E-Bikes are. getting more and more recognition across the world for their both fun and utilitarian uses. People have been enjoying them for relaxing rides on trails through nature and riding them for their morning commutes to work. But there are so many benefits to owning and riding an E-Bike, that Apple News has assembled 14 benefits of riding an electric bike that we’d like to share below:
#1. An E-Bike will improve your fitness
Taking care of your health is important and can be a lot of fun! But what sounds better than exploring the great outdoors on a biking trail or through town? E-Bikes are the perfect way to ride and get outside for some exercise and with the choices to make the ride harder or easier giving you the tailored workout you might be looking for.
#2. An E-Bike will help you keep up with your mates
When riding with friends, it can be hard to keep together on the path, but with the power of the motor on your E-Bike, a couple quick switches will make keeping pace with your friends an easy task.
#3. E-BIkes makes it easier to get up hills
Hills are generally the bicyclist’s worst enemy, but E-Bikes are designed to make those uphill climbs much easier with adaptive technology and a powerful motor to help get the wheels turning without putting it all on your muscles to do the work.
#4. Faster riding
It should go without saying that a powerful electric motor built into your E-Bike can help you go much faster that what your rotating legs can do alone. These motors make the trips more fun and useful if traveling to your workplace or a destination of your choice.
#5. An E-Bike will help you explore new places
E-Bikes have the ability to go longer and harder than the average bicyclist can ride. This extra boost to your endurance gives you the opportunity to travel to new places and experience new things without the worry of getting tired and being far from your departure point.
#6. Quick start
That first pedal push is always the hardest. But with a Quick Start functionality in your E-Bike, you can get started on the ride faster, building up your speed with relative ease.
#7. Less sweat
As mentioned earlier, riding your E-Bike is a great way to exercise, but it goes without saying that an added electric motor on your bike means you’ll not have to work as hard to ride and enjoy your bike. So forget about showing up to work or the store covered in sweat from a hard ride, E-Bikes make it practical to journey.
#8. Less muscle strain
As mentioned above, with less sweat and hard rides, means your muscles will have much less strain and pain attached to them after a good long ride. Nobody wants to be sore all day after a ride, E-Bikes can make that happen!
#9. Less stress on the heart
Cardio is a great health advantage to riding your bike. But with less stress on your muscles, that includes your heart. This makes E-Bikes a great choice for those who want the cardio workout with straining their hearts.
#10. Better mental health
Being outside and riding your E-Bike has a natural health benefit, but the hidden benefit is the relaxing and calming atmosphere and enjoyment of the great outdoors that is a boon to your mental health and gives you relaxation, a workout, and peaceful times away from stress and responsibilities. The best kind of R&R.
#11. An ebike is cheaper (and faster) than a car or other transport
Many have turned to use E-Bikes to travel to the grocery store, workplace, or nearby parks. And by using their E-Bikes, they didn’t use gas or need a big vehicle to get to those places. These E-Bikes are generally much cheaper than an average automobile and with no fuel cost, it’s remains that way.
#12. Easy to store
Another thing E-Bikes have over a car to get you around town, is that they are very easy to store and don’t take up much space. You can store them when not using in your garage, entryway, or even in your living room! They are compact and easy to get wherever you want them to be!
#13. Ebikes can be tax efficient
Tax credits for electric vehicles are a recent addition with the rise of government recognition of the ecological benefits of EVs. So your E-Bike purchase may entitle you to some tax credits and make the not-so-fun task of paying taxes, that much easier!
#14. Ebikes are quiet
One question many people would have about E-Bikes is that if they have electric motors built in, does that mean they are loud? No trip out on a bike path sounds relaxing if you are listening to a loud motor the whole way! But we’re here to tell you that E-Bike motors are the quietest around and are designed to enhance your relaxing trips, not hinder them.
