Cost-Effective Commuting:

Yes, the cost of an E bike is more expensive than others but when you add up tax, insurance, petrol, parking and maintenance related to cars it’s incomparable.

Health And Fitness:

There’s a huge misconception that E bikes are purely for lazy commuting. According to studies pedal assisted E bikes are just as good as regular bikes at improving fitness. Cardiovascular fitness improves lung and heart health as well as overall circulation, benefiting you both mentally and physically.

Convenience and Time Saving:

In some instances commuting on an E bike can be quicker than driving and it avoids traffic congestion, especially in urban areas. They also able you to navigate through traffic with ease and you can find parking almost anywhere for free.

The Knock-on Effect:

If just 50 people per day chose to ride instead of drive, there will be less delays in traffic and public transportation, carbon emissions would be less and those 50 people would feel better, fitter and in effect be happier. Just 30 minutes of exercise a day can boost brain function and performance, reduce stress, improves health, gives you energy and helps fight off diseases. In a society where adults are more physically inactive than ever before the change starts with you, and Electric Bikes.
