Electric bikes let almost anyone cycle for fun and transport, and they may be the way to finally rid our cities of cars.
Cars are a blight on cities. Roads bisect neighborhoods and pollute our living and working spaces with noise and dirty air. Roads and free parking take up a huge percentage of real estate, and for what? A notion of freedom and convenience.
Removing cars from cities is the way to increase livability, reduce pollution, and free up space for parks and much-needed housing. But we still need to get around, and bikes are one of the best ways to do that.
