Video: The Benefits of Riding an Electric Bicycle

This is an older video, but the benefits they go over in the video summarize why electric bikes are a great alternative to driving a car!

There are a couple of things that I would like to point out in the video. This is an electric bike conversion kit that the Michael added to his existing bicycle. The kit might look a little “funky” because it is one of the older kits. Today’s conversion kits are a little cleaner.

He also states that he can go up to 35 mph. That speed is too high to be considered an electric bicycle in the US and other parts of the world. The speed limit in the U.S. and Canada is 20 mph and the speed limit in Europe and other parts of the world (with some exceptions) is 25 kmh or 15.5 mph.

Checkout the video below:

What do you think?  Did you like the points that were made in the video?  Do you currently ride an electric bike instead of driving a car for commuting and errand running?

    What about the safety on the road? It sounds scary to ride alongside cars. I do want to get an e bike but the safety of it made me rethink my choice. But yea there are places/road for bikes ONLY then I would consider biking a healthy/good choice over cars.
