As a recent Electric Bike owner and rider, road safety is of paramount importance to me and the thousands of bike riders of the Commonwealth. The Bills currently before the Legislature are a bold step in that direction. As the call for more prudent energy use resounds throughout the Planet, universal biking certainly moves the needle toward that target. At 84 years of age, an electric bike offers me a renewed opportunity for transportation, exercise and reliance on a more suitable alternative to fossil fuels.
Please do what is necessary to pave the way for this most prosperous nation to contribute to this worldwide effort and join the less advanced cultures who make biking the norm.
