The Problem with Cycling  

Cycling isn’t as really good as people make it out to be. It’s hard work. It takes a long time. And it doesn’t look nearly as fun when you have to dress up especially before and after travelling around. So of course, you and most other people stick to sitting in traffic or forking out for public transport...

Enter the electric bike

An electric bike is like strapping a fit athlete to your pedals. Suddenly, cycling becomes much, much easier. Nothing is faster, cheaper and as ridiculously good fun as riding an electric bike across town. It is the perfect solution for people who aren’t already cycling.

Of course, they’re not supposed to replace people who are already cycling (unless they’re older or physically can’t cycle without assistance anymore), but since everyone isn’t already riding around around in cycling lycra everywhere, this isn’t a problem. Electric bikes are great for encouraging cycling.

Electric bikes are really popular in countries where cycling culture is strong. From the end of 2010, there are about double the number of electric bikes in China alone as there are iPhones worldwide, and in Holland about one in eight bicycles are electric. The exciting news is this trend is hitting the UK like a storm...

Dozens of dealers are sprouting up across the country selling highly engineered, reliable electric bikes with excellent backup and support networks. And thanks to the soaring costs of fuel and travel, the economics of an electric bike make even more sense than ever. They normally pay for themselves well within a year.
