Best electric bikes for commuting

Electric bikes are fast becoming one of the most popular methods of commuting for people across the UK. With so many benefits, it is clear to see why:

Cycle to work scheme - one of the main reasons why using an electric bike to commute is so popular. You can make the most of the scheme that allows you to save up to 47% on the price of an e-bike and pay it off across 12-48 months.

Better for the environment - you could lower your carbon footprint significantly by swapping to an electric bike. You’ll feel better knowing you aren’t contributing to the air and noise pollution and increased congestion.

Save money - compared with driving a car and public transport, e-bikes can save you a considerable amount of money. Fuel, MOT, tax, insurance, maintenance and parking of a car can really add up and the same goes for the costs of using public transport.

Improve your health - Instead of spending countless hours stuck on public transport or in your car, instead be outside, getting fitter by riding your e-bike. You burn around 400-450 calories per hour you ride and not to mention all of the other health and mental benefits this will give you.
