Time in the Saddle is a podcast series hosted by avid cyclist and radio veteran, Ryan O’Connor focusing on all things exciting in the world of cycling. In the fourth episode of season two, Ryan and Jason Lind talk about the benefits of an e-bike and, why you should get one.

In this episode, Ryan O'Connor and Jason Lind chat about e-bikes and how it enables ordinary people concerned with their fitness levels to reach places they wouldn't ordinarily reach.

Why should you have it in your arsenal? Because on a... Friday when you're training for an (Cape) Epic and you're doing four, five, six hours in the saddle and you really don't feel like getting up on a Saturday or Sunday, guess what: bring out the e-bike, you'll love getting out and loosening the legs.

Concerned that your fitness levels won't get you to the top of the hill? Buy an e-bike.

Later, Ryan talks about his personal experiences riding to work on the e-bike.

You just feel like you want to push yourself a lot further in terms of distance and mileage.

Ryan O'Connor – Kfm 94.5 radio presenter

My next concern is... because it's a heavier bike, you actually go through tyres quite quicker.

Ryan O'Connor – Kfm 94.5 radio presenter

What you have to be careful of, is to actually use the spread of the gears because people are actually wearing out the cassettes quite quickly.
