What is an E-Bike?


Electric bikes are great because they remove barriers to riding. E-bikes are fun, they are always fun, and most importantly—they are fun for everyone. These rides are all about possibility. Only e-bikes offer the flexibility get in a workout, ride with a faster friend, haul a heavy load, or simply cruise. An electric bicycle always gives you the option to do and experience more. Here are a few great reasons to take one for a test ride today: E-bikes are for everyone; you don’t need to be a fitness superstar or love exercise to enjoy riding one. E-bikes are the great equalizer; they let people with different ability and fitness levels ride together. You can casually cruise beside your diehard cycling friends without breaking a sweat. That’s good for you, and for your friends. E-bikes make it simple and easy to use a bike for transportation. Sweat-free commute? Check. Not enough time to ride to work? You’ll beat the traffic. Destination too far away? Not anymore. One of the things I hear most often is “I would ride a bike, but I HATE climbing hills.” Man, the person saying that would probably be amazed by the way an e-bike confronts their greatest enemy. They might even start searching for hills to conquer. The bottom line is that whether you plan on commuting, cruising the bike path, or exploring local mountain bike trails on an e-MTB, these rides are all about fun and possibility. You can take my word for it, but the best way to find out what they’re all about is to take a test ride for yourself! So, you’ve tried one out and are ready to take the plunge and get an e-bike.
