Join the Ebike revolution and find your perfect ride!
Bicycles have always been a passion of mine from a very young age and like many others I have owned BMX’s, Racers, mountain Bikes, Hybrid, Fold ups and the list goes on.
However, up until a few years ago the bike came out less and less due to work, life and family commitments etc by which time I had resigned myself to taking the ‘Rattler’ (train) into Central London each day on my commute for work – I could not bear it ( especially in the summer) not to mention the £3K+ cost per year for a travel card!
So, my curiosity began one very sunny morning on the (mind-numbingly boring) commute into work, staring out of the train window I saw this guy ( trust me he was no athlete) absolutely powering up a fairly steep hill on an E-Bike grinning from ear to ear, not even breaking a sweat! I absolutely had to try one of these things out ASAP!
The more I researched ebikes the benefits just kept shining through, not just from a cost perspective but the environmental impact and health implications they have – yes you can get fit on an electric bike!
I have a fairly ‘Chunky’ physique and I am not very fit, so was intrigued to see how I would feel riding any kind of long distances on these things with some assistance. After testing several models from the local bike shop my concerns washed away very quickly and other than battery range I felt there was no limit on how far I could cycle unlike before on my standard bike I would always find routes with the least hills.
Before purchasing my first E-bike I spent days and weeks researching all kinds of makes, models, everything from battery life to hub and mid-drive motors, reviews and forums, manufacturer websites and so on, but in the end I found the bike that was right for me which to this day still remains my favorite and is used almost daily.
My commute is 15.6 Miles ( each way), the Train used to take me 1hr (on a good day), on my E-bike it takes 1hr 15mins so apart from the obvious financial, environmental and health benefits that I have already highlighted…. e-biking has since become my passion which above everything else…. its just good fun.
A Growing Market
The E-bike market has grown exponentially over the last 12 months when we are now seeing automotive manufacturers such as Jeep, Tesla and even Harley Davidson producing e bikes to offset their losses.
I have also noticed more Cargo E-Bikes being used by local courier firms to reduce their carbon footprint alongside, food delivery companies who are also now using ebikes as a more cost effective option to reduce overheads & costs .
Whatever shape our world looks like when we come out the other side of COVID-19, I can guarantee there will be more E-bikes out there which is a good thing for our planet and even better for our general well being.
