Explore further and longer with an electric bike
E bikes have been gaining in popularity over the past few years for good reason. There are so many benefits especially if you need a little help going uphill. They are so easy to operate and make for a really relaxing riding experience.
If you 'used' to be a cyclist and are not sure about your confidence or stamina for riding anymore, e-bikes can be a way to get back out on the trails again to rediscover your cycling legs. And if you're a complete beginner, an e-bike could be the solution as a gentle introduction to cycling.
You won't have to worry about those daunting uphill stretches and you'll be able to stay out and about much longer than you ever dreamed.
