray hair than brown hair, what I am clear is that it has not improved and, the efforts Without a doubt, they cost even more. Therefore, the first time I heard about bicycles with assisted pedaling or e-Bike, I didn’t rush. I thought it was a technology designed for me, but first I had to prove how they worked.

It was at the beginning of summer, when it was already hot but the air still cooled with movement. The first thing that caught my attention was its ease of use. With the same sensations that I remember from my childhood on a traditional bike but with a small effort. In addition, assistance can be regulated depending on whether you feel like doing more or less force when pedaling. You really know that the assistance is there, although you hardly perceive it by the naturalness of your intervention. You only feel that it is hardly difficult for you to pedal while you move at a speed at which in a little more than 100 meters you would be physically paraded if you did not have that assistance. And suddenly, on my way, a great slope appears. Already in the gesture of turning around I think … What if I try to raise it? And, no, I couldn’t believe it. As in plain, it climbed effortlessly, at a sustained speed and without losing speed throughout the slope. This was a new sensation for me. So nice that today my e-Bike waits for me every morning in the garage parked in front of a car that, surprisingly, is now my second means of transport. I no longer just move from one place to another. Now I enjoy fun walks to work or a meeting while deciding when I want to do some exercise. Thus, I have managed to recover a physical form that I thought I would not be able to enjoy again and, above all, without hardly realizing it. This time I am sure that my e-Bike will never end up in a forgotten corner of the garage.
