Planning on getting an e-bike, through my company Cycle2Work scheme. Does this make me a lazy fucker?

Been reading up on them and I like the sound of them. I'm not exactly unfit but live in quite a hilly area, so any assistance up steep inclines, will be greatly welcomed :)

I don't know too much about them tbh....I assume you can still ride like a "normal " bike.....but will be heavier.

Do you know which you want?

See 'em all the time round here. They really are idiots.

Making sure I'm visible is something I don't f*ck about with. I have: front and rear reflectors, front and rear flashing lights in daylight/lowlight conditions, fixed and flashing front/rear lights at night, spoke mounted reflectors front and back, reflective rim front/rear tyre, dayglow/reflective rucksack, dayglow/reflective mitts, reflective detailing on my shirt/shorts/socks, and my waterproof winter jacket and gloves are fully reflective.

In fact, because I run on clipless pedals the only legally required reflectors I don't have (which are mandated by the Highway Code) are pedal mounted reflectors. To compensate my shoes have reflective detailing.
Agreed, don't care if I look like Timmy Mallet in day-glo spandex, or a crap mobile Blackpool illuminations. If it means everyone can see you then that will probably save your life one day.

Still looking at all the different makes and models. Want a hybrid one though and the cheaper the better. Cos not only am I a lazy bastard, im also a tight bastard too.
I fancy an ebike for no other reason than I just wanna experience one. From what I've been reading, they are "the future of transport"
