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.

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
