Ride the YikeBike, eat less?

Why? Not because your food yikes too but because you'll consume less energy when riding the electric YikeBike. According to HuffPost, this is one of the Yikebike's sales points which is based on a study referred to at eBikes. Here's from HuffingtonPost: "The YikeBike runs on electricity and is generally considered more eco-friendly than most cars, but a bike that runs on human pedaling is presumably still better for the environment and human health. That said, an unusual study suggests that compared to regular bicyclists, electric bike users may have a lower environmental impact because regular cyclists consume more food, which increases their energy consumption. Of course, cyclists require more food for exercising, which tends to be considered a good thing, but the YikeBike still references this argument."
