Electric Cargo Bike vs. Road Bike-Go By Bike Episode 45

Head to Head!

A little friendly competition – the electric Madsen with 150 lbs of cargo versus the lightweight road bike. Short video today for your enjoyment…

I’m sure there are many road warriors out there who will appreciate that the electric bike is not ALWAYS faster. (However, I’d love to see them tote the 3 children and still be that fast – different strokes for different folks).


Go By Bike is a daily video series that talks about how to be green by riding more and using your car less, including electric bikes, electric kits, cargo bikes, bike safety, and getting motivated to bike

  1. I used to commute (RETIRED!! – Aug 09). In my younger years (I am now ONLY 64!) in N.J., I used to commute with a regular bike, and I would get to work all sweated up(especially when it’s hot out), and would have to change from bike clothes to work clothes. The last few years commuting I was riding either of my two recumbent bikes, and could wear regular clothes because of the type of seat (VERY COMFORTABLE!), and I had the electric drive(NO SWEAT!), but I still had the pedal option to get a workout on the way home, or when I was just out riding. NOTE – in Oklahoma, you are allowed up to 30MPH, and 1000 Watts out.
