Is It Worth Buying an E-bike for a 10-Minute Daily Commute?October 5, 2022
Let’s face it, 10 minutes is not a lot of time at all and if that is your small daily commute I would consider yourself very lucky indeed. So is it really worth buying an e-bike for this short amount of time spent in a car or on public transport? Today we will list a handful of reasons why it is and after reading it you might want to pop to our online shop and grab yourself one…
It goes without saying that even a small commute costs money and it’s not just about the petrol costs. There is parking, insurance, check-ups, road tax and everything else you might need to run a car. We have already covered how much you might save on an e-bike, but it is still a good reason to swap to one even for a small commute.
It’s Not Just the Commute
Owning an e-bike doesn’t mean you are limited to that daily commute, by getting an E-Mountian bike you could be going for rides on the weekend as well! Maybe even do a little off-roading on the way to work via that shortcut, or just enjoy going out for rides and not feeling too knackered when you get home. Simply owning an e-bike makes you much more likely to be out riding it just for the fun of doing so. Talking of fun…
Maybe it is the joy of cruising past other cyclists, or zipping in and out of traffic or just riding along without breaking into a sweat, there is a joy to be had riding an e-bike that no car can replicate.
It Will Be Quicker
If your commute is short, but you spend a good while sitting in traffic on the same streets and roundabouts every day you could well notice just how much quicker your commute will be with an e-bike. No more waiting in traffic, those bike lanes taking you straight to your destination, that ten-minute commute could well become a 5-minute enjoyable e-bike ride!
You Will Get Exercise
The last good reason to buy an e-bike for a short commute has to be that you will get some exercise out of it. Sure, it’s not as much as a normal bike, but you will get some and even more if you start riding it more! I didn’t think I would get half as much exercise as I do, but I really do and the more I ride it, the more I appreciate it.
Well, we do hope this article has given you a few ideas about whether or not to get one for the daily commute. Even if you hire one for a short while you will soon realise the joys and indeed the benefits of owning one.
