Love the idea of zipping around town on your bike to fit in a good (eco-friendly) workout, but intimidated by the hills and distance between you and your destination? Try a pedal-assisted electric bike, which can take you 12 to 30 miles on one battery charge. Currie Technologies’ eFlow had the longest-lasting battery, smoothest pedal-assist feature and was more maneuverable than other models we tested. (Bike shown is $3,995, but models start at $500; currietech.com)
