Why Should You Join The Growing eBike Community?

What makes the eBike hobby so enticing? Why is the global eBike market expected to reach $23,831 million by 2025? Is it the increasing costs of fuel? The eco-friendly alternative provided by electric bikes, or is it something else?

Why Should You Join The eBike Community?

  • The Health Benefits Electric pedal assist bikes are different to other styles of electric bikes such as a full power or no pedal bike. Instead of hub motors, they use a pedal assist motor which still requires the cyclist to pedal. This means that electric bikes are a great way for people to get more exercise in their lives and as such, reap the benefits of more exercise. It’s also a great option for people who are in search of a cardio workout in order to lose weight or as a form of low-impact exercise because of an injury or arthritis. Owning an eBike provides you with a fantastic opportunity to get more exercise in your day to day life. If you own a road-legal electric bike, you’ll be able to cycle to work, which on top of enabling you to ride past traffic jams without pushing yourself too much, you’ll also be fitting in exercise in your daily life. Lots of people want to exercise but find themselves too tired and exhausted to exercise after work, however cycling to and from work on an eBike provides you with a great opportunity squeeze in some more fitness. eCycling also has many advantages for the workplace as cycling to work can give you an edge with regards to combating workplace stress. Instead of relying on caffeinated beverages such as coffee to assist in the ‘wake up’, exercising will cause your body to release chemicals into your system such as serotonin, dopamine, and various endorphins. This will boost your mood and help you to combat stress; which could assist you through your daily workplace activities such as helping customers/clients and interacting with co-workers. It’s also important to note that these stress-battling chemicals could also help to improve your job satisfaction, thanks to the improvement in mood and increase in happiness levels.

  • The Cost Advantages Whilst the health benefits of cycling are indeed significant, it’s also important not to forget the impact that cost advantages of eBiking has had on the electric biking community. Whilst at first glance, eBikes costing over a thousand pounds may seem expensive, when compared to the cost of a public transport season pass, the cost of a car, or even just the cost of fuel; electric bikes quickly seem to be one of the more wallet friendly methods of transport. With an electric bike, as long as it meets the conditions and restrictions in order to be classified as road-legal, you can ride the bike without need of a license, you don’t need to register it, and you don’t need to pay vehicle tax. It’s also important to remember that, if you choose an electric mountain bike such as the mountain sport, you could also enjoy the bicycle in your spare time, perhaps using it to cycle to work during the week, and having fun off-road eBike adventures during the weekends.

  • Environmental Concerns If the health and cost advantages weren’t enough of a reason to promote the electric bike hobby, there’s also the reduction in your environmental impact to consider. Personal transport provides people with a significant amount of freedom and convenience. However, this freedom often comes at significant monetary and environmental cost, as personal vehicles such as cars contribute to pollution and climate change. Alternatively you could choose to make your lifestyle more eco-friendly by swapping your commute via car, to a commute via eBike. As the electric bike is powered by electricity, you could choose to charge the bike via a renewable source of electricity such as solar or wind power; an attractive prospect to those who are concerned about their own carbon footprints.
