Regardless of your age and reasons for cycling, this movement is an annual opportunity to convey how cycling can become a part of your everyday life, and how it can make amazing positive changes to your daily routine.

We’ve been celebrating National Bike Week for almost 100 years – it always has been and continues to highlight the wonderful benefits of cycling. Why not make 2018 the year to get out on your electric bike?

What are the benefits of cycling?

Whether you’d like to start commuting daily or taking the occasional cycling trip with friends, you shouldn’t take much persuading, after all, there are so many great reasons to start…

  • Become fitter
  • Improve your mental wellbeing
  • Reduce cancer and heart disease risk
  • Increase your energy levels
  • Help save the environment
  • No tax or insurance
  • No parking problems


This brings us to our area of expertise, the electric bike, which has all the benefits of a standard bicycle, plus more…

What is an electric bike?

Quite simply, a bicycle with the addition of a battery-powered motor to assist your riding. You can cycle up to the speed of 15 mph, all while beating traffic. E-bikes do everything that a regular bicycle does, but they can also:

  • Help you with pedalling
  • Stop you from sweating due to the electrical assistance
  • Offer the perfect alternative to public transport or driving


They’ll make your trip easier. It’s quite that simple. Now is the perfect time to find out more about e-bikes, considering they’re changing the future of travel. There are many myths surrounding electric bikes, but the simple facts are these; there are health benefits. This might surprise you, but with the choice of how much or little assistance you’d like, you can cycle for longer distances. You will naturally introduce moderate exercise into your everyday life, you will be able to tackle steep inclines and most importantly, you’ll have fun!

What’s more, electric bikes suit a very wide audience, from those who are heading into their 60s to teenage students and people with disabilities.

What can you do to celebrate?

National bike week is a seven-day event that gives people the chance to exercise in a fun, sociable way. Professional cyclists, celebrities and regular folk come together to choose cycling as their primary transportation for the week.


There’s no better way to explore the wonders of your favourite place than on a bicycle. Why not check out some our Sustrans cycle maps, and our favourite summer bike trails of the South West?

We found everyone at Axcess Electric Bikes extremely helpful. We chose a Raleigh Captus Crossbar and was able to test ride it before buying it and they even delivered it the same day! The electric bike is so easy to use and as we live at the top of a hill we don't have to worry about getting home after a long ride! We can't recommend them highly enough.
Excellent! what a difference its made to my life. No more having to phone for a taxi to take me into Honiton. I now just get on my bike and I'm in the centre of town in 10 minutes. My only quetion is....why didn't I get one earlier!
It is great for hilly places which is where I live. What I like is the fact that I can pedal if I want, then if a hill is steep I can turn the motor up. It's great when I cycle with younger fitter friends it means I can keep up.
