About Electric bikes
Electric Bikes, (or e-bikes as they are commonly called) provide a genuine urban transport alternative.
An electric bike utilises a battery powered electric motor to assist the rider when required, like when accelerating, climbing hills or pedalling into head winds. Riding an electric bike makes you feel young again!
As with a regular bicycle, they are completely legal to ride without a drivers' licence (or any other licence for that matter), even on bike paths. And, don't forget the added benefit of free parking!
Contrary to popular belief, riding an electric bike does require some effort to cycle - it is a great, low impact alternative to riding a normal bike. Being low impact means you can ride the bike without placing the strain on your body that a normal bike can. Far from being a 'lazy' choice - they are a great option for those who want to enjoy exercise and keep moving - without the pain or exhaustion some of us suffer when riding a regular bike. They are also a fabulous alternative to public transport commuting - you can ride to work and still arrive fresh (and without the lycra!).
