Re: “The inconvenient truth about Ebikes

Electric Bicycles are quickly becoming the vehicle of choice for folks who are discovering the health benefits of bicycling while helping to reduce the environmental impact of our existing transportation system.

Electric bicycles are as safe, stable and sturdy as traditional bicycles and move at bike-like speeds. As a new, innovative and clean-technology transportation option, their use in the U.S. and other countries has brought the pleasure and freedom of bicycling to millions with no compromise in consumer safety.

Communities across the country face transportation challenges related to traffic congestion, local air quality, climate change, obesity and lack of physical inactivity. Encouraging alternative modes of transportation, such as bicycling, can help address these challenges.

Increases to quality of life: Electric bicycles make riding a bicycle for commuting and transportation easier and faster, allow current bicycle users to bike more often and farther and promote alternative transportation for people who cant afford the high cost of car ownership.

Increases to bicycle ridership: Electric bicycles provide a new option for people who want to bicycle but would otherwise not because of physical fitness, age, disability or convenience, especially at high altitude and for those whose work commutes are within the 5-20 mile range and who traditionally drive.

Environmental benefits: Electric bicycles reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel consumption, improve air quality and support alternative modes of transportation.

Everyday utility: Electric bicycles can carry up to 400 lbs. of cargo and can be equipped with built-in hauling features, specialty baskets, versatile racks, carrying bags and other accessories to accomplish many daily commuting activities.

Benefits to public infrastructure and safety: Electric bicycles decrease traffic congestion, increase road safety with more cyclists on the road and reduce demand for parking spaces.

Economic benefits: Electric bicycles benefit small business owners by providing a cost-effective alternative to cars and trucks when used for equipment transport and deliveries.
