First, the most important distinction to make is that e-bikes are pedal cycles, not motorbikes. There is no throttle. You must pedal. The motor simply tops up your effort and that’s the key point, you must try and any effort is exercise. How much effort you make is up to you. You can ride the bike with no assistance or use its maximum assistance to get up a steep hill you would never be able to do under your own steam. And that’s key too. Even riding with the assistance on full on a flat road to make it as easy as possible, it will get you to 15.5mph and then you are under your own steam. If you slow down the assistance will kick back in, but you’ve tried and had some exercise in between. No matter where you ride or how long you ride, this principle is the same. On every ride you will get some moderate exercise. Fact.

On Thursday 28 September, The Electric Bike Shop in Uckfield invite you to come to the store and meet the team. You can also take a bike for a ride and see how great fun they are. You can visit us any time, but the store will be open until 7pm on that day so you can pop in after work.

If you have a bike and want a free safety check then do ride on down and we can take a look. On the day we will also offer 10% discount on any full RRP bikes and 10% off any accessories.

There are many health benefits as well as cost and environmental. How far is it to work for you? You could save a good deal of money by riding. Your employer could take part in one of many tax-free incentives. Between 4pm and 7pm we will have Mark Brown, sales director from gogeta in store so if you want to understand it better as an employer or employee then came and meet him. But remember its not all about riding to work. There is so much fun to be had on any electric bike and you can use a cycle voucher on any bike.
