Ride an electric bicycle, everywhere, 31°

Electric bicycles are widely available and an extremely low power low impact way to move your butt around town. Electric bicycles can go anywhere regular bicycles can go, and they're more practical for daily use because the power assist means less sweat. Electric bicycles get you out of your boxes, out of the house, out of the office, out of the car, and place you in the environment. You get to smell the flowers, hear the birds, explore pathways you didn't know existed, and see the world from a different perspective. Electric bicycle energy requirement is equivalent to over 1000 miles per gallon of gasoline.

The action is simple, nearly everybody knows how to ride a bicycle. Electric bicycles are insignificantly different from nonpowered bicycles, especially modern electric bicycles which have lithium battery packs.

To properly replace car driving the electric bicycle needs cargo capacity. This can be done with specific bicycle designs or with trailers.

*sigh*
I wish I could have an electric bike.
Someone should implement a system where you hand over your car and get an electric bike in exchange!
