Electric bikes (e-bikes) have revolutionized the way people commute in almost all major urban cities worldwide, but they can do more than transport you from your home to your workplace and back.
People have been using e-bikes for cruising on sandy beaches, trekking on hills, and even exploring remote areas.
There are so many different types of e-bikes that you can easily find one for any use case. But that’s not the only reason they are your perfect travel partner.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss why electric bikes make for your perfect travel buddy. So, let’s get started.
Reasons To Own an E-Bike
This cannot be stated often enough. Mother Earth is dying… and we are dying with it.
The only way to prevent ongoing climate change and stop this catastrophe is to reduce carbon emissions. And do you know what helps reduce these emissions? Yes, you’ve got it right. E-bikes.
The “E” in e-bikes stands for electric. Unlike traditional vehicles, e-bikes don’t rely on gas or other fossil fuels to power your ride and, therefore, do not produce any carbon emissions.
It means when you use an electric bike for traveling, you’re helping to conserve the environment, the climate, and the planet.
Yes, the electricity used to charge them also has an environmental cost, but that’s far less than gas alternatives.
Contribute to a Healthy Lifestyle
Electric bikes can be operated in either of the following two ways. First, you can use them like regular bicycles without electric/motor assistance.
Or, you can use them in a pedal-assist mode that adds motor power or “electric assistance” to your leg power, making your ride more manageable and fun.
Some electric bikes are also designed to work with a throttle (but that’s a different story, as most countries, including those in Europe and Australia, don’t permit such e-bikes).
So, when you use e-bikes – whether you use them like a regular bicycle or with pedal assist – you get a workout good enough to contribute positively to your health (provided that you use them often).
Research has shown that cycling can lower the chances of cardiovascular disorders, reduce stress levels, and even help you lose weight. It means that e-bikes are possibly the healthiest mode of travel after cycling.
