4 Reasons to get an Electric Bike

If you have not yet experienced what it is like to ride an electric bike, let me tell you that you are in for a treat! Ebikes have all of the best features of a regular bicycle combined with scooter and are really a lot of fun to ride around town.  There are so many great benefits to owning a Ebike, but here are the ones that you should take into account if you are considering investing in an Ebike of your very own:

  1. Get to work sweat free. Did you know that most car trips that people take, including commuting to work are under 5 miles? When you live that close to work, it is a great opportunity to ride your bike into work, but there can be drawbacks to this if you are using a regular bike. Especially when you are first starting out commuting and are a little out of shape, you will most likely show up to work soaked in sweat every morning. Some people get around this by bringing a change of clothes, but that is not always practical and it is also just a pain. If you commute using an electric bike instead, then you have the option to stop pedaling when you start to feel exerted. Or in my case, I stop pedaling when I get within a mile of work so that I have time to cool down before I have to walk into work. This way you can avoid having to pack in extra clothing and get into work early enough to have time to change.
  2. Avoid the traffic. Do you ever jealously watch the morning cyclist zoom past all of the traffic in the morning while you sit at a red light? Well now you can be part of that team! With an Ebike, you do not have to be in peak physical shape to ride into work and to beat all of the traffic.
  3. Get the best parking spot. Since an Ebike is classified the same as a regular bike, it allows you to have more flexibility when it comes to parking as navigation. You can legally ride on sidewalks and bike lands and park it and lock it up anywhere that you would a normal bike. Skip trolling down the crowded parking garages and just go straight to the bike racks at the front of the building!
  4. Better than coffee. When your heart rate increases and you exercise, endorphins and adrenaline is released into your body. Endorphins give you a feeling of euphoria and adrenaline wakes you up. So you can skip your morning cup of Joe and let your body wake itself up in the morning. The natural stimulants that you get from a little morning commute will have you arriving to work awake and in a great mood, what a great way to start the day!
