Bike riders. You have to hand it to them. They are a hearty bunch and passionate as crap about their sport. Is it a sport, or simply a way to get around. Either way I salute them.

Recently my family and I made a trip to New York City, New York. I was amazed when I saw carriers whizzing through streets. Some of them blowing a whistle to let walkers know they were coming through. And coming through fast.

Recently, I had the opportunity to ride a bike at Sheel's in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I was there for a remote broadcast and had the opportunity to try a bike that had a motor. An electric motor. I have to tell you, it is a game changer.

When I got on the bike, I thought it may take some time getting used to. It didn't. The best way I can describe the feeling riding this mechanical dream is your already headed downhill with a nice tailwind. Even if you are on a slight incline. I

The bike was easy to figure out and EASY to ride. When I took it back to the rack I noticed, that PUSH you get comes with a price. If you zoom in in the price tag you'll see that it's just under $3500.

I say, if you have the wallet and like to ride and appreciate a boost once in a while give it a try. Electric bikes. Who knows maybe the price of gas goes up to $15 a gallon and we're all driving one in a few years.

Thanks for sharing this story with all your bike riding friends.
