What are the benefits of electric bikes?

In our towns, cities and rural areas many people are now enjoying the benefits of Electric Bikes in the UK. It might be hard for you to believe that electric bikes have been around for the last 125 years, with Ogden Bolton Jnr, the American inventor, introducing them in 1895. In the last ten years, the technology caught on, and the electric bike rose in interest and popularity. If you are familiar with bikes and want to gain more knowledge, or you are a little sceptical about electric bikes, then you must know the reasons why electric bikes are worth the investment:

  • Health benefits: With an electric bike, you will get much fitter. A study by the University of Colorado discovered that people using electric bikes while commuting to work showed an enhanced aerobic capacity and good blood sugar control. This is because even if electric bikes are available with onboard motors, they only help you with pedalling and do not give power to your bike directly (like a throttle). Even if you do hit a similar level of intensity as on the regular bike, it's a healthy option instead of utilising cars and other public transport.
  • You can tackle hills with utmost ease: Not all cyclist wants to feel the burn when they board on hill-climbing, specifically if that climb is part of their regular journey. With electric bikes, things become easy as they offer you an option for engaging the motor and obtaining some pedalling assistance while tackling tricky inclines.
  • Environmental benefits: Electric bikes are a better option than a car or public transportation as they do not release emissions. So, when you ride on an electric bike, you make a major contribution to the environment.
  • You will look fresh even after riding long: If you do not want to arrive at your work sweaty as well as exhausted, then it's possible with an electric bike. Our electric bikes have multiple levels of assistance to help you select how hard you want to work on any ride. When you are a commuter or on a casual ride, you can select a high level of assistance and allow the motor to take good care of your effort.

No matter which electric bike you select to buy and ride, they are a great investment and money saver.
