Why buy an eBike
An electric-charged, battery-powered eBike is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Just one electric bicycle represents a reduction of about 968 pounds of carbon dioxide. And when you charge it up with Green Mountain Power’s 90% carbon free/60% renewable power, you are being even more socially responsible. GMP is creating reliable, clean and cost-effective power through an energy system that is becoming more resilient in the face of climate change. Through this program, GMP wants to help you to do your part to fight global warming.
Who benefits from an electric bicycle
E-Bikes still require you to pedal the bike, if you don’t pedal, you won’t go anywhere. It is not like an old gas-powered moped, that did not require pedaling once it was started. The lightweight electric motor just gives you an assist when needed. With an electric bike you can go farther, or faster making your daily commute or errands around town both easier and greener! E-Bikes have unlimited potential for many riders. E-Bikes are ideal for:
- Commuting. Don’t bother rearranging the family cars in the driveway to get yours out to go to work. Hop on your eBike and zip to work with ease. Not only will you get to work without the stress of sitting in traffic, but you will also get your daily workout in too! Multi-tasking at it’s best. Now you have more time after work to spend with your family or out in the yard.
- Fitness. A common misconception about eBikes is that you don’t have to pedal. The reality is, if you don’t pedal, you don’t go anywhere. You can choose to ride the bike without assistance or adjust the amount of assistance you need based on the terrain or distance you are riding.
- Recovering from injury. An eBike can be key for someone recovering from an injury. If you have a leg, knee or other injury that has reduced your strength or range of motion an electric bicycle can give you the assistance you need to recover sooner with very little stress on your body.
- Riding with others of different ability levels. If riding with your spouse or friends is not as fun as it should be because you or your spouse rides at a different speed than the rest of the group, an eBike will allow you to enjoy riding together at a similar pace.
- Extending your range. Looking to extend the range of your typical ride? An eBike can help extend the range of your rides by giving you the confidence and assist to make it happen. It can take your 15 mile ride to a 30 mile ride with comfort and ease because you know you’ve got the power assist to use if and when it’s needed.
