Benefits of Commuting to Work on an Electric Bike

  • No Sweat. Whether commuting to work or school, bicycle commuters have always had to worry about arriving hot and sweaty. On an electric bike, they can control their workouts and arrive at their destinations cool, energetic and ready to roar into action.
  • Zip Around Traffic. On an electric bike, riders can literally ride around traffic jams, often arriving at their destinations faster than they would in a car.
  • Rock Star Parking. Electric bike commuters leave parking hassles behind as they pull right up to the front door. Employees and college students who have paid high fees to circle the parking lot in their cars are no match for a rider who rockets past and arrives on time — and under budget.
  • Green Machine. Not only do electric bike commuters say good-bye to gas stations and traffic, they’re also doing their part to combat greenhouse emissions in the fight against global climate change.
  • Amazingly Affordable. With no DMV, no gas stations, no car insurance and no car payment, Pedego riders discover a huge savings at the end of every month — while loving the ride the entire time.
  • Exercise Disguised as Fun. Some riders like to use more motor on the way in to work to stay cool and then use less motor and more exercise on the way home. Electric cycling is a great workout, burning up to 500 calories per hour, and it works out your day’s frustrations and stresses.
  • Freedom to Explore. Electric bike riders can take the scenic route and see more of their communities than they would in a car. They’ll also travel farther and faster than they would on foot or traditional pedal bikes. There are amazing bike paths in most cities that take cyclists off the roads and along scenic routes.
