Riding an electric bike is a philosophical adjustment. The first time you glide past a long-time bike commuter on their speedy everyday whip, you will feel like a bougie jerk. But no one’s stopping them from going electric.
If an electric motor gets you outside, reduces fossil fuels, and reduces congestion, I think it’s worth it. Over the past few years, we’ve tried almost every kind of ebike there is, from heavy-duty cargo bikes to high-end mountain bikes. Whether you’re taking the kids to school or hauling yard equipment to and from the hardware store, these are our favorite electric bikes.
