I'm not a pedestrian or a cyclist, but note that many elderly are hard of hearing. They may not hear "on your left". Cyclists need to slow down when approaching peds, and so do those driving motorized mobility scooters.

Back to the exercise and ebikes bit, there are some articles written where the experts have figured out that ebike riders get the same amount of exercise as acoustic bike riders. The reason? Ebike riders go on longer rides. This is true for me. I felt pretty tired and sore of butt after a 44 mile ride this spring. It was up and then back down on gravel and pavement roads. There is no bike infrastructure where I live so I must share roads with cars and trucks.

Of course, this doesn't apply if you aren't pedaling.

I rode a fairly busy trail while traveling. There are no trails where I live. I noticed that most people had their ear buds going and could not hear.

Their are many reviews on utube about all ebikes...alot. i want the rad city folding step thru model so i could carry it inside the back of the suv. I watched reviews by Two Tired Teachers on UT and they have put a few thousand miles on theirs. But Rad bikes were out of stock ....i found a Bagi Bike on craigslist with 40 miles on it...it had sat unused for 2 year and needed a replacement battery....pandemic kept the owner from using it. I spent 450 on a new battery and i have been having a blast.....the one thing i will change is the thumb throttle....it can be pushed by accident when mounting or dismount....i will replace it with a twist throttle...i rarely use the throttle unless its a steep hill coming up. Mine weights about 50 lbs with the battery out...this way i can fold it ...put soft foam between parts and bungy it tight together before lifting it into the back of the suv. One in i work it back where i tie it down to the vehicle hooks on the floor....dont forget to place cardboard between it and the leather seats....dont want to damage the interior or bike
Follow the instructions on charging the battery ...very important!!!! Esp if you are not using it for a month or so....i take mine out once or twice a month when not camping and put 5 miles on it and then recharge....im 66 and its like being a kid again.
