E Bikes

Do any of you use an E-bike while RVing ?

My wife and I are going to be using a pair of 20" ebikes. We like to take in as much of the area around where we camp as we can and at 69 I am not up for a LONG walk out and back. With the ebikes we are getting, you have 3 ways to operate them.
#1 manual, you use it like a normal bike.

#2 assist mode, you still pedal but the bike will help.

#3 full electric with a hand throttle.

WE plan on using mode 1 most of the time but after long ride out the assist would be welcome on the way back

For anyone interested in Washington state law for e-bikes
Here's what you need to know about Washington’s new e-bike law - Washington BikesWashington Bikes

As far as I know the federal is about the same.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

We purchased ebikes last year and love them. They help us to go farther than we would otherwise. We used to ride regular bikes a lot but got to the point of wasn't fun any more (the bodies just couldn't do it for long). With the ebikes, it's back to fun. I use the low level pedal assist ( My bike has 3 levels of assist) and that's normally enough. But on occasion, I do need a bit more help getting back.
