And that is, San Diego Transit doesn’t want you using their buses for anything as unimportant as getting around town, or even to and from work. The buses don’t go where you need to go, transfers are not available, and all too often there is a gap between the routes you may need to get to where you need to go. And all too often you can find yourself needing to take a roundabout route to get to a place you young folks could easily walk to.
What it comes down to is, I need to get a bike. However, with my heart condition I find I’m going to need what is known as a ebike. That is, an electric powered motorized bicycle. But, I don’t have the money for one. The prices I’ve seen online say between 1k and 2k $, but since I also need a new(er) computer to replace this old thing, that means I’m not going to have the money for an ebike before I get substantially older.
And then I learn that the folks at Amazon have no blinkin’ idea of how to classify ebikes, lumping them in with regular bikes haphazardly. That makes it damn hard to find an ebike I can put on a wishlist. The cybernetics community in this dang reality are just to precious for anyone’s good.
Can you help?
