Why get an electric bicycle?

Compared to conventional bicycles, electric bicycles make it easier to:

  • travel longer distances;
  • travel over difficult terrain; and
  • carry cargo.

Electric bicycles can help you be active while moving around your community. Electric bicycles are also cheaper to buy and operate than a vehicle for local transportation and commuting.
