Which is right for me?
Choosing between a regular bike and an electric bike should take into account a lot of factors. The most important question to ask yourself is what you want the bike for.
If you’re using it for commuting or travelling long distances, you might want an electric bike to make the journey easier. Similarly, if you’re not as young or fit as you used to be, or your local area is filled with steep hills, electric bikes make cycling feel much easier and less daunting. E-bikes are perfect for those rides where you don’t want to push and exhaust yourself.
However, if you’re looking for a bike you can get out during the summar months to cycle around the park, or you won’t be travelling very far, a regular bike may be fine for you. There’s also cost to consider – electric bikes are more expensive to buy than regular bikes.
In short, choosing the right bike for you is personal. Why not take the time to demo both regular and electric bikes and see which you prefer? We offer test rides at our e-bike centres so you can try out the bikes for yourself.
