Weak forever or strong tomorrow?
I bike to work year-round (I'm 52) and climb a monster hill that ends at the office. When I first started last year, I felt like dying after climbing at 4 MPH in granny gear. Today I cranked up at 7 MPH in third gear and felt great doing it.
The way to get strong is not to make a hard task easy, but to do the task until it's not hard anymore. Quit whining about steep hills or long rides and CONQUER THEM!
For folks that genuinely can't make it, E-bikes are a good thing and extend their limited capabilities. For 99% of us, they're a wussification device to avoid exercise. Passing people using a motor is no reason to feel smug.
