I've met more than a few people like this.

I used to ride from Boston Harbor over to Trader Joes on Beacon and Harvard after work regularly.
Boston on bicycle is so much easier. Even a quick grocery or dinner meetup in Cambridge was much, much faster by bike. Parking alone makes a bike worth it.

He said that before eBikes he just couldn't physically ride every day, now he is a daily rain-or-shine eCommuter. I think that is super rad on many levels.
