E-bikes are becoming increasingly popular all over the world, and rightly so. The advantages to taking an e-bike for a spin as part of your daily commute or just as an alternative to the regular bike are endless.

Bikes are usually regarded as the epitome of ecologically aware travel. Many people have changed parts of their daily journeys into work, replacing the bus or personal car with bikes. But now more and more people are choosing to go one up and replace regular bikes with e-bikes. These vehicles offer the opportunity to go faster, with the battery powered propulsion getting the rider moving at speeds that could easily hit 15-20 miles per hour.
e-Bikes – A better choice

e-bikesWhat makes e-bikes a better choice over mopeds is the fact that they are very eco-friendly and rely on batteries rather than fossil fuels. They are the perfect middle ground if you’re looking to get a little extra help with the pedals but don’t want a full-blown petrol-head engine. E-bikes come in a wide range of designs and colours, so the battery doesn’t have to be bulky or unsightly. In fact, there are certain models which incorporate a battery disguised as a water bottle, so the e-bike looks just like your old bicycle.

E-bikes are easy to use – the motor can often be activated by a simple on/off button, or by a handle similar to a throttle that bikers can pull whenever they need a little extra speed. When the motor is not needed and is kept switched off, an e-bike has all the functionality and features of a push bike – so buying an e-bike doesn’t have to be the end of physical activity.

In fact, e-bikes are currently taking on a progressive role in helping cardiac patients recover and are often recommended by medical professionals as a great transition between a stationary bike and a regular pedal-powered bike. On top of playing an important part in the rehabilitation of cardiac patients, e-bikes can also prove to be an invaluable asset in our everyday exercise routine. While some people may be daunted by the prospect of taking a regular bike out for a long journey, the e-bike might prove to be compelling enough!

E-bikes are loved not only by commuters and urban folk with hectic schedules who need a way to get around. In fact, even police forces in some US towns have adopted e-bikes as transportation, and there’s talk that police officers in London may start using them soon too!

Axcess were the nearest specialist supplier of Ebikes, and there web page gave good descriptions. I visited their premises, tried out their folding models around the factory estate and on that basis chose a ELife folding bike as the one best suited to my needs. I have been pleased with the model I chose. - It is of robust construction with front fork suspension and it deals well with farm tracks and forest trails - it folds easily and fits in the back of the car - it shrinks distances compared with my old pedal bike - it has coped with all hills I have so far tried it on - I don't know what its range is (30 miles seems about right for gentle countryside). I had thought that battery capacity would be a limitation, but it is not. It is in fact saddle soreness.
I recently purchased the Axcess Electric Shetland folding bike which fits nicely In the back of my SUV without having to lower the rear seats. It’s an excellent bike and build .. easy to mount and dismount .. perfectly suitable for me as I am now in my mid fifties and appreciate a little assistance nowadays on longer journeys and Inclines , that said It’s a great bike for any adult whatever there age and as they say ... It has the power to get you there and back. I have previously owned two other electric cycles of another brand that were hard work to cycle when the power was off even on the flat. I’m pleased to say that this Is not an Issue with the Axcess Electric Bike that you can pedal with ease If and when the power Is not required ..
