We know that exercise has huge amounts of benefits but sometimes riding a traditional pedal bike can be off putting, especially when coming face to face with a steep hill on the way home.
So for those of us who need a little boost to help us make those goals sustainable, electric bikes make cycling possible for a much wider range of people, by providing assistance up hills, with carrying loads, and enabling you to go much greater distances.
This applies whether you are commuting, exercising alone or riding out as a family unit. Either way, an electric bike allows you to go further for longer. The studies show that people using electric bikes are doing more exercise than they otherwise would despite the extra help, the knock-on effect being that they are fitter and have less body fat.
