Ebike/car comparison totals start June 10, 2015, which was the date my human-electric hybrid bike ("Black & Red") got on the road. I pedal a lot of these miles, using the electric motor in short intervals, especially the steepest hills. I plan to replace a lot of gasoline driving with human-electric pedal power.
This garage profile for it is solely so I can monitor my efficiency for a while and share the results with this EM community.
Bike was originally a Nashbar 7000 Series aluminum road bike. It was a gift from a coworker in 2006.
As a fully converted eBike it only weighs 44 lbs.
