Electric bikes (e-bikes) are becoming more and more popular and once you’ve tried one it’s not hard to see why. An electric bicycle can be a speedy, eco-friendly and cost effective way to get around, whether you’re looking to supercharge the commute, take the weight off tired legs, or tackle tricky uphill stretches with ease. Plus, as electric mountain bikes and electric road bikes become more readily available, it’s not hard to find an e bike that suits your riding style. Our handy buying guide is full of tips and information to help you find the best eBike for your next adventure.
An electric bike can be a great option if you have a long way to cycle. With integrated electric motors to help you out while pedaling, they can provide a less strenuous alternative to traditional road, mountain and hybrid bikes. That means they’re also handy if you frequently ride with rucksacks, baskets or heavy loads, as the electric bike motor can help to bear the load and do some of the hard work for you. If you’re looking to get fit and are unsure whether a pedal assist bike is right for you, then don’t be put off. Although you’ll be assisted by a battery powered motor, e bikes still require pedal power, so riding can still give you a decent workout.
Electric bicycles can also be an effective and affordable alternative to driving, especially when commuting on short or moderate length journeys. E bikes are a much greener choice than petrol power, as with re-chargeable electric batteries they can be plugged in and powered up in just a short amount of time. If you’re riding in the city, that gives the added benefit of no congestion charges! Electric push bikes can be fairly compact too, and if you’re looking for a bike specifically for commuting then a folding electric bike is ideal, packing away easily to make room on public transport or while charging.
