The Case for Electric Bicycles
by Joelle Novey

"If, like most Americans, you find yourself hopping in your car to drive down the street and around the corner, consider one alternative: "zooming" your way there instead on a quiet and speedy pedal assisted electric bike. Though you may balk at regularly biking more than a mile or two, summer is the perfect time to consider a bike with a little electric "oomph" — a green alternative to driving that doesn’t require you to travel entirely on your own foot or pedal power."
