The Pope and his new Electric Bike

I recently posted Alexei Sayle and his new electric bike.  It’s good to see well know people adopting and electric bike and using it.

Other celebrities that have been caught on an E-bike? Ed Begley jr, Darryl Hannah, William Shatner, Prince Charles, Leo DiCaprio, Arnold Schwartzenegger, Adam savage (from “Mythbusters”), Miley Cyrus…

It’s good to see an actual posting.  A few months ago Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG (the parent corporation of Mercedes Benz) personally delivered an electric bicycle Pope Francis…a Daimler Smart E-bike. (which is of course a very smart electric bike)

Pope Francis and his new electric bike

Pope Francis has rejected expensive personal luxury lifestyle that previous popes had been criticized over, and has been very vocal about encouraging the people of the world to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle. Good on him for that. I hope he gets around the vatican well on that and also that he ventures out onto the streets of Rome on it and mixes with the dare devil scooters. May he go further and be as humble as His Holiness The Dalai Lama, (and may the Dalai also adopt an e-bike to get around the steep hills of Dharamsala).
