You will find with an electric bike that you have a multitude of positive
points, all making this an excellent choice. Not only will the electric
bike be fun and convenient, but they will also provide many more benefits
An electric bike does not require a license, registration, or even
insurance. While this is one way that the electric bike will save you
money, you will also save money in that the operating costs are minimal.
For example, the amount it will cost you on average to run your electric
bike is .03 per mile. Since the electric bike will not require an actual
parking space, you can save money for parking lot fees.
As everyone knows all too well, the cost of gasoline keeps rising. With
as much as 40% of our oil being imported, we are at the mercy of many
other countries. In situations such as war, the price of gasoline could
climb even higher. Using an electric bike removes the risk of paying more
since it is not dependent on gasoline.
Another value provided by an electric bike is that during bad weather when
bridges or roads wash out due to heavy rain, the electric bike can get you
through areas where cars cannot go. Even if you are stuck in heavy
traffic, when driving a car, you have to wait until the traffic starts
moving. Since an electric bike is considered a bike and not a motor
vehicle, such as a motorcycle, you do not have to wait along with the cars.
Instead, you can ride around to the side of traffic and get out of the jam.
Electric bikes are another tool in the fight against air pollution. Since
there are no emissions like what you would find from a car or even a
gas-powdered scooter, you are doing your part in reducing pollution.
Electric bikes can also be a safe mode of transportation by following some
Pay attention and predictable
Always wear a helmet
Learn and follow basic bicycle and traffic skills
If driving at dusk, make sure your electric bike has a good headlight and taillight
Choose safe, low traffic routes
Assume cars cannot see you - in other words, be a defensive driver
