An e-bike, also known as a ‘Pedalec’, is a bicycle with battery–powered ‘assist’ which means every time you pedal you get a boost from the motor. E-Bikes come in a variety of styles and colours with a maximum speed capability of 25km per hour, this is as fast as the motor will go. You can of course go faster than the battery limit of 25km, but this will require more effort on your part. Electric bikes are great for all ability levels and make for ideal commuter bikes as the motor will help you pedal which means less effort and a more comfortable cycle. Breezing through any uphill climbs and no arriving at your destination all sweaty! An e-bike is ideal if you have longer to travel as the pedal assist and average 25km speed will get you to your destination in no time. You can travel between 40-80kms on one battery charge and with the majority of batteries removable, just take it will you and charge in your home or at your desk. A great substitute to a second family car for anyone looking to reduce their carbon emissions and opt for more environmentally friendly sustainable transport.
