The electric bike is slowly becoming popular in the United States for
transportation although the electric bike has been popular for years in
other countries such as Sweden, Denmark, Japan, Belgium, Norway, and
Holland. Unfortunately, the use of a bike in the United States is rarely
considered a viable option for transportation. People think they need a
car and if they do not have one, they use the public transit system, taxicab,
or a ride from a friend. In fact, there have been numerous times when
statistics from other countries have been brought to the United States showing
that electric bikes are an excellent option, only to have the information
impatiently waved off with disinterest.
Did you know that there are more than 700 million cars and light trucks in
the world and the United States? Interesting, the United States accounts
for only 4% of the world's population, yet has two-thirds of those cars.
These cars are responsible for much of the atmospheric pollution and noise.
With the use of electric bikes, people would be able to get where they need
to go with no problem while helping lower the level of pollution and noise.
Electric bikes are affordable, efficient, require minimum maintenance and
storage space, and when you need to park, you do not have to fight for those
coveted parking spaces. The electric bike also promotes a healthy lifestyle,
eliminates the need for foreign fuel altogether, and is fun to ride.
Amazingly, one of the complaints about riding electric bikes is the wearing
of helmets, which does not make much of an argument. Hair can always be
fixed after riding so this should not even be a consideration. It would be
no different from riding a regular bike or motorcycle. The electric bike
can be used for main transportation of getting to and from work or school,
or merely for recreation purposes of traveling to the corner store, park,
swimming pool, or to a friend's house. Another great thing about an electric
bike is that you can pedal when you want or allow the electric motor to get
you up those annoying hills. For example, a pedal-activated electric bike
can easily glide up hills. With this option, you can pedal for exercise or
if you need to arrive at your destination ready for business, you can allow
the electric bike to do the work for you.
Electric bikes are lightweight and run on a quiet, small sized motor that
is 100% electric. Think of it this way, you can ride your electric bike
for months before you would reach the amount of expense it costs to put
one gallon of gas in your car. Additionally, many places have electricity
that is powered from non-petroleum resources, adding even more to the
benefit list. If you think you would be interested in riding an electric
bike but you are not sure if it is the right decision for you, visit a local
dealer and try one. You will discover the benefits outweigh any negatives.
