An Electric Bicycle! What’s That?

I have never been one to go to the gym, but I also know it’s important to maintain a healthy weight and a strong, flexible body now that I am in my fifties. Staying active will help me to maintain a quality lifestyle for many years to come.

Most of the latest electric cars can do about 85 miles an hour. But, for a range of only about 90 miles and an eight-hour recharge. One lap at the Isle of Man TT and an electric bike is flat! How could you watch that? How could you even justify the action of pulling on a pair of leather motorcycle gloves to do that? The sight of a racing bike leaning into a sweeper without the characteristic sound of accelerating internal combustion power is completely incomprehensible. Sacrilege even! No, only when something better is invented, is it time to develop serious bikes and cars.

You need to recharge the battery daily or very often and it always takes several hours for the battery to recharge fully. So before going somewhere, you should firstly make sure that the battery is full charged or you will have to pedal it.

The common bicycle is good enough to provide you with two wheels that can get you anywhere. But, as you get tired, you will feel the fatigue and the need to slow down. This is just one reason why an electric counterpart is a better choice. If you want to go from one place to the next, you want continuous speed without tiring your legs.

Rear Basket/Rack: The 3640 system comes with a bike rack to hold the pannier bag, controller and batteries. The larger 4840 system comes with a rear basket to hold the pannier bag, controller and batteries.

I know my limits, and have reasonable expectations for myself. When I bought an electric bicycle, it was really to keep up with my husband. He is a lot more athletic than I am, and I was always afraid that I would not be able to keep up on a longer bicycle trip or going up hills. My bicicleta elétrica mountain bike changed all that.

For hilly and uneven terrain, electric bikes are no the perfect choice. It is always best to get a mountain bike if you prefer to go to places with varied terrain. But for those shortcuts and unchartered roads, it is better to use an electric counterpart. You may also carry your bike if you wish to ride a bus or the subway. However, you may find it heavier because of the battery attached.

There is always something that could be better. One thing that I think could be an issue is the weight of the bike. This can be a problem if you are older or disabled. The weight is however also something positive as the bike feels quite steady when driving. If you find this to be a problem, you could try to look for another more light weight battery pack. The battery pack is actually removable which is good.
