5 Great Benefits to E-Bikes
In all aspects, technology has improved and changed our lives. A recent change in technology has now stretched to cycling- the electric bike. You may have already seen these around your neighbourhood or heard about it from your friend. You may be wondering if getting one for yourself would be worth it. We have done the research for you, and found 5 great benefits of e-bikes.
Boost Your Motivation
Studies have shown that cyclists with e-bikes are far more likely to ride their bike. E-bike cyclists ride 2-3 times more than those with regular bikes. There could be many reasons for this, but the most obvious is because of the ease and simplicity of riding an e-bike. Do you ever wake up in the morning and look at your cycle. Thinking: “I should ride and enjoy the track to work, but just don’t have the effort right now”. That is a thing of the past thanks to a commuter e-bike. You don’t have to spend your morning driving to work, wasting half the time sitting in traffic if you don’t wish to cycle. Instead with a commuter e-bike you can kick in your pedal assist. Still taking in the fresh air, but cruise past the unwanted traffic jams effort-free.
Cut Back on Expenses
Not only do e-bikes get you out in the fresh air, sunlight and burning some calories – you could also save money. If you have an e-bike of your own you might agree that it has become your favourite way to get around (your car has definitely taken the back seat). Cut back on what you spend on fuel, the time spent in traffic and the on-going costs associated with cars. There might be a higher-than-average cost compared to traditional bicycles, but that’s not even a sure thing. In the end, an electric bike can save you tons of money. E-bikes are also quite inexpensive to maintain, especially compared to automobiles and motorcycles.
If thoughts of climate change have you worried, consider this. In comparison to a car, motorbike or a moped, an e-bike provides a clean, green and no-petrol alternative to transport. Electric bikes are a hybrid between a motor vehicle and a regular bike, you could have a powerful mode of transport without emissions harmful to the earth. E-bikes consume fuel at an average rate of 100-150 watts of electrical energy whereas a car is about 15,000. Transportation is evolving with the times, technology has taken the bike as we know it and flipped it to appeal to more. Transportation is working towards sustainability with the development of the electric bike.
