Electric bikes, or e-Bikes were once items of luxury but with over 250 million ebikes on the road in 2016 they are rapidly becoming the local transportation of choice, transforming cities and towns around the world. While at a higher price point than non-electric bicycles, e-Bikes are considered to be a worthwhile investment saving the average commuter over £300/month. In fact, some e-Bikes cost roughly the equivalent of one year's worth of bus passes. In Holland 1 in every 2 bicycles sold is and electric bike and they have some of the cleanest air and a healthy and happy population. The beauty of electric bikes is that they are simply bicycles BUT you can control your exursion. You are in control, not the hill nor the headwind. When asked why electric bikes are becoming so popular we state four facts:
- Fun - feel like a kid again, even when cycling to work
- Cost - smugness as you pass traffic with more money in your pocket
- Health - 80% of the health benefits of a non ebike - and you'll use it more often
- Environment - your fun will be making the world a better place
Come and join the electric bike revolution!
