Introduction Bicycles are a very cheap, healthy and a simple form of transport available to everyone. Unfortunately bicycles are best suited to flat terrain, which is why they are so popular in holland and the like where there isn’t a hill in sight. However for most of us who live in undulating or worse hilly terrain or countryside cycling soon becomes far more trouble than it’s worth. Peddling up long shallow gradients let alone a hill can drain you of energy and leave you demoralized, panting for breath, and with quivering thighs that no longer seem capable of turning the pedals. Most of the time it is easier to get off and walk, pushing the thing. But it doesn’t need to be this difficult. For now it appears there is a simple solution to cycling’s biggest flaw – use electricity to turn the pedals.
