The Rise In eBike Popularity

Electric bikes are quickly becoming a common site on roads and cycle paths, and with electric bike finance options such as our 12 month financing scheme with no penalties for early repayment, you can join the eBike community at an affordable price.

Why Are eBikes Becoming More Popular?

  1. The Fitness Benefits Electric bikes use an electric motor in a pedal assist manner. This makes it different to a full-power or no-pedal bike. Instead of using a hub motor, there is a motor located near the rear wheel where it provides the rider with assistance as they pedal. This means that whilst the bike does provide assistance, it still requires the cyclist to pedal, thus making it a good form of exercise.

Whilst some might argue that the assistance provided by the motor makes electric cycling less beneficial to analogue or acoustic cycling, it’s also argued that it is more advantageous for some as the assistance will allow you to cycle for further and longer, making exercise less tiring and thus increasing the likelihood you’ll cycle more frequently; increasing the amount of exercise in your day-to-day life. Additionally, it’s also worthwhile considering that by riding an eBike, you might find that distances and routes which 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.

  1. A Great Way To Commute To Work Some electric bikes have different levels of assistance so the cyclist can decide how much help they require whilst cycling. For example, it can be on a low setting for flat terrain; however whilst cycling uphill you could increase the power and receive more assistance from the motor. Other electric bicycles have throttles which can provide starting assistance, this gives you a little boost when you start cycling, making them much better than acoustic bicycles for areas without cycle lanes. Commuting via eBike has numerous advantages in addition to allowing you to cycle to work without feeling too exhausted when you arrive at the start of the day. There are also health advantages to cycling to work on an electric bike. Did you know cycling to work can provide you with an edge to help you combat 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.

  2. Helps The Less Mobile To Cycle An electric bike is a great choice for people who are recovering from injuries or those who suffer from arthritis. Thanks to the pedal assistance, eBiking is a form of low-impact exercise which allows people to stay active despite their injuries. The support from electric bikes can be very important to parents who are less mobile but want to cycle with their children. A road legal electric bike can be used anywhere a bicycle is allowed, so they can enjoy cycling on the road and on off-road cycle paths with their children, thanks to the assistance provided by the pedlec bicycle. So as long as the bike doesn’t provide pedal assistance above 25km/h (15.5 mph) and isn’t powered by a battery exceeding 250 watts, you can join in family bike rides, despite injuries.

A Diverse Range Of Electric Bikes To Choose From

The Electric Bike World online store has a wide range of electric bikes to choose from including bikes for distance such as the Lifecycle Strada with an effortless range of over 80 miles, or eBikes for beginners such as the Axcess Exmoor which is equipped with a the battery charger that turns itself off when the battery is full, preventing overcharging.

However, we understand that not everyone is in the financial situation to be able to purchase an electric bike in full, and not everyone is employed by an employer who offers a cycle to work scheme. That’s why we offer the ability to spread out the cost of your new eBike over 12, 24, or 36 months with our electric bike finance. All it requires is a simple form and we can arrange a simple 0% or very low interest finance option for you.
