Commuting by Electric Bicycle in Vancouver

Commuting by Electric Bicycle in Vancouver

Throughout the last few years, using an electric bicycle to commute in Vancouver, BC has become very popular. An electric bike is a bicycle that comes with a battery and an electric motor. Most modern electric bikes have the capacity to travel a range of 40-80 KM's on just a single charge. However, the distance can turn out to be less if your ebike only uses an electric motor without any type of pedaling. Aside from this, there are also other benefits that you can enjoy by commuting using an ebike, especially in Vancouver.

The Benefits

As already mentioned, an electric bike comes with the help of a motor that can provide support to the rider through pedaling. This is useful when biking for longer distances or even just for a few kilometers most particularly when biking up hills. In order to get the best benefits out of the motor of your ebike, a combination of motor use and pedaling is highly recommended. The moment you feel like you are tired, you can then switch on to the electric motor mode.

Also, bicycle commuting in Vancouver can help you get to your destination a whole lot faster. Most ebikes have the capability to travel at a speed of up to 32km per hour, or higher when pedals are used together with the motor. On a regular bicycle, it may take about two or three times what it would on an electric bike. With the use of an electric bicycle, there is no need to exert too much effort in powering your ebike compared to a regular bicycle. Your time is valuable, which means that traveling faster is always better.

At the same time, the use of an electric bike is using a battery instead of using gasoline or diesel fuel, this is the primary reason that these bikes are so environmentally-friendly. With all the motorcycles, cars, and buses that are now running on the road, our environment has already been polluted enough. For this reason alone, bicycle commuting in Vancouver BC is the better option. Aside from simply using one for your personal use, you are also performing your social responsibilities.

An electric bike is also fun to ride. As a matter of fact, most owners are proud to ride their bikes, riding on them anywhere traditional bikes are allowed. These ebikes come in many models, styles, and colors - finding one that suits you is easy. Whether you prefer to ride in the city or out in the mountains, there is a perfect Ebike waiting for you.
