It’s Definitely Different

“You look pretty sassy sitting on your new electric bicycle,” my wife said.

“Oh don’t feed me that bullshit,” I said. “I honestly don’t know if I’m really ready to tackle riding an electric cycle.”

She smiled at me. “I’m sure you can tackle riding an ebike. How different can it be from riding a regular bicycle? Just don’t, you know, fumble the proverbial ball when you’re humming along at 30 miles an hour.”

It was about two hours later when I called my wife from the emergency room. “Come pick me up. I fumbled badly. And, by the way, it’s definitely different.

Written for these daily prompts: Fandango’s One/Word Challenge (sassy), The Daily Spur (feed), JusJoJan (cycle), Ragtag Daily Prompt (ready), E.M.’s Random Word Prompt (fumble), and My Vivid Blog (humming).

By the way, I know many of you know that my wife and I recently got ebikes, and the experience of riding an ebike is definitely different than riding a regular bicycle. But this post is purely fiction and I haven’t had to go to the ER due to riding my ebike. Not yet, anyway.

    30mph is pretty speedy, I imagine that would take a little getting used to. Hope the time on your bikes continues to be fun and safe!
