Ditch the Golf Carts
Grab a Sondors E-bike Instead!
If you’re an RVer, you’ve seen the golf cart craziness in parks and campgrounds across the country. You know what I’m talking about… the lady who walks her dog by riding around slowly in her golf cart while the poor pooch keeps a steady pace beside her. Or what about the man who decked his cart out with a disco ball fro the Saturday Night parties at the park pavilion and added two 10’ subs to keep the party going all week long. Let’s not forget the clever gent who started his own campground taxi service, with his golf cart, to pick you up and take you to the front office, laundry room, or the clubhouse for a small fee?
While these sights are pretty normal for RVers, anywhere else they would be considered downright lazy. They’re all examples of how golf carts have made their way into the typical life of RV travelers across the country, and how folks find ways to use them instead of getting exercise that could keep them healthy and make them feel good!
I’ll be honest- I used to want a golf cart.
I really did. I thought it would be awesome to ride around cruising’ inside the park, instead of walking, driving or God forbid having to ride my bike up the hill to the front office (because there’s always a hill…), but then I got a Sondors. A Sondors Fold to be exact! This is the bike for active RVers, and most definitely for millennials.
What’s the big deal?
Hello? It’s an e-bike that folds! As if that wasn’t enough, it’s really affordable! Like you can grab one for under 1K and if you don’t need it to fold, that drops to under $500. I know! It’s crazy! But the best part of it all is the amount of fun you’ll have riding it and how great you’ll feel each time!
For starters, Sondors makes a great product at an affordable price. The Fold happens to fit perfectly in my trunk, so I can just pop it in there and head to the beach or an awesome trail with it, like most recently when I headed down a long dirt road in the mountains of Arizona, to a local winery for a wine tasting & tour. (I would have driven myself over, but the bike was way more fun and an easy option. So I took it instead!)
This e-bike can be used in 3 different ways, so its super flexible to the needs of the rider.
- You can ride it like a traditional bike if you want to get from point A to B with no fuss, a good bit of exercise and look good doing it.
- If you want to go farther with less effort, you can pump up the 5 level pedal assist and lessen your effort while adding a few extra miles to the odometer with little resistance on things like hills and off-road terrain.
- Or you can just hold down the thumb throttle and glide everywhere you want to go for about 20 miles or so, at a top speed of 20mph, this is where the fun happens!
Riding an e-bike is what I consider the new way to get around. We’re currently on the West Coast and it seems everyone has these things! You see them at the beach, local parks, parked outside gas stations and groups of folks riding different colors in the downtown areas.
It’s eco-friendly, affordable, and makes sure you get a healthy dose of exercise while running errands or simply cruising up and down in a new location. Think about how awesome it would be to pull into your next RV park and find a tribe of folks out zipping around on their e-bikes instead of those golf carts, you see now!
What’s not to love?
On your next road trip or Workamping adventure consider the possibilities to explore locally with an e-bike such as this! When we visited New York City for the summer, I would have loved to have had one of these for each of us!
Being stuck in traffic for quick trips to Liberty State Park, the local library, the grocery store and the billions of local farmers markets was not ideal! We lost out on soooo much valuable time- just sitting in the car listening to the kids complain about how much traffic there was and how the Uber delivery guy on the bike.. “had the right idea!’
We could have had some extra special moments with these babies and not just in New York! These would have been perfect in San Diego, Palm Springs, the Oregan Coast and probably the Redwoods! Since they have fat tires- you can take them on some pretty rough terrain without being nervous about tires popping or being thrown off by a piece of gravel!
Gotta love it!!!
