A little about me, I am overweight. I am somewhat immobile in that I can’t walk very far unassisted. I haven’t been able to ride a bike in 10 years. Until today! I got my Aveny 3 days ago and have put 30 miles on it already. That may not seem very far, but I haven’t been able to leave my yard, much less my neighborhood. I zipped all over town! I used the throttle to get moving initially and then the pedal assist. I cheated and many times just used the throttle to give myself a rest. It is awesome! I don’t like writing reviews, but I am so ecstatic that I had to. Thanks blix... you gave me part of my life back!
