Why an electric bike makes the best Christmas gift

November 20, 2017 Cycling Electric Bikes News

Forget the new iPhone X, this Christmas, one of the best gifts you can give is a brand new bike. We’re not talking just any old bike, an electric bike is a gift of independence, freedom and joy, regardless of the age you’re buying for.

It’s exhilarating to get a new bike for Christmas. You start the new year with a new form of transport! Imagine being able to enjoy cycling around your hometown, to work and for leisure with electric assistance. No sweats, no hill climb worries, just relaxed journeys to embark upon.

There’s a revolution, and you need to be part of it. E-bikes are changing the way we get around.


Electric bikes are rapidly growing in popularity and as we approach 2018, we are truly becoming a ‘go green’ society. If you’re an everyday commuter, you’re likely looking for an economical, practical form of transportation, but what if you could travel in a way that’s environmentally friendly and encourages a healthy lifestyle?

Christmas is just around the corner, and an electric bike would make the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one.

Battery powered cars will not solve the UK’s air pollution, congestion or obesity issues. But electrically-assisted bicycles could. By 2040, new diesel and petrol cars will be banned and electric alternatives will become the ‘norm’, and some of us are looking to bring this travel mode into practice already. Hurrah, no more choking on fumes!

Electric bikes are changing lives

With an electric bike, the elderly can commute in a way that keeps them active, students can get to campus quicker than ever before, leisure cyclists can take on more challenging routes and commuters can power through their journey.

Fitness is also a huge part of the e-bike revolution. A new study shows that a daily cycle commute is an equivalent to the weight loss of a five-day gym routine. When a new year begins, people are very keen to adjust their lifestyle for health improvement reasons. Habitual cycling is linked with reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and electric bikes, in particular, have been found to have notable cardiovascular benefits.

As a favourite gift this Christmas, we’ve seen a strong trend of continued interest in e-bikes around this time of year. So we’d like to share some information on our two best-selling models if you’re looking for inspiration.

I bought my bike, the Axcess Eriskay the first week in Jan 2018. I was well looked after by Peter, I knew what I was buying as the previous year I had bought my wife an Axcess Camargue and so I didnt have a problem going back to the same shop to buy mine. Peter and his staff can not be any more helpful in my opinion. If you decide on a bike but want a few cosmetic changes, they are more than happy to oblige, my wife wanted different handlebars and a change of tyre type. Since buying my wifes bike I have also bought maps and pannier bags. I do not have a problem recommending this shop to anyone who requires an electric bike.
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 ..
