As often as you can, you ride your bike to work. You got into your technology career because you believe the future lies in innovation, and that means moving away from transportation options that create pollution, energy dependency and catastrophic loss of life. Instead, you invested in a cutting-edge electric bicycle that gives you everything you're looking for.
Here's the problem: Most people haven't made that change. On your commute, you still have to share the road with thousands of drivers in their cars, trucks and SUVs. Not only are you conscious of the noise and the pollution, but you feel well aware of the risks you face. On the e-bike, you're very exposed. If one of those drivers makes just one mistake at the wrong time, it could be you who ends up taking an expensive ambulance ride to the hospital.
