e-Bike weekend excursions
I use my weekends to see new things and explore all of the wonders the Bay has to offer. But in a car, what you see is restricted mostly to what’s in front of you--and it’s difficult to stop on a dime and investigate further.
My GenZe e-bike changed all of that. On my e-bike, I feel like a professional cyclist. Where I used to tire out at around 15 miles in, now a 30 or even 40-mile trip is a walk in the park. With the flexibility to ride when I want, use pedal-assist for tough inclines, and throttle when I want to just take it all in, I feel in total control of my ride, and the journey ahead.
Last weekend I crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and explored Marin. The week before I rode all the way down to Half Moon Bay! My GenZe e-bike makes the Bay area feel so much smaller, and as flat as a pancake.
Running errands on my 2.0
My weekends are spent tackling the never-ending to do list. Pick up the dry-cleaning, go to the farmer’s market, head to the bank, and try to slip a yoga class along the way. And living up in the hills, this can take some effort. Everything twists and winds, so no task is next store to the next. Between finding parking, maneuvering the hills, and getting stuck in traffic, I’m exhausted after the first stop
With my GenZe 2.0, I have never felt more productive. I can finish all of my errands, carry everything I need with me, and have a blast along the way. Parking is a breeze, traffic is non-existent, and the hills are a ton of fun.
Running errands is now an opportunity to get some much needed “me” time, and make an extra stop or two to just take it all in.
e-Bike park tours
I love spring and fall in Portland. It’s the time you can especially see all of the beauty that Portland has to offer. Trees and flowers are in bloom, and the air is crisp and breezy. A stroll through Laurelhurst Park is my favorite way to start or end any day.
I have a goal of visiting all of Portland’s 279 parks at some point. Knocking new parks off my list turned out to be tougher than I imagined. Parking isn’t always easy, and biking there would wear me out before I had the chance to enjoy the scenery. With my GenZe e-bike I’ve been able to see parks I never would have biked to before, and explore the parks in all their glory.
Tryon creek, Powell Butte, Peninsula Park, even Forest Park all became quick jaunts that used to require a car or Tri-met. Now I can ride where I please, and see more of this beautiful city.
From eastside to westside
While the Willamette gives Portland its signature bridge-scape and unique beauty, getting across it seems like driving all the way to Seattle--especially when it’s just for a quick errand.
With my GenZe 2.0 that all changed. Zipping over the river became my favorite errands of the week. I started taking different routes to experience each bridge on my GenZe. In a car or on the bus you feel trapped traveling inch by inch, but on my 2.0 I felt connected with the bridge just gliding along, and seeing Portland from a new point of view.
When I dreaded going to the Westside I only had half of the city at my disposal –my 2.0 gave me the key to the city!
e-Bike by train or by sea
I live in Oakland, and work in the city. And I am grateful to have so many options for getting to work. I can drive (although just thinking about bridge traffic gives me a mild panic attack), take BART, hop on a bus, or ride the Ferry. This plethora of options is great for crossing the Bay, but still leaves me with the challenge of getting to and from each station, stop, or dock.
That’s where my GenZe e-bike comes in. I can breeze to the train, Ferry or bus stop, bring my e-bike aboard with me, and then cruise to work quickly from my stop in SF. This saves me time searching (not to mention paying) for parking in Oakland, and then walking or taking a cab once I’m over in SF.
The best part is I have the freedom to change my plans quickly. Sometimes I’ll stay for Happy Hour with work colleagues, go check out a show, or take the long way home to catch the sunset. It also gives me the opportunity to give the motor a break, and squeeze in some exercise!
Maneuver across town
San Francisco traffic takes congestion to a new level. Roads are backed up for no clear rhyme or reason at almost every hour of the day. And once you arrive at your destination, it’s standard procedure to spend an extra 20 minutes finding a viable parking space.
While my GenZe 2.0 didn’t fix the city’s problems, it made my life 1,000 times easier. The connected app reveals all available routes friendly to a 30mph speed. And even though that’s almost 80% of the roads in the city---those are never as congested as the main thoroughfares. Once I arrive to my destination, my compact GenZe 2.0 fits into the nooks and crannies between driveways and poorly parked cars, so I can get to where I’m going on time, and in good spirits.
It’s hard to picture life before my GenZe 2.0, but I’m glad that chapter is over, and excited for the journey ahead.
Having an e-bike gives me the feeling of freedom I had as a kid riding bikes around the neighborhood. I can shoot up to Berkeley faster than public transit, get into the hills to go hiking, head downtown to see a movie, and have the e-bike help me back if my legs are tired. My GenZe e-Bike is also great for getting me to and from the city, whether I choose to take it on BART, or use the AC Transit bus system.Read More
