Electric bikes are eco-friendly
Many major cities around the world are now subject to congestion charges and clean air levies. These require gas and diesel-powered vehicle users to pay a charge each time they enter the central areas of the city. London is a perfect example, and many cities have begun to follow suit.
The great news is that electronic bikes are carbon neutral. They do not release any tailpipe emissions and represent a fantastic solution for those who want to reduce their carbon footprint. If you happen to live in a city which implements charges to combat climate change, you’ll also be able to save money by avoiding these charges!
In addition to saving on congestion charges, you’ll also save money that would have otherwise been spent filling your car up with fuel. Electric bikes are a lot more affordable than most people think, and once the initial purchase has been made, you can start working out how much money you’re saving on fuel. After a period of weeks, you’ll find that your e-bike has practically paid for itself in terms of what you’ve saved.
Electric bikes are ideal for commuters
Most major towns and cities around the world have issues with traffic congestion. To avoid this, you could always use an electric bike or tricycle e-bike. These bikes allow you to take advantage of cycle networks (which are on the increase) and you can even choose quieter roads away from the hustle and bustle of the traffic. After switching to an e-bike, many people find that cycling to work is much quicker than driving and can help them shave minutes off their commute which can be better spent relaxing or doing something else.
To top it all off, you’ll actually feel better, too. Commuting to work on an electric bike is proven to help with cardiovascular health and could also help you feel more energized and less stressed throughout the course of the day.
Electric bikes provide a workout at your level
Owning an electric bike isn’t “cheating” when it comes to exercise. While the electric motor can take the strain out of cycling - particularly during steep inclines - the assistance provided as you ride can be set to your own level. There are multiple levels of assistance available, and you will only receive assistance from the motor if you are actively pedaling or using the throttle. Once you gain a bit of confidence, you might even want to consider lowering the assistance level to provide you with a more intense workout.
Some people worry that their electric bike won’t offer a good range. However, most e-bikes can assist for at least 40 miles, which is more than enough for the majority of commuters and hobbyists.
