"For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."

EBikes or e-bikes is a term meaning electric (assisted) bicycle - or as short simply "EBike".
Those power-assisted solutions look very promising and interesting, and prefereable sustainable energy solution used and not further nuclear power plants required - this aspect I consider very important.
E-Bikes are very economical ...
E-Bikes use for 100km (62.5 miles) 1-2 kWh electricity, E-Scooters 6-7 kWH. The required electricty comes from a normal electric source in your home. For comparison: in order to express a power of 1 kWh with a gas-based motor 1dl gas is required.

This means, apprx. 2200 miles per gallon (MPG) with an E-bike!
