Why use an E-Bike?

Electric bikes are currently the fastest growing form of alternative transport and not only are they great for exploring a new destination they are also great for your health! In the UK 6% of Cyclists currently own an E-Bike, with a further 14% intent on buying one in the next 12 months as the trend keeps growing. E-Bikes have so many benefits including:

  • Making cycling a fun activity for a wide range of people
  • Providing daily moderate-intensity aerobic exercise 
  • Helping someone to return to cycling after an injury
  • Promoting a cleaner and healthier lifestyle 

So, how do they work?

E-bikes have a small motor located on the frame which is powered by a battery and although you do still need to pedal, the motor kicks in to provide as much or as little assistance as you require. Electric Bikes can be geared or single speed, much like conventional bikes, to allow an easy ride. A rechargeable battery allows easy opportunity to recharge whenever you feel possible.
