Bike to School?

If you do, then tell us what you think of the electric bike you see on Tuesday.  Would you want something like that to get to school, or do you prefer pedal power?

Now I know that some of you guys are gonna think what I did:  It ought to be faster.  You might be more likely to buy it if it went 40 miles an hour instead of 20.  But this story isn't about speed; it's about getting somewhere without having to pedal.  And we'd like to know if that would make you any more willing to travel by bike.

    I drive to school and walk home!

    Its either walk or bike. All human powered. Save some energy and some money.

    i think its a great way to get to work and back. My dad bikes to his work at lest once a week. I try to bike everywhere also.

    We are reminded that the Artic ice would melt in 2 years if the gasoline is spent like the present state, For the love of seals, use this bike! It's good at speed, it doesn't let out gases...what could be better?

    What does 'Feedback' means?

    I'd like to go everywhere by bike, but I don't know how to ride a bike,haha

    Definitely this would be my choice because I won't need to worry about the gas. I would not need to worry about getting anywhere at anytime. For example if a friend of mine called me and told me to come to a party, I would then will not need to tell him taht I don't have a car home. But yes the one problem will this would be rain and snow, or in other states hurricanes and earth quakes... also what if it is so windy then what is the gurantee this bike will function.

    I like good old fashioned pedaling. Whats the point of having legs if your not going to use them? Any way pedaling is also heathy. It strengthens your legs and helps you lose weight.

    Electric bikes sound like a really cool alternative to cars. I think kids would love to ride them places. They not only provide another way to get around, but they let you have fun while doing it. I would definetly get one if I could.

    April 21, 2009 at 8:50 am |
  10. John

    Well the electric bike seems like a good investment, but the only thing i really worry about is looking like a dork while driving to my job. Can you imagine getting asked by a co worker "What do you drive to work?"
    and then you say " I drive an electric bike that goes 20mph, it is almost like driving a scooter." then once again your co workers would laugh at you, like you don't have enough stress on your hands. So, no, i wouldnt be favored to riding an electric bike, eventhough it would help the environment.

  11. Hunter

    I'd much rather ride my bike to school than have to ride in a car for 20 minutes. This new electric bike is great because now i can do this without as much energy being used in my efforts to get to school. Now I just need to live closer to school...

    April 21, 2009 at 8:53 am |
  12. CJ

    I think that having an electric bike is much easier to get to school than have to pedal all the way.Also you will be going a little bit faster.So in my opinion its a good thing, but you need tot ake into consideration the batteries.If you don't dispose of them properly they may pollute the enviroment even more, but overall it's an excellent idea.

    If gas prices keep going the way they are my mom might not beable to bring me to school in the mornings. A bike would really help my parents with gas so I think the bikes are a goodc idea.

  14. Sara

    I agree that it's good for the economy and the enviroment, but I personally wouldn't bike to school if my life depended on it. I'm too scared to get hurt in a automobile accident of some kind...until I start to see more bicycles on the road, I'll be just fine riding in a car to school and then carpooling home.

    April 21, 2009 at 8:58 am |
  15. Guy

    First of all, if the top speed was any higher, I think the number of crashes in the U.S. would increase dramatically, because bikes don't have an age limit. Do you really think an eight year old kid should be riding at 40 mph. What a tree just happens to be in the middle of his path. I actually think it would depend on price, because I would pedal anyway because of the exercise.

  16. Chad

    I feal that riding an electric bike to school does give energy efficency, but it won't help the environment a noticable amount unless the bikes were inexpensive enough for most average families to own one. Although I do think it is a good idea.

    I don't bike to school, because I live right next to it. But I would buy an electric bike to ride around town. I love feeling the breeze whistle through my hair... I mean the holes in my helmet.

    An electric bike is good for kids like me. I'm 18 years old and have never learned how to ride a bike! This would save me a lot of time when i need to get some where in a hurry!

    Although it isn’t as warm and comfortable as a car, a battery-operated bike helps the environment and cuts a lot of pollution. As people who currently take regular bikes to work, it would save them sweating on the way to work and time getting there. It may not be too convenient for others, though, if they live very far away. It could be a pain, and might cause them to be late for work. Over all, I think it is a very good idea.

    April 21, 2009 at 9:50 am |
  21. Chloe

    First of all biking to school would probably save you time depending on where you live. If you are in a crowded city, biking through traffic would easily save you time. But in a county like this it would take a heck of a lot longer, and then, whether rural, suburban, or urban, the risk of theft or vandalism is much higher as opposed to a car.

    April 21, 2009 at 9:53 am |
  22. Brandy

    I would use the electric bike to travel back, and forth to school. I would because it helps the Earth. It does, because less pollutants are going into the atmosphere compared to cars. If every person rode one of these bikes to school then the effect on Earth would be astronomical.

    April 21, 2009 at 9:53 am |

    I think that the electric is cool because we don't have to pedal. I think it would be kind of cool to ride to school with that kind of bike.

  27. robby

    that would be cool ... and i wish i had a bike like that.

    ...the only problem my parents won't let me bike to school which is about 5 miles away.
    anyways i would prefer the electric bike because.
    1- you can just let the elctricity work it ,
    2- you can pedal
    that would be the bike for me...........

    April 21, 2009 at 10:16 am |

    yeah it would because it would be a lot more fun to do and you could show it off to friends by the way you should work on your jokes

  34. John

    I think I would bike to work. It is good for the Earth and is probably cheaper! However I would only go on this superbike if I didn't have to pedal at all. If I could go there and back without pedaling I see no reason not use that bike instead.

    April 21, 2009 at 1:12 pm |
  35. Chaise

    I think that those bikes would be awesome to have but the question is how much would they cost?? I think that if they were expensive then that might be the problem of lots of people getting them.....

  36. James

    yes this is what we need maybe we can make a new GM for bikes because the cars just aint working. Maybe we could not make them so pricey to because then it will be just like the old GM. And plus it would be pretty sweet if the school would let us

    April 21, 2009 at 1:20 pm |

    Yes I would love to have one of them to go to school. I like pocket rockets and that would be even better because I don't get to ride my bike a lot because I live in the country I usually just ride my four wheeler.

    Biking to school is a good idea Because it saves energy. I thing it's a good Idea because it will save gas and not pollute the earth. I would bike to school but I live like 10 miles away. At the same time the energy powered bike is not helping you loose any weight/ burn calories.

    April 21, 2009 at 1:24 pm |
  41. Mckenna

    I think it's a pretty god idea. If you only live around the corner from your job why don't people just ride their bike instead of taking a car. I want one though it seems pretty fun.

    This is ridiculous. This bike is just going to make people lazy because they do not have to pedal. What is the point of buying a bike if your not going to pedal the bike. If people are buying a bike so that they do not have to pedal the bike, then they should just drive to work.

    Well...I take a bus because I live to far away from the school, but I'd prefer regualr biking over an electric one, a regular one is proaably much safer and an electric bike seems lazy...people can get a lot more exercise if they just use a regular bike. And regular biking is better for the enviornment.

    April 22, 2009 at 8:48 am |
  64. Carl

    The whole point of a bike is to pedal. If you are going to use one of these electric bikes to get to school you might as well get a moped or something, They are probably cheaper and more effective. If people want to get a bike its because they actually want to pedal not just ride. If they wanted to ride they would get another type of vehicle.

    April 22, 2009 at 8:54 am |
  65. Laura

    think it is great that you can bike to school. It would be a lot healthier then riding in a car. In a car we are lazy. If we could get out and move around on a bike we would have a lot better life and the earth would be less polluted then it is.

    April 22, 2009 at 9:06 am |
  66. Evan

    I prefer to use a bike, in this way would get exercise (to stay in shape) and it would help to save the earth. Instead of being lazy and trying to act cool with an electric bike help yourself stay in shape and get a real bike.

    April 22, 2009 at 9:12 am |

    this is a joke I guess its ok if you are trying to save up gas money but come on you lazy people you can pedal!

  68. Meghan

    Not pedaling takes all the work out of biking. One of the reason people bike to school is take get a little bit of exercise. If you rode an electric bike, you wouldn't be doing anything active. You might as well be riding in a car. Our generation needs to get active.

    April 22, 2009 at 9:29 am |
  69. Grace

    This is an interesting way of getting to work and school but I live really far away from school. And you also need electricity to fuel the bike so there are some flaws... Why not just ride a real bike it saves electricity and keeps your body fit. And when you get to work/school you can put on some deoderint, or spray on some perfume/cologne.

    Environmenatally, the electric bike is good. It would also reduce the amount of fuel usage that we might need for other important things. And personally, if the world were to run out of fuel, there would be a whole lot less fat people because they would have to walk to wherever they were going. So yeah, the bike is good.

  78. George

    I'd do it. And after reading the past comments saying you can't pedal, that's a lie. Like in the broadcast for it, it has pedals on there, and she said you can still pedal. Anyways, yes I would. It can help you if you get tired, it's not much money (Proably 100-200 dollars. Regular price of a regular bike right?) and it helps the Earth. Totally good idea! 🙂

    The electric bike is awesome. Thatʻs cool how technology can make a bike go without pedaling. That will make me want to ride a bike more because I can go a lot faster than usual. Riding a normal bike is fun but an electric one would be more exciting.

  86. Lee

    I think the bike is an amazing idea, and I'll have to see about getting one. While it doesnt max out at tops speeds. It seems perfect for commutes that are within a couple of miles. It's clean. Perfect for someone who's place of occupation isnt far. I think inventions or improvements like this should be promoted more.

    April 23, 2009 at 3:24 pm |
  87. Gabby

    Absolutely! This bike is a great way for transportation!

    It's quick, eco-friendly, and gives you some exercise!
    It would bring the obesity rate DOWN because of that exercise.

    I live about 6 miles away from my school, so I couldn't really do anything except ride the bus (Which is a good idea too!) or get a ride from my dad, but it's still a great idea!

    That bike was pretty cool that we saw on Tuesday's show. I think it would be quick, eco-friendly, and you would not have to buy gas!! The down side is that it only goes like 25 mph, sp when you are on the bypass and everyone is going 65mph they just might leave you in the dust....plus if you were running late, you'll be even later! But over all I think it could help out the economy.

    While electric bikes are a good convenience, that doesn’t make it much easier to get to where you need to go. If people want to help with carbon emissions and greenhouse gasses and even the economy, they would carpool or take public transportation.

    We think that is an excellent way to travel. You can get exercise by pedaling, but when you have to get somewhere far away you just stop pedaling and zoom... off you go.

    If i wasn't so paranoid of bugs and other things like that, I would bike to school! I am all for saving the planet. Also if school wasn't so far away and the roads had bike lanes. Hey that's another problem: more roads need bike lanes so it would be possible to ride a bike to school and work without being hit by a car or something.

    yes i think i would by a bike like that because i live in a small town called elmira in souther ontario in canada and the biger city of waterloo is about
    10 minutes away by car but it can be a pain to bike there so if i didn't have to peadle as much it would give my more freedom so ya i would buy rhat i guess

    Yes, we would prefer electric power because our school is far from where we live.

    I would want to ride an electric bike because it is not a lot of work and because if you are going somewhere nice and your hair is fixed and u look nice when you get there you might look sweaty and your hair might not be nice anymore.

    Well I don't bike to school all the time but if when I start again I would defiantly ride on one of those!!!

    We would rather use the electric bike. You would get to school faster and you wouldn't have to use as much strength. Also you wouldn't be tired and sweaty when you get to school.

    Well i thought that the electric bike was pretty nice. I'd say that would be alot more resourseful and helpful to our planet. Even if you like to pedal you could because it's like any other bike. So i say its a good idea!! ^_^

    Right now I am an eighth grader and next year I will be in high school. My dad cannot drive me to school next year, and it would be a really long walk to get there if I were to walk. So, I will have to take the city bus everyday. Uggghhh, I really, really, really don't want to but it is really my only choice. The thought of buying an electric bike sounds cool, but those things don't go very far without dying. My younger brother has an electric scooter he bought from my cousins friend, and he never rides it because he can't go far at all before it needs charging.

    Plus, at the school I am going to for high school, you are required to wear a "professional outfit," exceot on Mondays which is "free-dress day." Anyway, I would really not want to ruin my nice clothes riding (or driving) to school everyday on an electric bike. Although, I could wear something different to school and then change into my "school clothes" when I get there. Hmmmmm.... I'll talk with my dad about it. Though, he'd probably make me pay for it (or at least most of it) myself.

    Otherwise, I think it's a good idea for people to start walking, riding their bikes, and taking public transportation anyway, so, this I guess is even better. But, it also does take the "exercise" part of it out, because a bike is used to peddle. Every once in a while, I would maybe use an electric bike (becuase they're super fun!) but for now I'll just stick with my normal bike.

    I wouldn’t always use the electric power on the bicycle because it would defeat one of the purposes of a bicycle, getting exercise. It would make going farther, easier on your bicycle as you could switch to electric power once you get tired. It would be how I used a bike with electric power.

    The electric bike seems like an amazing invention. It would increase transportation for those who cannot drive, or those who would like to conserve energy. The only problem with it is that it has the potential to make people lazier than they already are. There needs to be a feature which repuires you to pedal on your bike to produce more energy to your bikes movement

    I really thought taht the point of biking to scool was excersise, these will allow us to move faster though.

    I think you ride a regular bike. It would never hurt to get a little exercise. Plus, those bikes can run out of power, but the normal kind can't.

    i wouldn't like that at all i would prefer to walk or use a pedal bike. the reason is because i am trying to loose wait and that is not the way to go. that would make it easer to travel and i would use but not to ride to school i would like to ride it for a while and i think that is a pretty cool.

    I think that biking to school would be great, if I didn’t live too far away. If I lived closer to my school, I think I would certainly bike to school, or walk at least. That would be fun, and also good for the environment. I think that it is extremely bad when people drive a car to somewhere close, instead of walking and it really is Über lazy.
