E-bikes are growing in popularity around the world and it’s not difficult to see why. People are increasingly choosing to ride E-bikes because they are fast, efficient and environmentally friendly. However, many people have reservations about E-bikes, which is why this article is going look at three advantages they have over other rival forms of transportation.
1. They don’t require as much physical output as regular bikes
Many people avoid bikes because of the amount of physical exertion you have to use to get anywhere on one. Some people aren’t capable of putting in the required physical effort, others just lack the motivation to do so. The advantage of an E-bike is that you can put in as much or as little physical effort as you like. If you want to peddle the entire 10 kilometres to work then you can; if, on the other hand, you want to let the motor help with the hard the work, then you can do that as well – it’s entirely up to you.
2. E-bikes are legal, unlike other electronic powered transport devices
One of the problems with other forms of electric transportation is that they are, rightly or wrongly, illegal in Australia. For example, it is illegal to ride a Segway or a ‘hover’ board in any public place in most states because they are deemed unsafe to ride on footpaths and too slow to ride on roads. E-bikes, on the other hand, are perfectly legal, assuming they meet maximum wattage requirements, making them a much more preferable option for anyone who actually wants to ride their E-bike anywhere.
3. E-bikes are a practical alternative to a car for your morning commute
For many people, riding a bike to work is impractical because of distance between their home and their place of work. E-bikes overcome this problem because the attached motor means you are capable of travelling much longer distances in much shorter periods of time. This makes E-bikes an excellent option for the environmentally-minded commuter who lives too far away from their workplace to use a regular bike.
