Fully-Charger-eBike & Fully Charged The Show — So Lovely, And Perhaps Safer

  • Published on September 1st, 2016 by

“Cycling along on a fantastic state-of-the-art, ebike. … Oh, Lord,” Robert Llewellyn exclaims.

“Wow, that is amazing. Cause that is so easy now when I am peddling that slowly. Oh, there’s one of those red light things.”

Ben Jaconelli joins Robert on the street:

“It’s nice to stop you know because you can just get away up to fifteen again.

“I  think that’s one of the good things as well. It’s like kind of …  a safety aspect. A lot of worldwide e-bikes would be safer than the normal traditional cycles — because a lot of the cyclists in London work so hard the whole time. They’re kind of willing to take unnecessary risks — to keep their speed up. On an ebike, it’s actually a pleasure to stop and pick up your speed again.”

Robert comments again: “That is so lovely. The way … it is so easy to catch up.”

Ebike entrepreneur Jaconelli chimes in: “It’s like switching from a video cassette, which I consider a normal bike, to an Apple Macbook. It’s such a huge jump. And once you’re familiar with it, you would not want to go back to the video cassette — apart from the odd old classic.”

This is from another weekly episode of Robert Llewellyn’s “Fully Charged.” This one is about a form of EVs he doesn’t typically cover — electric bikes, of course.

A pedestrian and former bike commuter as well, I drive an emissions-free Nissan LEAF. As lovely and smooth as the Nissan Leaf is, I don’t enjoy being inside a vehicle with so many plastics. It is a wonderful nostalgia I feel watching this video. I miss the outdoors — the wide-open spaces of bicycling. Thank you to Ben and Robert for the lively conversation — bringing the outdoor travel experience to life. If only cyclists had emissions-free roads to bicycle on. If only we had an urban infrastructure of protected bicycle routes in this country. If only drivers all drove emissions-free vehicles. If only we had emissions-free bicycle paths. If gas cars disappeared, people across the planet would enjoy longer and more vital lives.
