My daily commute can take anywhere from ten to fifteen minutes, depending on how much power assistance I feel is needed at the moment. In a car this ride would take me 20 minutes during rush hour, plus time to find parking. When I made the decision to get rid of my car, and get a bike, the OHM was the only choice. I needed to find a solution that could get me around the SF hills and not affect my day to day routine.
The bike is extremely versatile, some days I will throttle my way into work with a dress and heels on, the next day I will peddle the whole way in with jeans on. I will take it across town to a pilates class, to dinner with a friend and back home. This weekend I will take it on a bike ride across the Golden Gate bridge and into the mountains. I have saved thousands of dollars by riding an OHM, not to mention helping out the environment.
