  • With the recent Paris Agreement on global warming, now is the time to consider an e-bike and do you bit to help lower carbon emissions. Car journeys to work account for about 65% of travel, and nearly 25% of commuters live within 5 miles of their place of work. E-bikes are classed as Zero Emissions Vehicles.   A recent study in America came to the following conclusions when comparing e-bikes with other forms of transport, they are:

    • 18 times more energy efficient than an SUV/ 4x4
    • 13 times more energy efficient than a saloon car
    • 6 times more energy efficient than rail
    • About equal impact to the environment as a conventional bicycle

    So not only will you be getting fitter, but you will be helping the environment.  Now is the time to Go Electric.

  • There is no doubt that riding an electric bike is good exercise, in fact you will almost certainly use it more than a regular bike. When riding, an electric bike is so exhilarating that it’s easy to forget you are exercising, a bit like playing sports. You can plan trips that you may never have considered before, or if you did you would have gone by car or public transport.  A fifty mile trip can become a breeze, and all that fresh air, you really will feel invigorated. Whatever your age, you will reap the health benefits of an electric bike.

  • I myself had a hip replacement three years ago that actually got my interest in electric bikes as I couldnt exercise. I was on an ebike within days of my operation and next year Brighton university will be carrying out a suvey to test the actual health benifits, both physical and metal.
