E-Bikes: Enabling, Exhilarating, Empowering ……

FUN amplified!

Electric hybrid bikes, commonly called E-Bikes, may sound space-age yet are simple in concept. E-bikes are bikes that come equipped with battery-powered electric motors.  The popularity of E-bikes is rooted in the reality that they make cycling a lot more fun for riders of all ability levels. These bikes are ridden like a regular bike, so the rider must pedal the bike, but the electric motors assist the rider with additional power (as little or much as you like) when needed or desired.  The electric motor doesn’t remove exercise from the ride: it helps riders of all ages and ability levels go farther and faster, even while tackling tough terrain.

Why an E-Bike?

Known for being quiet and non-polluting, E-bikes solve a lot of problems that may prevent people from riding as much as they would like.  E-bikes help riders get up hills, conquer headwinds, commute to work without getting sweaty, keep up with stronger riders, reduce transportation costs and carbon footprint, run errands or carry heavy groceries home from the store or market. 

E-bikes are a game changer for every rider. Once you’ve ridden one, it is easy to understand their popularity and why so many people are choosing to ride E.  Oh, and if someone asks you “isn’t that cheating?” You can reply “not cheating, enabling. I can ride a bike again!”
