Electric Bikes

Electric bikes are a method of transport that has become more popular in the past years. They have numerous advantages; as long as you are aged 14 or above, you do not need to worry about a license or insurance and fuel costs whilst in Great Britain.

What Is An Electric Bike?

According to Transport For London, an eBike “is a standard pedal cycle fitted with a battery and electric motor”. Unlike full-power or no-pedal bikes, an eBike uses a pedal assist motor instead of a hub motor. This separate motor is located towards the rear wheel where it provides the assistance. This motor typically provides the pedal assist either by driving the wheel through the gear sprocket or by pressing against the rear tyre itself.

In order to be considered road-legal and able to be used on roads and cycle paths where ‘normal bicycles’ are allowed, the bicycle must have its speed restricted to 25km/h (15.5 mph) and the power cannot exceed 250 watts. Whilst it is possible to go faster than the restricted speed limit, the motor will not provide assistance above this speed, so you’ll be entirely reliant on your ‘leg power’.

Cycle To Work On An eBike

The electric bike is ideal for use when cycling to work. Many people like the idea of getting more exercise in their day to day lives by cycling to work, but many are put off from the idea because of long cycle times and the level of exhaustion you’ll encounter when you begin this lifestyle change. However, the eBike can provide assistance with these issues.

Cycling to work has many advantages; it can even improve your performance in the workplace. When your exercise, your body releases chemicals like serotonin, dopamine, and various endorphins. These chemicals provide a mood boost whilst helps you to combat the effects of workplace stress. So instead of reaching for the coffee before a day at the office, reach for the cycle helmet and bike to work instead.
