“My Friends Say It’s Cheating.”
You need to ask, “What’s the measure of judgment?”
Meet Harry, 87 years old, Pennsylvania state high school record holder in high hurdles (1945 and 1946).
He doesn’t think it’s cheating! He says it enables him to continue to enjoy bicycling.
“I wouldn’t’ be able to do it without the Ridekick boost!”
“At first, I didn’t think I’d like it. It felt like I wasn’t being true to the bicycling experience. But after I tried electric-assist cycling, I could see the advantages. I can ride farther and I DO ride more often. I don’t care what anyone else says, electric-assist cycling works for me. It can work for you, too! Give it a try!”
Any type of cycling should be enjoyable, and the rider can decide what to do to take to make it so. Maybe that means using a trike instead of a bike, or a tandem instead of a single ride. Or maybe that means adding an electric boost – electric-assist cycling – to get you past the challenging parts.
Whatever enables you to get more out of your bike or trike is exactly what you should be doing!
If you get more pleasure from the ride, you’ll ride more. And if you ride more, you’re not driving.
Not driving = not cheating.
You’re not cheating when you use an electric assist.*
Ridekick International is “behind” you on this one!
