6 Reasons to Try an Electric Bike

We’re living in the future! In all aspects, technology has improved our lives, whether that be through breakthrough medicines, renewable energy or new sporting ideas to keep us active (and living) longer… one of these changes is electric bikes. You may have already seen one of these zipping through your streets. The question is, is it worth all the hype?

But, why exactly is this such a good idea? Here are 6 Reasons that will remove all your doubts and make you think about purchasing an E-bike… prepare for the best ride of your life!

#1. Arrive Sweat-Free

Electric bikes employ a system known as pedal-assist. This means that the motor gives you an added boost as you pedal, amplifying your efforts. Top speeds can be as much as 28 mph with minimum effort. Climb up hills with relative ease. So if you plan to use your new e-bike for getting from point A to point B, like on a daily commute, you can dress for work and needn't worry about arriving to the office needing a shower.

#2. E-Bikes are Fast and Flexible

E-bike technology gives you the extra oomph you need to cover miles of distance with little effort. You can also still take advantage of the multi-purpose bike lanes and paths that are traffic free.

Current e-bikes now look almost like a normal bike frame, with only the subtle ‘hum’ giving them away.

#3. E-Bikes change lives!

For some people, injuries, medical issues and/or aging have limited their ability to live the lifestyle they want to or once did. E-bikes make it possible for almost anyone to get outside and enjoy the simple pleasures of riding a bike. E-bikes can be truly life-changing. We've seen it!

#4. Save money

If you use an E-bike instead of a motor vehicle it will save you money in the long run. Gas prices don't look like they'll be coming down significantly anytime soon, and occasional price surges can really impact on your budget. While with E-bikes, you can buy affordable batteries which can last you 18-50 miles after a full charge depending on the level of assistance you use.

#5. They're good for the Environment

E-bikes emit lower pollution per mile than motorcycles and cars. You can help by using an E-bike instead of a gas-burning car. They use energy with an average rate of 100 to 150 watts compared to 15,000 or so for a car. As a result, this can help to improve air quality.

#6. Improve your fitness

Although cycling with an E-bike is pedal assisted, it's still an exercise after all and therefore good for your health, both mentally and physically. If improved fitness is your focus, there are performance oriented e-bikes.
