Environmentalists Push Electric Bike as a Commuting Option

The world has never been more aware of an individual’s impact on the environment than today. There is constant talk about carbon footprints, mega-fires, declining planetary health, and the disastrous results of climate change, pushing for solutions to improve the situation. A straightforward way to reduce carbon emissions is to change how people travel to and from the workplace.

The last year and a half saw a drastic reduction in emissions because a large percentage of the population had to stay home for extended periods. One work-at-home bonus most people can agree on is no longer having to commute to and from work each day. It’s changed the way a lot of people look at how they want to go forward.

For some, working from home now that things are beginning to open back up isn’t an option, but they also aren’t interested in going back to the same old grid-lock style commute. One alternative available and affordable is the modernized electronic bike. E-bikes allow people to travel farther and faster than a typical bicycle but still qualify for most cycling lanes.

“Electronic bikes, now more commonly known as e-bikes, have actually been around for a really long time, dating back to the late 1800s, but they didn’t gain any kind of popularity until the 1990s. Even then, they weren’t something most people could but, that’s happened over the last ten years really, that people are starting to see the massive benefits this mode of transportation offers.” Said a spokesperson for Epic Cycles.

E-bikes have advanced over the last few years and now have a much better range than earlier models. The BlueRev Miami Vice model, for example, has a broad range of 40-50 KM. This distance increase means that a single charge is enough for some commuters to get to work and back.

“There’s a pretty big increase in people interested in commuting this way. Customers are becoming more aware of the impact they make on the environment, maybe in part because there was such a decrease during the lockdowns.” The spokesperson added.

E-bikes provide an opportunity to drastically reduce a person’s fossil fuel consumption, no longer releasing harmful chemicals into the environment. Another benefit is that e-bikes are produced with batteries that are easily recycled, reducing trash. There are also the added health benefits of cycling to work because even though these bikes have the added electric boost, they are still bicycles.
