Why Choose An Electric Bike

Words by The Electric Bike Shop on 28/01/2020 12:05:00

An electric bike is guaranteed to put a smile on your face - every ride. Whilst some just like the fun factor. Electric bikes really do have a lot to offer

Conquer Hills

Living in a hilly city like Bristol they can certainly offer lots of assistance (imagine riding up Bridge Valley Road with minimal effort and whizzing up Park Street!) With the gravity-defying capabilities of an electric bike, hills will disappear beneath you. The power and can also make climbing mountain bike trails much more enjoyable!

Go Further

But even if your journey doesn’t involve any inclines imagine the freedom of being able to go so much further. Our electric bikes offer a range of between 50 and 80 miles on a single charge. Enjoy cycling more, exploring new destinations, travel far longer distances.

Save Time And Money

With the benefit of an electric bike you will also be able to choose two wheels over four, saving time searching for somewhere to park plus saving money. You can still take advantage of the multi-purpose cycle lane and paths that are traffic free. There is also no tax, MOT, or expensive petrol or diesel to pay for and you won’t be sitting in traffic or waiting for public transport.

A full charge on an average electric bike costs under 10p giving you the options to reduce your reliance on motorised transport.

Clean Green Energy

Do your bit to help the environment. Compared to a car, moped or motorcycle, an electric bike provides a clean, green, no-petrol transportation alternative plus they emit no noise pollution.

Electric bikes typically consume fuel at an average rate of 100 to 150 watts of electrical energy compared to 15,000 or so for a car.

Health Benefits

Riding an E-Bike is just as good as regular bikes at improving fitness. Although cycling with an E-Bike is pedal assisted, it's still an exercise after all and therefore good for your health, both mentally and physically.

If you’re recovering from an injury, an electric bike can be a great rehabilitation tool, reducing strain on muscles and joints.

No Red Tape

Unlike other forms of motorized transportation, electric bikes don't require registration, licence plates, or insurance. You don’t need to take a test and or have any previous experience. All you need to be is over 15 years old - there certainly isn’t a maximum age we’ve customers in their 80’s and 90’s.

Easy To Move

Although we can’t deny an E-Bike does weigh more than a traditional bicycle, but you will have no problem moving it when not in the saddle. Every model we stock has a Walk Assist mode to power you forward (up to 4 mph). The Walk Assist allows you to manoeuvre and store it with it ease for example from a bicycle rack to the road or even up the steps to your front door!

E- Bikes Aren’t As Heavy As You Think!

Although E-bikes carry a little extra weight because of the motor and battery, it’s barely noticeable. At The Electric Bike Shop, all our bikes use lithium ion batteries which are incredibly light and efficient. You’ll find most of our E-Bikes have a sleek design and the motors and batteries are super discreet.
