Ride For Longer With An Electric Bike

Cycling is a very appealing hobby for many, however not everyone has the fitness capabilities to cycle for long periods of time without arriving at their destination feeling exhausted.

If you’d like to reach new goals and take your cycling to the next level, consider upgrading to an electric bike, the pedal assist battery will help you as you ride, allowing you to cycle both faster and for longer.

Take On New Exciting Challenges

An electric bicycle could be your ticket to new and exciting challenges. For example, if you’ve always wanted to go on a cycling holiday but you’re concerned about the physical aspect of cycling, a pedlec electric bicycle might provide you with the assistance you need to turn your dreams into reality.

Whilst an exciting challenge differs from person to person, the pedlec bike is equipped with the technology to help you achieve your own goal. If your goal is to get more exercise and you find cycling too exhaustive, the pedal assist motor could be the ideal entry point into the cycling hobby.

Unlike motorbikes, full-power, or no-pedal bikes, the pedlec bicycle does not have a hub motor. Instead there is a motor located near the rear wheel where it provides the cyclist with assistance as they pedal. Some electric bikes have different levels of assistance so they can decide how much help they require whilst cycling.

If you choose to swap to an eBike, you might find that distances and routes you previously thought out of your capabilities quickly approach your capabilities. The electric motor will help hills feel flatter, and give you a helping hand as the miles fly by. Tackle Your Commute With Ease

The idea of cycling to work is appealing to many. There are fitness benefits, cost advantages, and more. However, the disadvantage for many is that when they arrive at work, they’ll often feel exhausted and possibly be sweaty, which can be very uncomfortable if your place of work doesn’t have shower facilities.

Cycling to work is also a very good way to add more exercise into your lifestyle. As a pedlec eBike still requires you to pedal, it’s still a great source of exercise. Also, if you’re trying to lose weight, recovering from an injury, or if you suffer from arthritis, electric bicycles provide a great low-impact cardio workout.

Choosing to commute via eBike also has numerous other advantages. For example, it can provide you with an edge when combating workplace stress. When you exercise, your body will release chemicals into your system such as serotonin, dopamine, and various endorphins. This will provide your body with a mood boost, helping you to fight the affects of workplace stress, assisting you with your daily workplace activities such as helping customers/clients and interacting with co-workers.
