e-Bikes

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!

The bike is comfortable and easy to use.
We called in to Access on impulse and we both road tested 2 bikes each. I bought one because it is quite simply the most comfortable bike I have ever ridden. No stretch forward straining my upper back and neck. My bike is the Access Exmoor. No hard sell, and a knowledgeable team
Having reached the age of 71, I decided that having retired I would get myself a bike again, and after much thought and also a lot of time on the internet, I decided that an electric bike would suit me better, and also that a folding bike would be useful as I could go places with my bike in the car, without the hassle of removing a wheel each time, also living in a flat a folding bike in It's bag is a lot less obtrusive. While on the Internet I came across 'Axcess Electric Bikes' site, this was not only very helpful, but gave a very wide choice of bikes, both in style and price. I drove up to Honiton to have a look at them for real. On arrival I saw a second-hand bike outside which I really liked, but It was not a folding one and I had to remind myself that I had decided on a folding Bike. On going in The showroom I was greeted by a very friendly lady who as it turned out was very helpful and knowledgeable. There was no pressure to buy and was encouraged to take my time to look at the stock. I decided to buy a New Axcess Shetland and asked to take it with me. The Gent who was working on the bikes in the workshop area, said that he would check it over immediately, and he also demonstrated how it folded and fitted in the bag which I also purchased. I was allowed to take it out for a test ride before purchase. It is a lovely bike, as has a really firm feel to it, and ideal for what I want. Being a folding bike it has a step through frame which I find easier a feature that even my Sister likes. (Come to that she did not want me to take the bike away with me when I visited her.). I use it for shopping, going on photography outings, or just going for a ride. I am still amazed as to how effective the battery assist is. The ratings only go up to very good, but I would rate both the bike and the firm as excellent. Should I decide to buy another Bike in the future, I shall go straight to Axcess Elctric Bikes of Honiton. Since retiring from a very physical job I found my knees were getting stiff, cycling has cured that. Thank You
