Bike without compromise
Do you commute to work by bike, but don't want to arrive sweaty? E-bikes might be the answer for that problem. We hear a lot from people that want to commute to work by bicycle, but the added time for changing into cycling gear, take a shower at work, and suiting up for the day adds 45 minutes over car or metro commutes. That means getting up 45 minutes earlier. If you want a workout and willing to pay the time penalty, a morning workout always gets the day off to a good start. But at least you have the option. And you can aways tear it up on the way home.
Don't sweat it
A Portland State University Transportation Research and Education Center online survey found that while 67% of respondents felt they needed a shower after a conventional bike trip, 74% felt no shower was necessary after an e-bike trip.
Ride smarter, not harder
The real advantage to e-bikes is efficiency: climbing hills, fighting the wind, longer range rides. They might convince your friend or significant other to join you on the trails more often or they might enable you to commute to work in extreme heat without perspiring so much. Electric bikes remove many of the roadblocks and challenges that people face with traditional pedal-powered cycles.
