Why You Need an Electric Bicycle

People Around the World Love E-Bikes — Here’s Why They’re Using Them And You Should, Too

Bicycling is the way of the future — while cycling enthusiasts have been on this trend for a while, the pandemic has accelerated the way of bike commuting and bike-share programs.

Even urban planners are adapting for this new way of travel by prioritizing bike-lanes in major cities to ensure greater opportunities for socially-distanced commutes.

While attitudes are shifting toward cyclings, so too are the bikes.

the electric bicycle — also known as e-bikes — which are not only getting more media attention, but rising in popularity among consumers. Riders of all skill levels and locations have caught onto this form of battery-powered transportation, powering the future of electric transit.

While most electric bikes look like traditional two-wheelers, they have a built-in electric motor. Depending on the make and model, some motors kick-start with pedaling while others are activated with a throttle.

In some cases, you can catch speeds up to 28 mph to get where you’re going faster and with greater efficiency, all without breaking a sweat.

While the bike does a lot of the work — riders can also turn their commute into a workout or fitness tool simply by using the motor enough to keep it going.

While there’s plenty of reasons people are using e-bikes today, here’s a quick breakdown on what makes them so appealing:

Sweat-Free Travel

Except for avid or enthusiastic bikers, the idea of commuting to work on a traditional two-wheeler has never been that appealing to the average rider.

Cycling to and from work on a regular bike often means you’ll show up sweaty, or have to carry a change of clothes back and forth from the office.

But on e-bikes, cruising and cycling goes hand-in-hand; you can easily haul backpacks, climb steep hills and cut your commute in half without ever breaking a sweat.

An Eco-Friendly Footprint

Major cities are preparing for the bike revolution — and the benefits not only encourage public health, but ecological health, too.

More bike owners also means less cars on the roads, leading to less traffic congestion and air pollution.

Most importantly, since electric bicycles don’t consume gas, they emit significantly less CO2 than a car (or electric car) does.

Greater Savings

Since most states don’t require a special license or insurance to ride an e-bike, the investment and maintenance is nominal compared to owning a car — or even daily public transportation.

RIDEL e-bikes range from $999 to $1699, a lower price point to high-end road bikes, without sacrificing on sleek design or high-quality parts.

Bike lovers might end up investing more to buy add-on parts and features, but unlike cars, they’ll avoid regular parking fees, tickets or bridge tolls.

A Replacement to Driving

The fear of public transportation in a post-pandemic world is driving people to adopt new modes of transportation.

E-bikes offer a substitute for subways, buses or even cars — while still offering similar benefits, like carrying heavy cargo to your destination.

And most often, people who commute by car go short distances on each ride: to the grocery store, to work, to a restaurant. All of these short-distance trips and/or errands can be easily covered by electric bike, and a lot more fun, too.

  1. Noel Barrios

    Nice bike for the price – arrived fast (2 days) with easy assembly.  I’ve put 125 miles on the bike and typically ride about 15 miles on flat terrain at 20mph. I’ve taken it for a 30 mile ride without any problems. Charging the battery for 2.5 hours, the battery always still has power at the end of the ride. I’d recommend this product!

    Absolutely great bike. Get it now!

  1. John Vella

    The package arrived fast (2 days) and is a relatively easy assembly (comes with instructions). The bike is built with quality parts and is very fun to ride! As a mountain biker, I’ve taken it on some pretty steep and rugged terrain and was impressed at how smooth the ride was. I’ve taken up to 30-mile rides without worrying about the battery power. Overall, great product.

  1. Dan Delora

    So far great solid ride! It’s definitely tough and rugged for pretty much any type of terrain due to the thick tires and 750W engine. I use it to commute to work over a bridge that I can practically fly over.

  2. Alvaro D

    The bike is totally weatherproof – you can ride it in the rain, snow, etc. It definitely makes for a very fast ride that’s effortless if you don’t want to sweat on your commute or taking it over mountain terrain. The bike is on the heavier side mostly because you can carry up to 300 lb or ride with two people. I charge it once or twice a week without any trouble.

2 reviews for EKO

  1. Sam Ulmer

    I’m a longtime rider and wanted a little assist, and found it with the EKO. I wasn’t expecting much given the price point vs other e-bikes, but I have been pleasantly surprised — the bike has high-quality components, is very fast, reliable, fun, and safe. Also super lightweight. In general, I’d say this is a great bike for city riders who are looking for a reliable way to commute with some power.

  2. Jeremy Lynn

    I’ve been using this electric bike to commute for the past month. This bike is good for easy riding in cities – adjustable height for the seat/handlebars to ride in a comfortable position for a long period of time. It’s quite lightweight so can be picked up easily + good battery capacity. Highly recommend buying.

3 reviews for CRUZER

  1. Rody

    Cruzer is absolutely the perfect model for living in the city.
    I completely stopped relying on public transport since the purchase of my Cruzer bike.
    5 stars and a thumb up!

  2. Elena

    The bike arrived on time and the assembly was easy and straightforward. I live near to the beach and I couldn’t be happier with this purchase! This was my first time using a pedal-assist bike and I feel comfortable / in control riding up to 20mph. I’d recommend this bike for riders in urban settings/ bike paths as its good quality for the price.

  3. Robert

    I bought this bike for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it. It’s a super smooth ride and still quite feminine while having all the power of an electric bike. It’s the perfect bike for riding around the neighborhood or to the store…it has a rack on the back to store a bag or backpack if you are riding for a short day trip. Assembly was easy with the instructions RIDEL provides with shipment. Thank you!
