But could it be the small drawbacks that are preventing the majority of people from making the switch to cycling from other modes of transport? This is where the electric bike comes in. It provides all of the benefits of a regular bicycle, but with the added bonus of not arriving at work needing a shower since it helps to reduce the effort of pedalling uphill and into headwinds. You can still take exercise which helps you on your way to fulfilling government health recommendations, you are still lowering your carbon footprint, and saving money.

Electric bikes have no road tax, no insurance, no MOT, and no license plates. They are limited to a maximum speed under power of 15mph. As long as your cycle is within these limits, and you are over 14, you can ride your bike legally on UK roads with no restrictions.

On top of these benefits, the electric bike compared to the traditional bicycle saves even more time because even though top speed is capped, electric bikes are able to keep a more constant speed, rather than slowing down on the tough or uphill stretches. This higher average speed actually makes electric bikes safer than conventional bicycles on the roads since fewer cars will overtake.
 
So electric bikes offer safety advantages over regular bicycles, save you more money on transport, are more user friendly; and still provide healthy exercise.
