Electric bikes offer more than a normal bicycle does. This shouldn’t be taken as a slur on traditional cycling - hopefully non-assisted bicycles will always be around. An electric bike just takes the freedom and mobility of a bicycle and pushes the frontiers of how you can use it.
Commuters are always looking for cheaper and more reliable ways of travelling. Cycling has often been a consideration, but the concern about turning up at work sweaty and exhausted usually keeps people stuck on the public transport gravy train.Electric bikes will get you to work, on time, fresh as a daisy, and virtually for free (pennies for electricity). They’re just like riding a normal bike, only with a couple of extra buttons for the assistance, and a display for the main statistics like speed, battery life, etc.
