Why Ride an E-Bike in Ashburton
Cover greater distances
It can be tiring travelling far on pedal power alone. But, with an E-bike, you’re able to ride much further, much faster. Not only that, but the effort you exert on an E-bike is far less than on a traditional bike, so you can remain feeling fresh and invigorated while still getting in some exercise.
This makes getting around Ashburton a breeze, as not only can you easily zip past traffic, but you can cover larger distances than what you would if you were walking or riding a traditional bike. In other words, you can make it to any all-important meeting in good time while still smelling as fresh as a daisy.
Less Complication, Greater Simplicity
It can be time consuming and costly to find and purchase a car and get a driver’s license. Cars also require a lot of upkeep and have extra expenses attached like insurance and servicing fees. E-bikes offer a great, cost-effective solution, as you don’t need a special license to ride one and the initial purchase is far cheaper than a car. Even the maintenance and repair costs associated with an E-bike are a fraction of what you’d spend on another type of vehicle, which makes owning an E-bike a far less complicated and far more budget-friendly option.
An Extra Boost (of confidence)
You can operate E-bikes according to your specific needs. This means that you can choose exactly when, where, and how you want to use manual pedalling versus battery power. That is, you can opt to cycle completely unassisted whenever you want, but can as easily gain an extra boost of power by making use of the automated option. In the latter case, you’ll still need to pedal, but far less, as the bike is motorised.
The motorised option is especially helpful for navigating hills, riding against headwinds, and/or keeping up with fellow cyclists. If you’re not too fit to begin with, an E-bike can also help to boost your confidence as you begin to ride more and more and, in the process, get fitter. This might even lead to you using the battery powered option less over time.
