This is a really good idea. I considered an ebike when I was regularly cycing to work. But wasn't sure it would benefit me much as I was reasonably fit back then. If I could have borrowed an ebike to try my actual commute route with, it would have been very helpful. Contrast this with buying a new car, where there's no doubt over the time or effort the new car will take, only whether you like the comfort and feel of it. Yet car dealerships will often loan cars for a customer to try over a whole weekend.
