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.
