    Arnold is on an E Bike. I guess he doesn't want to get tired before his workout.

    The inane e-bike snipes are so yesterday. Don't like 'em? Your prerogative -- don't buy one. But man, there are a million good reasons to use them for commuting. One less car, ya know?

    Studies suggest that e-bike/eMTB are 'a gateway drug' to the bicycle world (and towards fitness) for car drivers and adults who haven't touched a bicycle since they were kids, if ever. They get an e-bike for the commute, and later a 'real' bike for the weekend.

    But Arnold, he's got to still have more horsepower than most of us mere mortals, even at 71.

    He's also got piles more muscle mass to move around.

    Running errands/commuting via ebike is, IMO, to be applauded. One less car and all that. I also get a shit ton more done, in a shorter period of time, without being wrecked at the end, when I commute vie ebike.

    Which allows me to do what I'd really prefer to do -- ride dirt, sans motor, sans car.

    The Governator had heart valve surgery April, 2018. Sorry to have contributed to derailing what is in concept, a great idea by Canoe. But have to help set the record straight....
