The Benefits Of Commuting By E-Bike

Updated: Jun 15, 2021

You don’t have to be a ‘cyclist’ to start commuting to work by bike! Lack of confidence in their cycling ability is one of the main reasons why many people are reluctant to cycle to work. However, using an E-Bike can relieve all that stress, and has several advantages as well.

There are many benefits to riding an E-bike to work. There are health benefits, you’ll save time and money and overall it’s fun! However, if you’re still feeling unsure, it's worth reading our answers to some E-bike frequently asked questions and hopefully, you’ll be riding to work sooner than you think.

Do I really get exercise on an E-bike?

One myth that we’re here to debunk about electric bikes is that you can’t get a workout. In actuality, you will get more exercise from an E-bike than you would from a regular bike.

Firstly, you’ll use an E-bike much more often! Research shows that electric bikes are used 3-4 times a week, far more than the average person uses a conventional bike. And according to a study published recently in the Transportation Research Interdisciplinary Perspectives journal, E-bikers take longer trips by E-bike and bicycle, compared to cyclists.

You can also tailor your workout depending on your needs when riding an electric bike. Turning the power assistance up and down will vary your workout. Furthermore, if you’ve got an injury but would still like to exercise, you can put the bike into Turbo mode.

If I commute to work by E-bike, will I arrive at work all sweaty?

This is a big issue for people considering cycling to work, especially If you don’t have access to a shower or changing facilities at the office. Yet with an E-bike, you can adjust the power level accordingly and your commute will feel similar to an energizing walk.

Do I need to wear lycra?

You can wear whatever you want when riding an E-bike, just as long as you can move in it! Here at PowerRide, we would strongly recommend you wear a bright jacket and helmet for safety reasons.

Can I save money by commuting on an E-bike?

E-bikes are typically more expensive to buy than a regular bike. However, they’re good value for money in the long run. To charge the battery on an E-bike, it costs just 6p of electricity, which is the same as boiling a kettle! Don’t worry about having to recharge while you’re working as a full battery could take you 50-60 miles.

Travelling by E-bike would make your car redundant. You don’t have the expense of MOTs, or road tax to think about and you’ll never have to pay for parking.

An E-bike will help you get to work cheaper and faster and will help save the environment too. Here at PowerRide, our E-bikes are just £995 with 48 hour UK delivery! Head to our website to shop our E-bikes today or read another one of our blogs by clicking here.
