We’re big fans of electric bikes on Coach and can still remember the pleasant surprise we had when we first rode one, quickly followed by the thought that we could get used to this. While we could wax lyrical for many more words, nothing beats trying it yourself. If you’re thinking of getting an e-bike but aren’t sure what to go for, or even if you’ve just heard about them and want to find out what the fuss is all about, you can get saddle time on plenty of models on a traffic-free track at the Cycling Electric Demo Day (opens in new tab) on Saturday 4th July at the Lee Valley VeloPark in London.
Cycling Electric (opens in new tab) is a new magazine from the publishers of Coach. It goes on sale 29th April, will cost £5.99 and will be a vital resource for anyone thinking of buying an e-bike for work or leisure. (Side note: You should definitely consider buying one to get you to work because e-bikes can be bought through Cycle To Work schemes, saving you somewhere between 25% and 39%.)
Either way, the benefits are the same for commuters, road cyclists, bikepackers and mountain bikers alike – e-bikes offer an environmentally friendly way to get around that’s far easier on the legs. Whether you’re already an e-bike enthusiast or thinking of buying one for the very first time, you’ll leave this event with a better idea of what’s available and what will suit you.
