  1. I would really enjoy using this bike at my lake house! Its country so I can ride for a long long time. Thank you for the opportunity!

  2. Several of our neighbors use their bicycles on a regular basis. It would be fun and would provide exercise and boost fitness levels.

  3. This would be amazing. I would still be able to enjoy the outdoors and fresh air. When I get tired the Bicycle Takes over. Bicycle Riding is now unlimited rather than limited.

  4. So much fun! I have been thinking about how much fun it would be to put one on the back of my husband tour bus. I would take my bike to go tinker around the area where my husbands band would be performing at. 🏍

  5. I would love one of these electric bikes, to travel farther around my neighbourhood, in a safe manner, without putting undue stress on my knee joints.

  6. As we are transitioning into retirement for a healthier lifestyle so appreciate an e-bike. My husband continues to ride but I can never keep up with him. This would be an answer to do this together without having him have to stop so frequently to wait for me!

  7. I WOULD ENJOY ANOTHER OPTION OF GETTING AROUND WHETHER WORK OR VISITING FREIND’S OR PERHAPS CRUISING OUTDOOR’S THANK YOU FOR OPPORTUNITY

  8. My daughters electric scooter was stolen by a “was” dear friend of our family (we pray for the Friend still). And this is what my 10yr old wants now instead. She would completely enjoy it! It would be a great Blessing to Jayanna, my daughter.

  9. i am a disabled Army veteran I served for 24years I would love to have that back to keep me in shape and so i can ride with my Grandkids but just in case I give out of energy I will have the electric bike to help me out Thank you for this opportunity

  10. I desperately need transportation after having mine totaled, along with me, by an underinsured cellphone using idiot whos inadequate coverage didn’t leave enough for another vehicle for me. My uninsured motorist coverage maxed out along with my P.I.P. & my personal health insurance had to pay for my final surgery. The disabilities I am left with make walking far difficult but scootering would be perfect!
    GOD BLESS YOU for giving someone a chance.

  11. I love electric bikes but would love one of my own. Thanks for the opportunity to win! Great and informative post also-thanks

  12. I especially like the Urban Arrow and Xtracycle electric bikes for their practicality and versatility for both work and family uses.

  13. in our time of hardship and the COVD-19 virus to go biking will help you and your family to have have fun and stay healthy

  14. At some point, I won’t have the fitness to ride my bike, then I would miss my ride outdoors, my usual path, and my bench visit with the black squirrels who know me, so an electric bike appeals very much to me.

  15. MORE PEOPLE RIDE BIKES…SHOULD RIDE BIKES…SHOULD GIVE THEM A S GIFTS….AND PRODUCE THEM..THEY HAVE TO BE THE TRANSPORTATION OF THE FUTURE..SAVE.THE.PLANT.RIDE.A.BIKE

  16. My ebike just got stolen from me someone just grabbed it out of my driveway left it for not even 10 min sad I cannot afford another one so this would be a miracle thanks so much for the chance to win

  17. i would love to win this electric bike and get myself some exercise i ve had a very bad year my mother passed away from cov19 on march 16th and now my oldest son who is 32 years old has just found old 2 days ago that he has colon canser my son served in the army to have this now to deal with he has 2 small little boys i just need something to do to get my mind off of the pain i feel i feel helpless winning would mean a lot right now thanks for giving us a chance to try to win this amazing bike

  18. ALTHOUGH I NEED A BIKE FOR MY AGE, THE REAL QUESTION IS WILL IT HANDLE MY WEIGHT. IS THERE A WEIGHT LIMIT ON THESE BIKES?

  19. I had no idea that there were so many electric bikes. I live in a small town where a bike that is electric would be perfect for running around. I think it would be nice to put a fishing pole holder on the bike and go fishing for the day since they get such great mileage per charge. wish everyone the best of luck.

  20. We got to the coast often and would love to show this off around town! Not to mention all the wonderful areas to ride around our home as well!
