5 Reasons to Own an Ebike
We hear from riders on a daily basis that having an ebike has been life changing. Each person has their own reasons, but here are five of the most common:
5. Go Further, Faster
Having a motor to back you up means that you can pedal longer than ever before. With the ability to go 25+ miles per charge and cruise at a maximum speed of 20 mph, you can power up hills with ease, combat headwinds effortlessly, and put on more miles in a breeze.
4. Overcome Barriers
Injuries, health concerns, and physical limitations are a part of life, but they shouldn't keep us from getting outside and living an active lifestyle. Many people turn to ebikes to regain mobility and improve wellness. Yes, ebikes have a motor, but riders can choose how much power they need, and still enjoy a low
impact yet invigorating ride. People are now exercising, commuting, running errands, and exploring in ways that wouldn't be possible without the assist.
3. Live Green
Having the power and capacity of an ebike, especially a cargo ebike, allows you to drive less and ride more. This not only makes getting around more fun, but it lowers your carbon footprint. Generally, ebikes emit 22 grams of CO2 per kilometer, which is far less than the 270 grams per kilometer cars emit.
You’ll also save green by riding an ebike instead of driving. Ebikes cost about 8 cents per 25 miles of use, while a car can cost $2 over the same distance.
2. Sweat Less
With an ebike, you only have to pedal as hard as you want. The motor assist can be turned down when you want a work out or cranked up to get you around without breaking a sweat. The motor assist provides exciting opportunities. Before long, you will be riding your ebike to meetings, dates, the grocery store, and more because you won't arrive sweaty, out of breath, or red in the face.
1. Have More Fun
With the first pedal stroke on an ebike, you’ll feel the difference and probably smile immediately. The fun factor is key and a main reason why people ride ebikes every day. With an ebike, you'll enjoy the fun and freedom of riding a bike like you did when you were a kid.
