My electic bike helps me ride up hills that for the previous 15 or 20 years I had to walk up.  Good fun around the plains.  Also some interesting days out when I could have used alternatives.  Was very useful for me when there were no trains to Brighton.

Shorter trips for shopping etc, I still use unassisted bikes.

An electric bicycle is a fast and easy way to do lots of "running around" without becoming exhausted or sweaty. An electric bicycle is not an exquisite sports vehicle that tests the limits of human performance. Some people, however, have been known to switch off their battery and use their electric bicycle for exercise.

An electric bike is a kind of powered exoskeleton for the legs. It is a practical machine for going further faster with an incredibly small carbon footprint. It has been said that electric bikes have a smaller carbon footprint than human powered bikes because supplying energy from food is more carbon intensive than electricity. I charge mine from solar panels, I glide through the streets on a sunbeam.
