As the great philosopher Yogi Berra noted, It's tough to
make predictions, especially about the future."

Well, luckily the weather here is intermittent enough that you can get in riding between rainstorms usually. If there is one thing I simply cannot stand it is a stationary trainer.

I find the prediction regarding e-bikes interesting.

Whizzer Company built gasoline motor add-ons for bicycles and later
complete motorized bicycles as far back as 1939, which never became
wildly popular. While today it seems that e-bikes are now on the way
to becoming almost a standard. I read, for example, that home delivery
- Pizza for example - in Singapore is almost all by e-bike.

Why not Whizzer and why e-bike?

As a guess, the weight and size of the motors. Then there is the issue of
faul, unhealthy air. Whilst a hot radiating ICe is good in winter, it is
lousy in summar here.

Tack-on two stroke gas motors are noisy. Its like riding a buzz bomb. I got passed by some dope on a bike with a gas motor, and I thought I was going to get chainsaw massacred.

Weight and size of batteries for e-bikes *must* come down.

The Whizzer used a regular 4 stroke Briggs & Stratten motor if memory
serves. And; I can assure you that it was much quieter than my bored
and stroked 90 cu.in. Harley :-)

Back in the 1940's when I saw the first Whizzer we didn't have "foul
unhealthy air". It hadn't been invented yet :-)
