Since my recent transition from a non-bike commuter to a full-time bike commuter the benefits have been great – I get daily exercise and I’m generally much happier. Studies show that lengthy commutes have been linked to poor mental and physical health while shorter commutes lead to higher life satisfaction. Although my commute on a standard bike is not too hard, it takes roughly 8-10 minutes with an average speed of 6 mph. With the Populo Sport, I was able to get to the office in about 3 minutes with an average speed of 13 mph and a top speed of 28 mph. Additionally, being able to adjust pedal assist power on the fly is one of my favorite parts of ebiking. I can choose how much power I want to exert depending on the situation. Overall, if riding a bike is relaxing then riding an ebike is exhilarating. The key thing about commuting by bike full time is not to set yourself up for failure by making it too hard. And with the Populo Sport, you’ll always reach your goal.
