  • 2. Let�s face it cycling is fun when it�s flat, and it�s even betterwhen its downhill, but hills can really be a chore and for most people theyare also off putting For some the thought of going out for a ride anddreading that climb that makes them get off their bike will be enough toput them of starting their ride in the first place With an electric bike youdon�t have that fear, everything becomes so much more fun! I defyanyone that hasn�t tried an electric bike before not to get on it andstart smiling instantly

Look,I�m not saying that UK has the best weather in the world, there arealways going to be days when you would prefer to use the car instead ofyour eBike, but what�s stopping you for 90% of the year? 3 �FitnessElectric bikes don�t do all the work, they just make the hard bits easier
