Wouldn’t it be nice if we could ease our own commutes and reduce carbon emissions at the same time? A shift toward more environmentally friendly commuting is an obvious win-win, but how can we do it? For the best reasons you should make the switch to green transportation, see this article.
Riding a bike to work is one of my favorite things to do- but there’s only one problem- riding a bike takes quite a bit of work, and the last thing anyone wants to do is show up before their shift looking sweaty! With E-Bikes being able to assist riders and make you do less work pedaling, you can still cruise to work without risking those lethal sweat stains.
Carpooling has become a staple of American commuting- it’s good for the environment by lowering carbon emissions, and it lets co-workers gab about the day ahead! But for an even eco-friendlier experience, e-biking is a great alternative to carpooling to start the day off right. With the gears of an e-bike allowing individuals to control how much assistance they get, co-workers of different speeds will be able to bike at the same pace together- which is just like carpooling, only more fun!
The average American spends nearly 12 hours in a sitting position every single day- and being so sedentary on a regular basis can have real negative effects on someone’s mental and physical health. Fresh air and active movement is great for your mind and body- especially if you work a nine hour desk job! Riding an e-bike to work instead of driving will make you feel relaxed, refreshed, and ready for the day ahead.
There’s often quite a disparity between riding a bike to work versus driving- biking feels better for the body and is better for the environment, but a car is significantly faster and requires less effort. Thankfully, an e-bike serves as a happy medium to both of these options, offering the environmental benefits of a bike with the high speed availability of a car (an e-bike does not go as fast as a car, but can go significantly faster than a traditional bike!)
The average American spends approximately $250 on gas per month- that’s around $3000 per year! A large part of that gas bill is coming from the gas it takes to get to and from work, which ends up straight in the Earth’s atmosphere. With an e-bike, not only are you cutting back on your gas bill and saving money, but with less emissions coming from your car, you’re helping the environment in a major way!
To close out this list, I felt it was appropriate to bring up the best reason you should consider an e-bike as your means of commute- it’s a great time! It allows you a high speed, low effort ride that’s great for the environment- there’s no better way to turn your commute into something you look forward to every morning than by buying an e-bike!Make sure you kit out your electric bike with WingLights 360 position and indicator lights. The 360º visibility from the white/red position lights highlight your position in the road and the bright amber flashing indicator light that can be activated with your pinky finger makes your direction intentions clear to other road users.
