Cycling up hills can be hard – very hard! With an e-bike, it doesn’t have to be. E-bikes provide assistance up to 15.5mph making every trip a breeze. Plus, most e-bikes have different levels of assistance and you can turn the assistance level up whenever you need it the most.

Depending on various factors, most e-bikes have a maximum range of between 40-100 miles. For most people, that would mean you could commute to and from work for a full week, on only one charge!
