You can ride for longer, or for the same distance with minimal effort. A motor flattens out the topography, making hilly rides in normal clothes a reality. You can go off exploring up that hill or down that path without worrying about it being a waste of your limited energy. You can sail up the long fire road climb to where the fun starts. And then when you reach at the bottom you can sail up it again. It`s very liberating. It changes the nature of climbing completely, especially on a mountain bike. What used to be the slog to get to the good bit now becomes a good bit in itself. You get to enjoy the whole of the ride.
