A look at the global e-biking boom, with electric bikes becoming a common sight on New Zealand's roads and bike trails. With Ted and Margaret Watson, Neil Pollett and Simon Kennett.

We take a spin with an 86-year-old e-biking convert, head to a local ebike shop to see what's on offer with a buyer's guide to e-bikes, and hit the trails to see how human-powered and battery-powered bikes are getting along together on the country's mountain bike tracks and cycleways.
