What you need to know about E-bikes
E-bikes are an environmentally friendly way to get around. Unlike cars and motorbikes, you don’t need to fill them up with petrol or diesel. They also don’t emit gasses that contribute to global warming. Check out a great read on Rad Power Bikes here…
THEY MAKE LIFE THAT LITTLE BIT EASIER
You can tackle different routes on an e-bike. If you’ve been avoiding a particular trail because there’s a steep hill or it’s a bit too long, an e-bike can help you get to the top with no extra effort.
They’re also much more inclusive because elderly people or less fit people will be able to ride them without the stress of thinking they won’t be able to get back. They’re a great mode of transport on family holidays so that everyone can get involved.
IT’S JUST LIKE RIDING A BIKE
Really! If you can ride a standard bike you can ride an e-bike. There’s no need for any extra experience or gear. Just hop on and head to wherever you’re going!
YOU WON’T ACTUALLY GO MUCH FASTER
By law, e-bikes can’t go any faster than 15.5 mph. The speed isn’t really what makes the difference between a standard bike and an e-bike. It’s the fact that you can always be cycling at 15.5 mph if you want to – even uphill, in windy weather conditions or when your legs are tired.
