So, what is it like riding an electric bike?
In short, riding an e-bike is pretty similar to riding a
normal bike. However, the big difference is the amount of power you’ll need to
use. As typical with a normal bike, the rider pedals to drive the bike forwards
– yet, with an e-bike, the motor measures the rider’s input and adds assistance
depending on the level of effort that’s given. Essentially, the harder you
pedal, the more assistance you will get.
However, if you’re worried about not getting as much
exercise, e-bikes still count towards exercise. Although they alleviate some of
the work for you, they’re especially helpful for those who do not participate
in much exercise on a weekly basis. The alleviation of work the e-bike allows
for longevity for the rider – meaning they can ride faster and for longer
without being worn out. There are also various assistance modes to choose from
meaning electric bikes can be adaptable to the specific rider.
