To get stuck in traffic, no parking space for an infinite time: bad memories. The electric bike is more practical and faster than a car. It is ideal for short city journeys and can be parked anywhere.
Not yet out of the car?
An electric bicycle does not emit polluting exhaust fumes harmful to the environment, it does not disturb as it is extremely silent, and has an irrelevant electric cost per kilometer.
What is more sustainable
An e-bike has an electricity consumption equal to about 1 dollar per 1,000 km. It does not require insurance costs or road tax. Moreover, it exploits the bike paths and has access to the limited traffic zones.
Have you already calculated how much savings?
With the electric bike you can choose how much effort you want to exert and when you want to do it - to get to the office effortlessly and dry, for example. Or to take a nice ride and activate all your muscles, just by limiting the electric assistance.
Do yourself some good. What are you waiting for?
Did you know that you can use an electric bike to get fit?
An electric bike allows you to exercise without putting excessive strain on your joints and muscles, so that you can safely build your strength and fitness, even if you have not exercised for many years, or have health barriers and challenges. This post describes three different ways in which you can use an ebike to get fitter and healthier.
You Can Get as Much or as Little Exercise as You Like on an Ebike.
The beauty of electric bikes is that you can get as little or as much exercise as you like on an ebike. It has been proven that it is possible to get effective exercise on an ebike, if you use it in pedal assist mode – and of course, also if you use it without assistance. You can choose, for example, to only use assistance on uphills. You can also choose to use a low level of electrical assistance, so that you still have to work hard to keep the bike going. Bear in mind that ebikes are heavy – anything between 35 and 80 pounds. Because ebikes are heavy, your entire body, and especially your core, will have to work to ride it. Your core muscles will engage as you balance it and maneuver it around corners. Also as you wheel it in and out of your garage or elevator! Similarly, your joints and bones will be strengthened by what is essentially weight-bearing exercise.
Riding an electric bike will improve your cardiovascular fitness, improving the efficiency of your heart, your lungs, and your blood vessels, while improving your blood pressure. Like all exercise, it will also improve many other aspects of your health, including your blood sugar processing, and resistance to cancer. This post sums up several research studies, which all showed that people get effective exercise on an ebike, and experienced improvements in both fitness and health.
In fact, researchers were often surprised at how much exercise people got on ebikes, as compared to regular bikes. Some started off skeptical, and admitted to being surprised by their research findings. In short, riding an electric bike brings with it all the many benefits of exercise, which has been described by researchers as a miracle cure for most of the ailments that eventually kill us (and can make our lives not worth living before that).
