Have you thought of an electric assist bike? I recently rode two different kits that were really inexpensive at only several hundred dollars. Both were in wheel motors and the improvement is massive. Just from two cordless drill batteries at 800 watts, i could fly up hills that would have me at a crawl without assist. Assisting at half the power you pedal will give a range of greater than 20 miles.
