One of the main reasons people buy an electric bike is for health and fitness, and another is ease of commuting and living costs. If you already own a bicycle, you have already experienced what it is like working up a sweat and then have to be presentable at work or look and act calm when socializing, I’ve played charades before like this and it’s no fun!

 

  • Instead of bringing an extra set of clothes to work (Even though it’s always a good idea for anything) or breathing like you just did a marathon, enjoy the breeze of moving effortlessly with the throttle doing the work for you or assisting pedaling uphill.

 

  • An E-Bike can be parked anywhere! Even if you have a scooter or motorcycle that looks like it would normally need to be on the street, leave your coins in your pocket and old concerns behind. Regular motorcycles can be seen parked in front of cafes, stores, and anywhere that is not in the way of the public.

 

  • E-Bikes do not qualify as a vehicle requiring a license to operate.

 

  • Many cities have bike lanes, use them to get around the traffic you were once stuck in when taking the bus or driving a car. You will notice your stress in traffic disappears thanks to your agility and ease of movement.

 

  • Even without bike lanes, maneuverability in all traffic conditions is superior.

 

  • As you learn your new route, all the traffic you have been passing on your new E-Bike will make you realize that it is much faster and more enjoyable than being stuck and annoyed in a car!

 

 

Health – Physical & Mental Wellness

There are many health benefits of riding an electric bicycle too! Not just for the beginner, but experienced and advanced riders as well. These positive attributes are both physical, and psychological.

 

  • For beginners, the pedal assist will get you going.

 

  • You can decrease the assist for a more challenging experience if you want.

 

  • Anytime you feel tired or fatigued, you can increase the assist. Similar to how some gym equipment has a fail-safe or catch. If you cannot complete a rep for example, the assist will catch your push and do it for you.

 

  • This will help you reach your fitness goals. As you progress, your lifestyle will already be getting healthier being outside and getting fresh air.

 

  • Instead of being discouraged, you will be looking forward to your next ride and feel excited!

 

  • Hand-eye coordination, agility, sharpness and overall lifestyle will improve and keep your metabolism burning.

 

  • Older riders can enjoy the full assist features that will reduce the strain on joints and muscle problems while wanting to stay active and fit.

 

  • For those who haven’t tried a bike for a while, its like having training wheels but they’re ELECTRIC TRAINING WHEELS!

 

  • Many riders notice their demeanor and stress from their commute is now dwindled and calm, instead of fretting and being unsure. This boosts confidence, motivation and overall morale.

 

A New and Improved Lifestyle

Getting outside and doing something active on a regular basis can be difficult with our busy schedules and way of life. All one needs to do is make improvements and see positive change like their diet, or method of commuting in this case.

Instead of going to the gym and paying a monthly fee where you may not even make the time for going, a great alternative is to buy an electric bike which will give you all the help you need up a challenging hill or in windy conditions.

All the fresh air and more exercise can be the beginning or part of an already healthy lifestyle. I found that meeting like-minded people living up to a similar standard creates and maintains a clear state of mind and builds habits that improves our lives and others around us.

The Electric Bike community is full of great people that help each other with technical & troubleshooting, insight, and sharing a vision for a cleaner and healthier environment for all to live in.

    I am an avid motorcycle rider and have been from a very young age. My first Honda 50 cc was purchased by me at the ripe old age of 13, and I used it to deliver newspapers daily to a route that totaled about 10 miles (along the local lakeshore to residents). Things have changed quite a bit in the last 50 years…

    The benefits of having an electric bike or motorcycle are many, and these are a mode of transportation I would consider using today over the traditional gasoline-powered motorcycle. It makes a lot more sense to save our environment a bit while still having the thrill of riding and feeling the wind blow against your face.

    The new e-bikes are lighter, smaller, more convenient, easy to ride and control, and cheap for what you get. You can also get models that will provide a combination of a workout with the convenience of the electric power when you want or need it. I am ready to give this a try. 

    It sounds like there is a really strong level of support and an active community to share in this journey. Thanks for the ideas! I am ready to purchase one today and get started! I will get started now with the local shops to see what they have and go from there…

      I know the feeling! Nothing like ripping through the wind on two wheels made of lightening 🙂 I ride an electric Motorcycle and I LOVE IT. No insurance, gas, broken or worn out parts, just nonstop go go go! 

      Most of these bikes are lithium powered but even the lead acid powered ones will still give you a cozy range of up to 30 kms on the middle / medium power setting. This would be even better with a pedal assisted electric bike, you can expect a slower ride but twice the range. When something does need to be replaced, it’s usually a part like a signal or lamp light. Easy and affordable!

      The electric bike community is nothing but progressive and positive, working together towards a cleaner and brighter future. Very insightful people and tons of knowledge can be discovered regarding health, fitness, tech and general awesomeness. Here is a video on the Emojo Lynx Folding Bike that you were checking out earlier, hope that gives you some insight on it’s versatility!

    Good to know about another interesting topic. Actually, this is exactly the information that I was looking for information about the Benefits of Electric Bikes & Motorcycles and when I landed on your website and read this post, it answered all my questions in detail. It’s very useful and can definitely be used as a great source for everyone who is interested in this topic.

      If you aren’t learning something new every day even if it’s building on something that you laid to rest, then what are you really doing? Staying the same is what that is, everyday is different meaning staying the same is a choice. I motivate people to do their own research and not just rely on a fancy article with lions tigers and bears!

      Are you looking for an electric bike? What kind do you have in mind? Let us know in an email or leave a reply to this comment and we’ll be happy to help you 🙂

    It’s interesting to know that an electric bike will not require any type of license to operate. A friend of my husband bought an E-bike, and we are looking for information. I will let my husband read this article to help him understand how an electrical bike works.

    I want to be able to ride around town with ease, but I’m not sure what kind of vehicle to get. I didn’t know that electric bikes were such a good option! The fact that they can get you up and down hills so easily makes them an ideal choice for me.

      Electric Bikes rule 🙂 What is your riding style? Do you need a bike for commuting or something more like a hybrid that can also handle more wet and muddier conditions?

    I want to make sure that my son can get to school easily, but I’m not sure how to help. I didn’t know that electric bikes don’t require a license or anything to use! That’s definitely something worth looking into for him. That seems like a great way to ensure that he doesn’t tire himself out during the long travel.

      You are correct! All you need is to be a responsible rider, this goes for walking, running, and minding your presence on the road when driving a car or truck. Having a sweet set of electric wheels will ensure that everyone sees you when you are rolling by, especially with headlights and a speaker for night rides!

    It’s great to learn that you can improve your metabolism by riding an electric bike. My wife and I are wanting to improve our overall health and we were wondering how we could increase our metabolism. I’ll be sure to tell her that we should start using an electric bike.

    Hi Rowan, I like that this post underlined that one of the many benefits that e bicycle offer is that it improves our hands and eyes coordination, apart from enabling us to park anywhere. The other day my wife mentioned she would like to take upcycling. I think I will gift her with an e bicycle since her birthday is next month.

      It’s good for everyone to practice exercises like this for not only the coordination, also for strength and agility too! Does your wife like a particular type? What is her riding style? Mountain, road, trails?

    It’s a great point that maneuverability will be much better on a bike or motorcycle, compared to a car. My brother is trying to decide on a new bike that he can use this summer. He needs to learn how to maintain it well so that the bike doesn’t have any serious issues.

    • Reply

      If your brother sticks with not rushing his decision, he will find the right one for him! And don’t worry too much about maintenance, E-Bikes are very simple in design and aside from the electrical components they are the same as regular bikes in most cases unless it’s a proprietary design.
