1 – No sweat
A growing number of business now cater for cyclists with showers at their offices, however this is not the case for a lot of smaller offices. Thanks to the electric bicycle assistance you will be able to ride to work at a much lower heart rate, so you will not arrive at the office all hot and sweaty. Think of how much more time you could spend at home with your family if you did not have to go to the gym or worry about showering at work.
2 – Save money
Fuel prices are ever increasing, with petrol averaging at 130p per liter. Not to mention the cost of insurance, road tax, services etc. Own a car in general is incredibly expensive, so consider the amount of money you could be saving if you replaced just half of your car journeys with an electric bike.
Some of you may be thinking "Ah but wait! Do not you have to charge the batteries? Does not that increase my home electricity bill?" Well yes you do have to charge the battery, most will charge overnight and some will charge over 2-3hours. But on average the cost of charging a battery is between 10-15p. Now when you consider that charge a single could last you anything between 30-60 miles that works out at incredible value for money.
3 – No fear
A lot of people object to riding to work because they feel nervous in traffic or riding around town. There are lots of regional companies that can help you improve your cycling skills, and some specific courses for town and city riding. However with the extra power and acceleration you get from an electric bike you may not need those courses. Using your electric bike you could accelerate away from traffic lights leaving the all cars behind you, allowing you to cycle safely on your own.
4 – Stylish / sporty
When eBikes were first introduced into the UK most of them were large, heavy and clumsy looking things. They've come a long way since then. eBikes now come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from dutch touring styles, to folding travel bikes, all the way to sporty carbon fiber models like the Storck Raddar Multiroad. With some of the new ebikes its difficult even see that it's an ebike!
Ebikes also offer a great opportunity to spend time with the family. If you've got young children you may have considered a bicycle trailer. It's possible you were put off by the idea of cycling with the added weight of the trailer and a child in the back, you would be surprised how heavy they can be! With an electric bike you would find this so much easier as the torque in the motor will help the burden. You will not have to worry about steep hills or long distances, Perfect!
