As corny as it may seem, the new year really is a great opportunity to wipe the slate clean and focus on your wants and goals for the future. On this one day of the year, you can look forward and see the year in its entirety, the score is reset to zero, and fate is in your hands! Here at Rad Power Bikes, we believe that 2016 will truly be the year of the ebike, and want to give you a few fun and easy ways you can use electric bikes from Rad Power Bikes to crush your 2016 new year's resolutions!
Drive Less - For many of us, the largest amount of time we spend in the car is driving to work, but did you know that for 84% of the US, that commute is less than 25 miles, and is less than 10 miles for 51%?! Both of which are well within the range of the RadRover electric fat bike and the RadWagon electric cargo bike! Riding to work just two days a week could save you about 220 gallons of gas each year, just think what riding five days a week could save you!
Exercise More - We know what you're probably thinking, "Exercise? On an ebike?" The answer is a big YES! Sure, you can kick back and pin the throttle to 100%, or set the pedal assist to 5 and not break a sweat, but with such a large range of pedal assist levels (PAS), you can still get your heart pumping and get in a great workout. Are you the type that would typically pedal on a high PAS? Try riding with a lower PAS on flat and only go up if you need an extra boost up a hill. Think you'd just use throttle? Try a higher level of PAS to feed your need for speed but keep those legs moving!
Spend More Time Outdoors - Many of us don't have the luxury of being able to spend a lot of the day enjoying the great outdoors, so hopping on a bike is a great way to do so! One of the best things about electric bikes is that though they can play a very important role as a functional form of transportation, they're also just plain fun! Whether you're riding to work, school, the store, or just around the neighborhood for fun, Rad Power Bikes allow you to get out and go further!
These are just a few resolutions that you can cross off with your Rad Power Bike, but the possibilities are almost endless! Take the Rad Power Bikes 2016 car-free pledge by committing to alternative transportation one day a week. Even if it's not on a Rad Power Bike, instead of driving a car, take the bus, ride a bike, or walk. At Rad Power Bikes we'd like to supply you with the tools you need to accomplish your car-free goal, right now you can take $100 off the White RadRover now through January 8th, 2016 with code "Car-Free-16".
This 2016 get out, be rad, and make this your year of the ebike!
