2) Electric bikes make you fit(ter)
And the good news is that you don’t have to suffer for it! Of course you are benefitting from motorized assistance, but you still have to pedal. So you are definitely exercising on your e-MTB, even if you aren’t burning as many calories as you would on a regular bike. What many people often overlook, is that low-intensity exercise is essential to build your endurance base. Furthermore, e-bikes allow you to choose how much support you want or need. So you can always decide to challenge yourself a bit more by only using the eco-mode, or by trying to clear steeper and more technical climbs. And because you will love riding your e-bike so much, you’ll be out more often, making progress and getting fitter. It’s a virtuous circle!
3) Electric Bikes Take You Further
An unarguable fact about e-bikes is that they will allow you to cover more distance. So those places that seemed so far away are finally becoming accessible! You know, that discouraging feeling when you are planning a tour and figure out that by the time you get to the interesting part of your ride, you’ll already be exhausted by the access route? This feeling belongs to the past! And not only will you be able to ride further, but you will also do so faster. So no more frustration about having “only an hour” to ride, you can still hit that super fun loop fast!

4) Electric Bikes Can Boost Your Motivation and Improve your Skills
E-bikes can remove some of the mental barriers that sometimes undermine your motivation to go for a ride. With a range of support levels to play with, you can always adapt your ride depending on how you are feeling that day which means more riding days. Remember that you actually don’t HAVE TO suffer to “earn your turns”! Less mental barriers, more riding – more riding, better skills... and happy faces!
5) Electric Bikes are simply so much fun!
Did I already mention that bikes in general were all about having fun? Well, for all the reasons mentioned above, this is even truer with e-bikes. You’ll be able to ride with friends you couldn’t keep up with before, you’ll be getting fitter without spending hours suffering, you’ll be discovering new places, and you’ll be riding more often.
