Mens and Womens Commuter Bikes

We are possibly at the start of the greatest revolution in transport since Henry Ford's first production line started churning out vehicles back in 1913. Many industry experts believe we have already passed the tipping point, and electric vehicle (EVs) sales will rapidly overtake petrol and diesel cars.

So it's of little wonder that the humble pushbike is now also electrified. However, the electric bike is not a new invention; back in 1993, Yamaha brought the first electrically power-assisted (PAS) bike to market. Since then, electric bikes, or e-bikes, have risen in popularity, with millions sold each year. Many see electric bikes as an environmentally friendly trend providing a viable alternative to vehicle transportation and increasing fuel costs, and part of the solution to climate change.

Electric bikes are rising in popularity for lots of reasons. Electric bikes get people out of their vehicles and exercising, leading to a healthier lifestyle. But, contrary to popular opinion, ebikes don't do all the work, though they do help as you pedal. In addition, E-Bikes go faster than traditional bikes with less effort. Riding an electric bike is like a stroll rather than a sprint, meaning no more sweaty commutes, eliminating the need to shower and change at work, and you won't have to deal with traffic jams or worry about finding a parking space.
