Vancouver resident Steve Vanderwoerd took advantage of Momentum Magazine’s Bicycle Lending Library last month and put some e-bikes to the test. His questions? Who might benefit from an e-bike? How long can the battery really go? How far can you get in an hour? And how much time (and energy!) can be saved when the grade kicks up? 

In his first post he talks big picture, looking at whether e-bikes are worthwhile and in the second, he puts an OHM e-bike to the test, commuting across Vancouver to Simon Fraser University, which just happens to be on the top of a mountain. He talks price, battery life and who he thinks could benefit most from an e-bike.
