Originally my wife was the first to own a Tern GSD, but I was using it so much that in March of 2021 we bought this bike. At the time, my daughter had just become eligible to drive and I made the decision to give her my car and rely on the bike for 90% of my transportation needs. This includes everything from commuting to work, grocery shopping, doctor’s appointments, hardware store runs etc. I average about 300 miles a month which adds up to 2000 total miles since I purchased the bike in March!
My favorite place to ride in Arlington would be the Arlington Loop because that’s my commuter route and I love riding along the river. What I love most about my e-bike is that at 64 years old and with two very bad knees, I can get out and make an impact on traffic congestion, reduce emissions, carry any amount of stuff, and make myself healthier in the process.
