5 Reasons Why You May Want an eBike or eTrike

By Charnette Trimble


Elderly Man Riding an Electric

E-biking is quickly becoming a preferred mode of transport in the US for people of all ages. That’s because riding an electric bike is a lot less strenuous than riding a standard bike. The explanation for this is simple. An e-bike uses an electric motor and an assisted pedal operating mode. A sensor detects when you start pedaling the bike and then signals an electric motor to provide just the right amount of pedaling assistance needed. This assisted pedaling makes riding an e-bike feel just like riding a regular bike, but with must less effort needed, eliminating fatigue and exhaustion. If you are someone older with health complications such as arthritis, muscle stiffness, or joint problems, then you might think riding and safely operating a bike would be a big challenge for you. So, for older people who want to give e-biking a try, the following question arises: 

Are E-bikes Good for Elderly/Senior Riders? The answer is: Yes! 

E-bikes are better for elderly/senior riders as they make biking easier, safer, and more enjoyable. They can allow you to get the exercise you need without straining your muscles or joints. Besides, electric bikes allow you to improve your health and will not pollute the environment, so they are beneficial for both you and the environment.

Premium electric bikes come with performance and convenience features that make them comfortable, dependable, and easy to operate. As you read every word of this article you will be amazed to find out all the benefits of having an Electric Bicycle, and why it may be in your future.

So, if you are an older rider wanting to go e-biking, here are some great reasons to give an e-bike a try.

1.  More Distance in Less time

Electric Bicycles allow the user to go as far as 50 miles on a single charge while offering speeds of 30+ miles/hour. These battery packs can have a lifespan of up to 500 to 2,000 full charging cycles. And one can charge these batteries with a regular electrical outlet for up to 2000 full charge cycles.

 2.  Assist in Hill climbing

Electric Bicycles assist the cyclist when climbing hills, and conquering headwinds and long distances. This high torque driven systems along with your leg power (if you want to add to the momentum) can effectively flatten hills and overcome headwinds. Climb hills steeper than 1 in 10 (10%) grades and 1 in 7 (14%) with ease. This allows the rider to take in the sights more while smoothing out stresses.

3.  Low Costs and Maintenance

The cost of an Electric Bicycle is from less than $1000 to about $3,000. These bikes cost a little more than conventional bicycles, but when you factor in what other motorized vehicles cost, they are far less. Owning an Electric Bicycle has additional cost benefits over other motorized vehicles; not have to pay for parking, insurance, and registration. You will find that owning one of these bikes can save you a great deal of money in the long run.

4.  Faster Travel

In theory an average rider can go about 10mph on a flat stretch of road, but with electric bicycles one can go as fast as 30 mph. At these speeds one can travel faster than the average car in the city, which only averages 10 mph.

5.  No Sweat

Electric Bicycles allow you to arrive at your destination fashionably fresh and sweat free.

Transferring the load to the motor will allow the bicycle to do all the work for you. Or if you want to get a workout, pull the throttle back or turn the motor in the off position.

Can you see yourself outside cycling with the wind in your hair passing by other motorists, all while not even breaking a sweat? That reality can become yours with an Electric Bicycle.
