Ahead of my 50th birthday in 2018, I wanted to find a way add much-needed exercise into my sedentary life. I decided to take the plunge in March 2018, with the Cafe by Vintage Electric Bikes.
I now commute to work (weather permitting) plus put in longer evening and weekend rides; closing in on 6,200 miles in my first 16 months. I'm getting far more exercise than ever before, and it is actually enjoyable -- therefore, sustainable for me!

eBike since March 2018. Losing weight, commuting, and improving my fitness, all of which is surprisingly fun with an ebike!

My early-90's Bianchi Advantage, a pedal-only 21-speed, was reintroduced to riding in July 2019.
