On the hills she slays me and on the flats she is on my tail at 17+mph. I used to have to stop every few miles for her to catch up but not any more . She can do a few 15 milers without running out of juice . She is usually just in Eco mode and then when we hit a hill she bumps it up and leaves me!! It was expensive but worth every penny, we have been together 50 years and ALWAYS shared our love of cycling and now she can join me occasionally.
That is fantastic, we just celebrated 30 years plus a few before that. My wife loves to ride too but we never really did till the last few years but not really much. She has health issue as well so we will be pursuing an Ebike for her, should have done it already.
