The first time I heard about an electric bike, I’m sure I rolled my eyes. Why would someone need an electric bike?
Who Uses Electric Bikes?
Nearly everyone could benefit from an electric bike including:
- anyone trying to reduce their carbon footprint
- the elderly
- those with physical limitations
- those living in hilly areas
- someone trying to keep up with more skilled riders
- those looking to add a bit of fun to their rides
Electric bikes get people who may not otherwise ride a bicycle, outdoors, active and biking.
For others, it motivates them to go further, cycle longer, and ride harder.
Biking reduces stress, gets your heart pumping, burns calories and adds muscle. With an electric bike, if you don’t pedal, you don’t move.
In the United States, many think of biking as a weekend past time or something children do. In Europe, it’s a way of life. In Denmark, only slightly more than half of the population owns a car, while 90 percent own a bike. And the number one selling electric vehicle in the world just happens to be the e-bike.
When you choose to bike rather than utilizing other transportation options, not only do you eliminate car emissions, you also reduce damage to roadways and eliminate the need for an expensive separate infrastructure like those for cars and trains.
