Biking has really boomed during the pandemic, both for daily commuter use as people face problems with public transportation, and as one of the few allowable socially distanced leisure activities you can do outdoors. However, with the sizzling summer heat, daily commuters and employees who rely on pure pedal power to get to and from work may find biking regularly too tiring.
Buying a scooter or motorcycle may not be an option for some people because of the added expense and the hassles of having to get a driver’s license, yearly registration requirements, and fuel costs.
For those looking for a more sustainable option for mobility, electric bicycles or e-bikes combine the joys of and eco-friendliness of traditional biking, with the perks of additional support and speed.
