It seems like only yesterday that I was on the hunt for a cheap used car. Between spending endless hours on Craigslist, and doing laps around the city hunting for that familiar orange and black “For Sale” sign, I just couldn’t find anything in my budget.
And then I found my e-Bike.
The idea of an e-Bike never really dawned on me. To be honest, I imagined my trendy, micro-brew drinking friends when I heard the word “bicycle.” But I’ve since been saved, so to speak, and I’m here to tell you the 10 reasons you should join the e-Bike party!
1. Save some cash
Delete that driver app and save your paper, yo. You’ll get to your destination in about the same amount of time, AND you’ll be ballin’ #AllDay.
2. See more of your city
The city is yours! A full charge will take you anywhere you need to go––up to 50 miles in pedal assist mode. If you’re running low on battery, stop and try out that new coffee shop you’ve been meaning to hit up, and charge it while you explore.
3. Get stuff done
e-Bikes let you zip around your neighborhood much faster than on foot. You can scan that file, grab cat food, and pay rent in a fraction of the time it takes now.
4. Work that booty
Grabbing an e-Bike is a great way to start getting in shape. If you’ve been meaning to start working out, the built-in pedal assist is a great introduction to feeling the burn!
5. Up your game
Do you have any idea how many hotties will want to ask about your new eBike when you’re out? You’ve been waiting for this. Now’s your chance.
6. Try more restaurants
Don’t be out of the loop anymore. You can get to all of your favorite restaurants that don’t offer delivery now! (You’ll also have the extra scratch to foot the bill.)
7. Try less restaurants
Want to stay in an get your chef on? An eBike lets you fly to the grocery store on a whim!
8. Feel the sunshine
Grab some more vitamin D! How are you going to soak all of that happiness in if you’re in a hot car all day?
9. Keep up with cars
Sometimes the bike lane unexpectedly ends, and you have to bike in the street with cars. Well, you don’t have to fear for your life anymore (whew!). On an eBike, it’s easier to keep up with the pace of traffic!
10. Save the world
Did you know that transportation accounts for nearly 30% of U.S. Global Warming emissions? You can change that by choosing lanes over roads. The power is yours!
