We’re living in the future! In all aspects, technology has improved our lives, whether that be through breakthrough medicines, renewable energy or new sporting ideas to keep us active (and living) longer… one of these changes is an electric bike. You may have already seen one of this zipping through your streets. The question is, is it worth all the hype, especially for our fellow cyclists?

Nicknamed ‘E-bike’ (also called power bike or booster bike), it might be the biggest adoption of green transportation of the decade. ‘cycling is already green’ you may say, but it’s more than that. Think about them in place of small petrol scooters rather than normal bicycles. E-bikes use rechargeable batteries that can travel up to 25 to 45 km/h, much faster than most people would cycle, getting you to your destination quicker and in better shape. In a nutshell, they offer low cost, energy-efficient, and emission-free transportation which also has physical and health benefits.

E-bikes have what they call battery-powered “pedal assist.” Technically, this is a machine integrated within the bike to give your pedalling a boost. This can reduce stress and impact on your knees and thighs. Say goodbye to sweaty rides.

New kids bikes have entered the market as well, giving kids a safe way to get around town. Kids often get tired faster on regular bikes, and E-bikes are the perfect solution – helping kids keep up with mum and dad!

There are E-bikes that have specific boosting technology that can assist you to conquer hills and inclines, so you don’t have to worry about any challenging terrain. People of all ages and health can ride flawlessly and for much longer with an E-bike. Longer rides mean more views and more possibilities for lunch stops

The technology gives you the extra oomph you need to cover miles of distance with little effort. You can also still take advantage of the multi-purpose cycle lane and paths that are traffic free, brilliant if you’re living in a city to slash your commute time.  These are getting more and more popular in cities as governments and councils urge people to give up their car.
