Thinking of getting an electric bike?
Here are our top 3 reasons why they’re a great mode of transportation,
for both city dwellers and countryside homeowners alike.
Get where you’re going, faster
Electric bikes are faster than traditional road bikes, walking, and even the average speed of traffic.
For city dwellers who commute to work by car know that traffic can be unpredictable — car congestion during peak hours can transform a 20-minute drive into one hour.
But with a battery-powered e-bike reaching up to 28mph, you can bypass those roadblocks altogether, just like a motorcycle would.
This is one of the top benefits of an electric bicycle: maneuvering on an open road with complete freedom and ease to get where you need to go — on time and without breaking a sweat.
Encourage An Active Lifestyle
An electric bike is a great antidote to a sedentary lifestyle.
It’s not only a great motivator to get outside and enjoy the day, but it also encourages fitness on a regular basis.
When you invest in an electric bike, you’ll begin to carve out time in your day-to-day schedule to go for a ride or use it twice daily on your commute to and from work.
For most people, it’s an added benefit,
that you can choose how much effort you want to exert when you pedal,
using more body power for a harder workout.
You can also easily switch between low intensity to medium intensity throughout your entire ride.
While one ride won’t make a huge difference to your lifestyle, regular physical activity can lead to significant changes in your overall health and wellbeing.
Some of the benefits of regular bike riding include decreased stress levels, improved joint mobility, and stronger bones.
Not to mention riding a bike (and electric bike) boost endorphins naturally, the hormone which affects your happiness. Use your electric bike to complement or take the place of your gym routine.
Take half-day or full-day rides
Electric bikes are amazing for recreational riders as they can carry you up to 29 miles+.
Most regular bike riders need to train for long-distance rides that an e-bike rider can complete easily.
Just make sure to top up your battery charge before heading out on the streets;
long-range battery life means that you can ride for a half or full-day without any concern for how much battery you have left.
This goes for all types of terrains and weather conditions.
