I have had the opportunity to try out many Electric Scooters and find that in a lot of cases they are exceptional in many ways. They’re light, they’re usually cheaper, they’re compact and super easy to ride. So I thought I would try out some electric bikes and see which is better.
On a chilly winter’s day, Melissa and Michael and I tried out both an E-Scooter and an Electric Bicycle. I must say the ride on the bicycle over the bumps is much nicer (especially the bridge with wooden slats) and I think for longer range commutes where you have a safe spot for storage at home and at work then an e-bike could be a good fit. For me however, I work from home and the bike storage area where I live is …less safe. As a result I need to carry the electric scooter up the stairs and it’s a lot lighter than an e-bike. Overall I find the scooter easier to work with in a city…I can roll it around a grocery store, ride it to soccer practice and if I’m visiting friends, just fold it up and carry it and leave it safely stored until my departure.
Which do you prefer? Electric Scooter or Electric Bicycle?
I’ll be reviewing some E-Bikes in the coming weeks 🙂
