After months of research, I finally decided to invest in a Trek Allant+ 8s e-bike. My goal is to use this electric bicycle for commuting to work and navigating the city, as well as for a healthier and more eco-friendly lifestyle. Back in college, I didn’t own a car and had a strong aversion to driving. I only acquired my driver’s license at 18, and then didn’t drive again for nearly half a decade.
As someone who primarily used my bike for transportation, I knew that riding in the rain was inevitable. However, the thought of it made me incredibly anxious and uncomfortable. That’s why I made it a personal mission to face my fear and ride through the rain, even if it meant being uncomfortable and dealing with the challenges that come with it. The first few times were extremely difficult. My hands would become unbearably cold and my stomach would churn with nerves as I walked out the door.
