Pedal assist “E-Bikes” help smooth out those hills. You still pedal and its still your own energy that gets you there. These smart bikes can be set to varying degrees of assist. If they detect you are going up a steep hill they can help you more. If they sense that you are pushing harder on the pedals they can help more. They make commuting in traffic safer because of the “powered assist” they can give you at take off. No more starting wobbles at the traffic lights.
