E-bikes are handy, eco-friendly, affordable, and they’re gradually becoming one of the most popular modes of transport in the world, especially as more people try to reduce their carbon footprint to combat climate change. For us, e-bikes are more than just a business but a way to contribute towards creating a cleaner environment and ultimately, a better world. That’s why we’re making e-bikes so accessible by offering a $30 discount on our already affordable e-bike rental subscription. Remember to use the promotion code k30 at checkout to enjoy your discount.
All of that aside, what is the point of an electric bike? Why are they taking over streets in Europe, China and now even New York? Today, we’ll break down the biggest benefits of buying an electric bike and show you why cycling is such a good idea.
An e-bike will take you further than a conventional bicycle while allowing you to maneuver your way through traffic like a pro. . Depending on the battery's capacity, the travel distance can reach 110+, and if the battery dies on the way, you can use it like a traditional bike and finish the journey using your own power.
E-bikes also offer assistance with motor power that makes it much easier and more comfortable to tackle steep hills, and if you like, you can bring an extra battery with you. At Whizz, we offer e-bikes with an extra battery, and honestly, it’s great, especially if you’re a courier that needs a reliable bike that won’t let you down. Swapping batteries is super easy so that’s a bonus.
Using an electric bike not only serves personal transportation needs, but can also help you get around when doing a side hustle. For example, as their primary mode of transportation. And with a Whizz electric scooter, that transportation just got even better.
Technically, e-bikes work in a similar way to traditional bicycles, and it’s kind of interesting to see how positively they can affect the body. Riding an e-bike can help keep you active and fit, which is great news for your heart health and even your mindset, as we know that exercise is a net positive for mental health overall. Even if you’re someone who prefers to drive most of the time, it’s good to cycle at least a few times per month just for fitness reasons and also, for fun!
The health benefits of riding an e-bike don’t stop there, however, as they can do wonders to strengthen your leg muscles and even improve your vision. Overall, cycling is one of the cheapest ways to improve mental and physical shape, and unlike the gym, you can pick and explore the scenery and discover new locations all the time.
Cycling can also boost energy, improve mood, and even positively affect blood pressure.
Overall cycling can help to improve your muscles, flexibility, mood, heart rate, and blood pressure. This makes it an excellent option for anyone looking to improve their health because it’s affordable, not risky, and easy to start. And let’s not forget that it’s also great for coordination.
As gasoline prices go up, freaking out car drivers everywhere, e-cyclists remain unaffected. In fact, you can save a lot of money on bicycle commuting. It’s also a smart choice for courier and delivery workers as it’s one less thing for you to worry about in terms of your expenses.
You should also consider the fact that there’s isn't much additional equipment required to ride an electric bike. All you need is a pump to make sure you don’t get stranded in case of an tire emergency. The price to keep your bike going is much lower than other types of transportation, so it’s definitely worth it for that alone.
Another major benefit of riding an ebike, which we mentioned briefly earlier, is its positive impact on the environment. E-bikes are eco-friendly and considered good for the environment as they help reduce air pollution via Co2 emissions.
We honestly believe that if more people rode e-bikes the world would be much cleaner and it’ll definitely pay off for the next generations. The more bikes on the road, the better for the environment so consider reducing your time on the gas-guzzler and hop on a bike from now and then. And if you’re a courier, you’ll have the bragging rights of offering carbon-neutral deliveries, which will make your service even more attractive to environmentally conscious customers.
Noise is a huge problem in most major cities, and it can be a major source of headaches for many. So in a way, choosing an e-bike is your way of mitigating that as power assisted e-bikes are absolutely silent, and riding them is a fantastic feeling. It creates a much nicer atmosphere for cities. For example, compare Tesla cars and normal cars and you’ll see that the lack of noise is one of the factors that make these cars so cool.
Let’s face it; it’s super easy to bring your e-bike home and with foldable e-bikes, you can save even more space. Plus, you can add overnight storage to your Whizz subscription for just for $29 per month and make the experience of owning an e-bike even more convenient.
As most e-bike riders can confirm, they’re very safe to ride. But you still might need a helmet, so be mindful of yourself on the road as e-bikes can give you a feeling of freedom such as you’ve never experienced before on the road.
You’ll hear a lot of e-bike owners saying that they regret not getting to work by bike earlier because they’re so convenient. An e-bike will help you avoid traffic, thus getting you where you're going much faster.
Of course, this is not to underestimate the value of regular bicycles, but they don’t work as smoothly as their electrically powered counterparts. For instance, in an e-bike, you can use throttle only or pedal assistance and the speed at which you travel will depend on the class of e-bike you have.
Speaking of which, there are three e-bike classes to choose from: class one, two, and three, which we’ve written a whole guide about . Suffice to say, if you need an e-bike for longer riding, you don’t necessarily need the most expensive battery and this makes longer trips accessible even for budget bikes. What’s more, battery-powered bikes are super beneficial for commuting purposes.
We could go on all day about e-bikes but we’ll just leave it at that for today. We’ll wrap up this article by giving you some cliff notes of why e-bikes are worth it. Simply put, e-bikes are accessible, healthy, convenient, and eco-friendly.If you’re ready to get started with e-bike cycling, get yourself a Whizz e-bike subscription stat, and remember to use the promotion code k30 at checkout to get a $30 discount. And if you happen to be making deliveries in the Manhattan area, don’t hesitate to give us a holler.
