Why choose an electric bike?
Electric Bikes Australia
Electric bikes are a new and promising alternative form of urban
transportation. They provide all the advantages of a regular
bicycle: fun exercise, free parking, zero emissions, and freedom
from gridlock, while eliminating one of the bicycle's more serious
drawbacks, lack of power. Imagine pedaling up a hill as
comfortably as riding down, that's what the e-bike experience is all
about. In most situations in the city, riding an electric bike will be
faster and cheaper than either car or public transit.
Ten good reasons to use an electric bike…
An electric bike can maintain a higher average
speed than a bicycle, yet take advantage of the full
network of cycle facilities, giving access to routes that
cars and motorcycles cannot reach. The result is often a
Faster door-to-door journey time than any other mode.
And by nipping along the relatively uncongested cycle
network, but eliminating hills and headwinds, electric
bikes tend to be the most consistent mode of travel.
Sweat may not be a serious issue when you’re out for a leisure
ride, but it’s more important if you’re cycling to work, and
arriving at work sticky puts a lot of people off cycling. Oddly
enough, you won’t sweat on an electric bike, even if you put in the
same amount of effort as you do on an ordinary bike. This is a
matter of physics as well as exertion – higher road speed and
greater air flow mean instant sweat evaporation. In hot weather,
it’s possible to maintain a normal schedule by transferring a bit
more load to the electric motor. In colder weather – or if you feel
in need of exercise – just throttle back, or turn the motor off.
It sounds unlikely, doesn’t it? But the mathematics is
compelling. Think of a steep and busy road, with cars
climbing at 30mph. If you previously slogged up the hill
At 6mph, but can tackle the same gradient at 12mph
with an electric bike, you will see 33% fewer cars, and
they will pass you at 18mph rather than 24mph. Or at
least, we think that’s correct. Whatever the figures,
there’s no doubt that an electric bike helps to keep you
out of danger. The same general principle applies to
road junctions and roundabouts – the faster your
acceleration, the sooner you can get out of trouble.
That may sound obvious, but it’s the primary advantage. A good
electric bike effectively flattens hills, increasing your average speed
and eliminating the ‘groan’ factor when a gradient comes into view.
Provided you supply a reasonable amount of effort, you can expect
to climb hills of 1:10 (10%) on an electric bike with ease, and clear
a maximum gradient of 1:7 (14%), or even 1:4 (25%) with the right
bike. In hilly country, the effect is nothing short of miraculous.
Purchase cost is a little more than a conventional
bike, mechanical wear and tear is about the
same, and electricity is so cheap as to be largely
irrelevant, but there is an extra expense in terms
of battery depreciation. Consequently, an electric
bike costs more to run – typically 8 – 12 pence per
mile against 3 – 7 pence per mile for a non-assisted
bike.. However, electric bike running costs should
really be compared with those of a moped, car, or
public transport, typically 20-40p per mile by bus, 20-
60p by train and 30-150p for a small car.
Electric bikes are bicycles in the eyes of the law, so
they require no tax, insurance, MoT or license. You can
ride one while disqualified, or after a couple of pints…
at your own risk, of course. You CAN get into trouble,
but nothing you do will affect your driving license
providing the bike is within the law. You are of course
free to insure the machine if you wish, but there’s no
compulsion to do anything but enjoy yourself!
Surely a conventional bike will keep you fitter? That, of
course, depends how much – if at all – you use it.
Research has found that 46% of conventional bikes are
used only once or twice a week, with a further 30% being
used once a fortnight or even less. The figures confirm
our experience that an electric bike typically gets used at
Least twice as often as a conventional machine. Because
riding an electric bike is a great deal more enjoyable in
hilly country, into strong winds, or when carrying heavy
loads, users tend to make better use of them. The motor
provides up to half the effort, but more regular use
means more exercise for the rider.
Electric bikes are the most fuel efficient mode of transport in everyday use. Typical fuel consumption is 8-16 watt-hours per mile, or something like a tenth as much as a small motorcycle. In old money, that’s the equivalent of 800-2,000mpg.
This is a bit weird, but the evidence is very
compelling. Ride a normal bicycle and you will
have to top up with extra calories at Tescos.
Producing and transporting that food takes a lot
of energy, and it’s typically more than the electric
bike battery needs to do the same amount of
Work. Depending on the source of the electricity
and the air-miles of the food, an electric bike is
responsible for 5.8-13.7g/CO2 per mile, and a
normal bike 10.5-18.5/CO2 per mile .
At £400-£2,000, an electric bike costs more to
buy than a conventional machine, but
they tend to hold their value, so you get more of
Your money back when you move on.
