What else does she use her e-cargo bike for? She's a regular at the farmer's market, she goes to the bank (you can carry lots of money on this bike :o)), goes to the hardware store, and even picks up heavy bags of grain from a local farm. She reports that she can can now cover "a much wider area, with no weight hauling considerations and issues with hills compared to when I was doing it all my own power."
Linda has gone as far as Brookline (36 mile round trip) and Putney (20+ mile round trip). The e-cargo bikes from Juiced Bikes are outfitted with extremely high performance batteries that can take a rider somewhere between 40 to 60 miles, depending on the weight you are carrying, how much you pedal and other factors. She notes that she especially loves the range capacity.
VBike is so thrilled to have folks like Linda as ambassadors of such a truly "Vermont Strong" way to move around. She says she'll soon be adding on a front basket and some additional lights to make her bike even more useful. And Linda is really enthusiastic about the future possibilities with her e-cargo bike and is "looking forward to many more miles of biking."
If you see her out there, let her know how cool you think she is!
