Today I am going to discuss the great thing about having an e-bike and the ways you can utilize it. Some people have never tried riding one but the purpose of this post is to point out some good ways to make the most out of your e-bike.
Save On Gasoline Cost
The great thing about an e-bike is that it will make for inexpensive commuting to and from work for those who work a good distance from their home. The fact that you don’t have to gas up to go to work daily, the e-bike is making it possible to save some money.
It also helps you reduce the wear and tear on driving your car daily which in turn results in less maintenance which is another savings to the pocket.
As A Business Owner…
I have used the e-bike to help me get to and from my customers since I started my lawn service earlier this year. It is not capable of taking me to customers who are a really long distance from me but it works well within a 15-mile radius.
The only difference is the travel time which may take me 10 or 15 minutes longer but it definitely saves on the operating cost of using my vehicle. Plus I enjoy the ride between customers. I do have two batteries to ensure that I don’t get stuck with not enough battery charge since the trailer is not light in weight.
A Good Startup For Begining Cyclist
There are a lot of people, believe it or not, that would go on bike outings if they thought they could physically handle it.
The e-bike will make it possible to handle the physical part of bike riding because you can utilize the motor if the ride gets tough. Because it is pedal assisted you can gradually build yourself up to riding using your own power in time.
I used my e-bike to get my wife out there with me so she could feel the thrill of using cycling for a weekend activity. Plus she always is saying she wants to lose a little weight and this was a perfect opportunity to introduce her to cycling.
It will also help her improve her cardio and working those muscles she probably has not worked for awhile as she is enjoying herself.
Exploring Areas You Can’t In A Car
With an e-bike, you can hit those trails that go through scenic areas of your place of residence or even on vacation in other locations.
E-bikes make for some good street riding since they seem to have a different effect on automobile drivers compared to the traditional pedal bike.
I noticed this when I ride my e-bike instead of my traditional bike to work. The drivers seem to give you a little more respect. I assume it is because you can travel a little faster when you have the motor engaged.
Shopping With Enjoyment
If you like to shop whether it is for groceries or to the hardware store, you can ride your e-bike instead of using your car if you add some accessories like bicycle commuter bags or a trailer.
I added a trailer to mine to haul my lawn equipment and you could do the same to carry anything you may purchase. It actually makes the trip fun for me.
Keep Safety In Mind
Any time you are operating a car or bicycle safety is important. It would not hurt to make sure you have some good lighting. I have added a turn signal light to my e-bike to let drivers know when I am turning. Especially when I am turning left.
Head protection and the proper clothing also is important for that chance that might come up where you have to come in contact with the ground due to a spill.
E-bikes are fun to ride and at the same time allows you to work out your body if you so choose. They also help you preserve your automobile because of the lack of daily driving.
Not only does it save you money on gas but it is also good for the environment as well. And don’t forget that it is a great way to introduce the new cyclist to the world of cycling for fun.
