What Exactly is an Electric Bicycle?
  • An electric bicycle is the new craze in many
    areas, so knowing what it is might be ideal for
    those interested in learning more. When youre
    considering a way to get the most out of the way
    you get around, then an electric bicycle might be
    the best bet. These bicycles come with plenty of
    benefits, so you never have to worry about not
    being able to get more out of the bike that
    youre driving around when it comes to sitting
    down and reaching your destination. Once you do
    this, you will find that there is a lot out there
    for you to make use of.
  • An electric bicycle is able to do a lot for the
    user. Not only does it run on a battery that
    charges up, but it can also be peddled to the
    destination if the battery fails or if the user
    wants to get a bit of exercise during their ride.
    This makes it an ideal choice to go with when you
    want something versatile and that is going to
    help out not only your wallet, but also your
    health and the environment.
  • Working much like an electric car would work, you
    have to charge the battery that is on the bike up
    before going anywhere. Once charged, you can then
    go up to 40 miles away or so depending on the
    battery that the bike is equipped with. Keep in
    mind that these batteries are just batteries so
    youre not going to be able to go very fast on
    the bike, usually no more than 30mph. This might
    be something to think about if youre going to be
    driving in areas where the speed limit is 50mph
    or more, it can become dangerous if there are no
    sidewalks or bike lanes.

Electric Bicycle and Who is Riding on Them
  • Electric Bikes in the City
  • Electric bikes are big in the city, but when it
    comes to using them to their full advantage then
    you want to make sure that youre choosing a
    place where you can easily ride them around. The
    city is generally that place. One of the biggest
    places youre going to find these bikes, or other
    electric modes of transport are on the streets of
    many packed cities. When the cities are packed,
    no one wants to wait an hour to go somewhere ten
    minutes down the road. This is when these bikes
    come in handy. You can zip around corners and go
    right to your destination without having to wait
    forever to do so.
  • Electric Bikes are Not Just For the City
  • Keep in mind that electric bikes are not just for
    the city. These bikes can be used anywhere that
    you would like to use them. You just have to
    remember that they cannot go anywhere that the
    speed limit is higher than what they can go,
    unless there is a designated bike lane for them
    to move down. With the right bikes out there, you
    will find that they work great on both paved
    roads and sidewalks, but also dirt paths if you
    live in an area that has a lot of those instead.

The Many Benefits of an Electric Bicycle
  • They get you to where you need to go without
    having to worry about filling the tank
  • They are better for the environment since they
    use a battery and not gas or emissions to get
    there
  • They are more cost effective in terms of purchase
    price, maintenance and to keep them running
  • They are pretty fast in terms of walking or even
    using a regular bicycle to get to where you need
    to go
  • They fit easily throughout traffic, so you dont
    have to worry about being stuck in a place
  • You will get many places much faster in busy
    areas than when you use a taxi or use your own
    car

6
The Many Benefits of an Electric Bicycle
  • They are less stressful and a great way to reduce
    the amount of anger, stress or discomfort youre
    under when you take a drive on them
  • You will end up getting more exercise and being
    able to enjoy the outdoors more when you use an
    electric bicycle
  • It provides more sustainability for all when used
    regularly instead of the other types of transport
    that you will find out there
  • You have many options to choose from when
    choosing an electric bicycle for yourself or you
    can equip your own bike with a motor that can
    turn it into an electric bicycle
  • You do not need a license to use an electric
    bicycle which is beneficial to some that may not
    have one. This is also great for those teens and
    older kids that do not have licenses yet but want
    to get places faster
  • While they do not go very fast, they do provide a
    way for you to cut around areas where vehicles of
    regular size might be stuck

Where Would You Ride an Electric Bicycle
  • Busy Cities
  • Busy cities are the number one place where youre
    going to find these electric bikes being rode
    from one place to the next. While regular bikes
    are often found, many people found that adding an
    electric motor to them helps them get there
    faster.
  • Small Towns
  • Small towns where everyone knows everyone are
    great to ride these bikes around. Not only can
    you get to the corner store faster, but you dont
    really have to worry about lots of traffic or
    having to go too fast while on the bike. They
    have a lot of places that the person can stop and
    ride their bike but that are all under 30mph
    while you do so, since these bikes are not very
    fast to begin with since theyre battery
    operated.
  • Right Around
  • Wherever you want to go, as long as it is right
    around the area, you can make sure that you do so
    right on the electric bike. This is a great way
    to get to many places, but one that is not going
    to cost you a lot. They can only go so far on a
    single charge, so keep this in mind, but always
    know that you have the option of peddling
    yourself in most instances when you need to get
    there anyway but the battery and motor need a
    charge to get you going faster.

How Does an Electric Scooter Work?
  • Electric scooters run fully on batteries due to
    the adaptation from the gas powered ones to the
    fully battery charged ones. The battery is able
    to be recharged time and time again, essentially
    saving the user money over time to ride this
    instead of a gas powered scooter or even an
    automobile.
  • Usually the batteries are made from Lithium or
    lead and can last for up to 40 miles depending on
    the battery. The motor is right on the frame and
    is powered through the electricity that is sent
    from the battery to the motor on the bike.
    Depending on the type of scooter, this battery
    power then makes either one or both wheels move
    to push the scooter and the rider forward when
    the gas is pressed on the handle.
  • Bear in mind that when the scooter is being
    propelled forward, since it is battery powered,
    it is not going to go over 30mph at any given
    time. This is why theyre not able to go on
    highways or straight aways that are over this
    speed limit for safety reasons.

The Benefits of Using an Electric Scooter
  • Eco-Friendly Choice
  • For those that love to save the environment, an
    electric scooter is a great choice to go with.
    Not only can you benefit from the use of the
    scooter, but you can also help the earth benefit
    from it. There are no harmful emissions going
    into the atmosphere and you dont have to worry
    about engine residue or pumping gas into the
    motor. It is all clean energy flowing from a
    battery.
  • More Affordable All Around
  • Since you do not have to replace a lot of the
    components that you would replace on a gas
    powered scooter or other item, then you dont
    have to worry about the extra costs associated
    with the maintenance of the product. Not only
    that, but youre also not paying for the gas to
    put into the scooter. You can go around town
    using this scooter to get everywhere you need
    too.
  • Easy to Get Through Tight, Cramped Areas
  • If you live in a city, then you know that getting
    from one place to the next is not something that
    is easy to do. Not only do you worry about making
    it to a place on time, but you have to consider
    the many ways youre able to get to where you
    need to go.

10
Who Uses an Electric Scooter to Get Around?
  • Those That Live in Busy Cities
  • Anyone that lives in a busy city is going to
    benefit from using an electric scooter. While
    they do not go fast, you can get from your
    apartment or house to the work space that you
    have to drive into by using a scooter. You dont
    have to worry about getting stuck in traffic,
    having to go in the car pool lane, paying for gas
    to get there or even hailing and then paying a
    taxi. None of these problems are yours anymore
    when you have an electric scooter.
  • Those That Want a Quick Way to Get Around Town
  • Anyone that wants to get around their town
    faster, but in a way that is not going to cost
    them money then a scooter is a great option.
    Short distances on a scooter benefit the person
    as they can only go up to 40 miles when charged.
    However, they do not require gas, so it is also
    saving you money to go around the corner to the
    store or visit a friend that might be down the
    street and needs a little help.
  • Great for Older Kids and Teens
  • If you have a teen that is starting to drive, but
    is nervous, start them off with an electric
    scooter. Theyre legally able to drive them
    around many towns and cities, plus they give them
    the experience that they might need while riding
    on the roads in a car.

11
Is an Electric Scooter Cost Effective?
  • Understanding a bit about how these scooters work
    is always a good thing. You want to make sure
    that youre not worrying about putting gas in the
    scooter or having to maintain the scooters
    engine. While you do have to care for the scooter
    overall, the cost of maintenance and to keep the
    scooter running over time is important.
  • Since the electric scooters run on electricity,
    they have a battery in them that requires a
    charge. Once charged, the scooter can go up to 40
    miles away from its starting point. However, you
    have to keep in mind that you will have to
    account for the miles to get back to where you
    started from.
  • Scooters can still get you places faster than
    other modes of transportation if youre riding
    around town or when the city streets are filled
    with traffic and there is no way to get to where
    you need to go. Being patient is something you
    have to do in a car during these times. However,
    in a scooter, you can go around all of this and
    get to your destination in less than half the
    amount of time of a vehicle on the roadway, from
    the same starting point.
  • Take the time to familiarize yourself with the
    use of an electric scooter. Ask the salesperson
    questions, learn more about how it helps and its
    benefits and find out if this is something that
    is really going to benefit you. It has already
    made a difference in so many others lives and
    now it is time for you to see the difference in
    yours.
