We're Halfway Into National Bike Month!
Posted by Yasmeen Rustom on
May is National Bike Month in the United States. With a combination of more cities focusing on walkability/bikeability - and with gas prices increasing at an alarming rate - owning an electric trike has never been more appealing.
But for those who never considered switching to a tricycle before, it may be time to take a second look. And that’s because with the invention and subsequent skyrocketing in popularity of electric trikes, switching from an expensive and polluting car to an economical and efficient three-wheeled alternative is easier than ever. In fact, it seems that many go nearly everywhere by bike/trike. Here's why.
Speed and Convenience
Electric Trikes are a practical alternative to cars.For people who are commuting every day, heavy traffic is one of their dilemmas. With this, some scramble on their feet to find a quicker and hassle-free way to go out and about. In this regard, it has been proven many times that an electric bike or an electric trike can be an alternative to a car.
Worried about speed? Most of our Electric Trike Bikes range anywhere from 18-26 MPH and can get you from point A point B in no time!
Electric trike bikes help you get active, improve your lifestyle, and promote fitness. It is a known fact that in order to live a healthier life, one must become more physically active. Riding an electric trike bike regularly can help you in achieving that, as it provides ample exercise that your body needs. It is one of the best ways to reduce health risks and to get you moving towards a more active lifestyle.
Generally speaking, it's easy to validate an electric trike purchase - especially if you plan to hop on most days for fitness or commuting purposes!
One of the most popular benefits of an electric trike is how it can shorten the length of your travel due to its pedal assist motor. Not only that, an adult electric trike’s ability to stop and start quickly makes it perfect for riding in cities where you would usually have to stop and go at intersections and traffic lights. It is also swift enough to make tight turns maneuverable compared to cars.
On the economical side of things, e-trikes have a lot to offer. One of the most prominent benefits is that you save a lot from gas money. As the cost of gas rises left and right, many are looking for alternate ways to get around town/run errands.
Adding this, a few safety gears that will definitely last you for years, and low-maintenance costs, an electric trike bike is a one-time practical purchase that you surely won’t regret.
