There are so many reasons to exchange your gas-guzzling vehicle for an eBike.
The city of Portland is committed to sustainable transportation, and if you’re ready to give up your car, truck or SUV for a more sustainable option, you’ve come to the right place. We’re The eBike Store, and we’re proud to be Portland’s very first all-motorized bike shop. With the best eBikes for sale and for rent from the top brands, including Benno and OneWheel, we have the perfect eBike for your needs. Here are just five of the many reasons to start commuting with an eBike:
#1. Save Money
Let’s face it, owning a car is expensive. Not only are you responsible for the car payments, but you have to also consider maintenance costs, insurance and fuel. After your initial investment in an eBike, the costs of upkeep and continued use are very, very low.
#2. Avoid Pesky Traffic
Traffic isn’t just frustrating; it’s bad for your health. Studies have linked traffic to mental health problems, like aggression and stress. If you find yourself frustrated and angry when you get to work due to the traffic, it’s time to consider commuting with an eBike. Instead of getting a whiff of the exhaust from the car in front of you, commuting with an eBike allows you to enjoy sunshine and fresh air!
#3. Do Your Part for Mother Nature
Our vehicles are some of the biggest carbon emitters, and reducing or eliminating your time in the car is one of the best ways to reduce your environmental impact. Luckily, with an eBike, you’ll still be able to get around just as well, but you won’t have to think twice about your impact on the environment.
#4. Avoid Showing Up Sweaty
Riding a traditional bike is much preferable to driving, but there’s a big downside — it’s a lot more work. If you’re cycling to get a great workout, getting sweaty is in the cards, but if you’re commuting to work, showing up sweaty and disheveled is not exactly ideal. Luckily, an eBike can help you save energy and face because the motor will take over for you when you need it to.
#5. Enjoy Your Time
Even those who like to drive aren’t thrilled about a time-consuming commute to work. Instead of sitting in traffic and yelling at the driver in front of you for not putting their blinker on or cutting you off, you’ll get to enjoy a nice, leisurely commute on your eBike. With an eBike, the time you spend commuting to work will no longer be a drag; instead, you’ll look forward to it every day!
