If there’s one thing I really hate when cycling it’s the wind. I don’t mind a tail wind pushing me along but I know that when I am enjoying the ease of riding in a tail wind that I will face a head wind at some point, and that is when it is going to become hard work and I will want to give up.
Letting Mother Nature (and the weather) dictate when I go out for a ride isn’t going to happen and one of the reasons I bought an electric bike was to make riding in windy conditions easier, and hence more enjoyable. I wanted a bike I wouldn’t mind chucking my leg over and riding in any conditions, and I thought an ebike was the way forward – hence I pulled the trigger and bought one.
Having owned an electric bike for several months now I thought I would let everyone know what riding an ebike is like in windy conditions and how easy it is, and you can see this in the following video:-
The video footage was captured using a Go Pro Session camera (available from Adorama, Amazon (US), Amazon (UK) or eBay) mounted to a chest strap (also available from Amazon (US), Amazon (UK) or eBay), which I believe leads to some excellent footage.
A relatively new eBike owner and loving the experience – I really wish I had bought an electric bike before
