1. DO I JOIN IN THE GYM OR DO I GO FOR A RUN? USE AN E-BIKE!
We all know that physical exercise is good for body and mind. A good e-bike enables daily trips without the typical “suffering” or fatigue for those who are not so fit but it still provides a gentle aerobic workout which can improve overall health.
For example, if we consider using an e-bike for just 20 minutes a day, we reach a weekly moving time of over two hours, which will not have taken time away from other daily activities.
2. TIME IS MONEY
Using an e-bike allows you to travel longer distances in a short time and with less stress. In traffic, e-bikes are agile, manage to keep up with faster moving vehicles, allowing you to choose faster alternative routes (such as ZTL areas or otherwise unthinkable climbs) and once you arrive at your destination, they don’t require you to search for a parking space. Let’s not forget that you don’t need a license or insurance to use an e-bike and you avoid the costs of public transport or petrol. And this is certainly excellent news for your expenditure.
3. ZERO IMPACT: LET’S TAKE CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT
If we choose an e-bike instead of a motor vehicle, we actively contribute to the protection of our planet and environmental sustainability. By using a zero-emission form of transport, we spread and promote an important value linked to our environment: I do what I want, without polluting. Not to mention the advantages deriving from a clear reduction in the use of public space which in the long run could contribute to increasing green spaces which would normally be required for car parks.
4. FROM MORNING TO EVENING: PERFECT FOR ANY OCCASION
How many times have we thought about taking a bicycle to go to the office, to dinner or to the cinema but then we got stuck at the thought of some embarrassing post-ride situation? But with e-bike, everything changes. Making less effort also means not having to give up anything, not having to gear up with a change of clothes, wasting time and being able to choose your favorite outfit without worries. Furthermore, let’s not forget that with the help of a small electric motor it becomes easier to carry additional weight, such as groceries.
Today the market offers e-bike models with a refined design, for all tastes and for all budgets.
5. MAKING A CIRCLE
Many studies have associated a greater motivation to get on two wheels once you have bought an e-bike (even with experienced cyclists) even just for a quick errand or a ride through the neighbourhood. And coincidentally, those who start using an e-bike for daily commutes often choose two wheels for their holidays or a trip out of town. Thanks to wider comfortable tires, room for luggage and an assisted motor, it’s not so unthinkable to load up the bike and head out for a truly zero impact adventure.
So here are our five reasons to use an e-bike, for all types of cyclists from a beginner up to an expert.
