Last year, people travelled much less by public transport, filled their leisure time differently and the options for sports were rather limited. On the other hand, more and more people went out into nature, because shops, cinemas, restaurants and the like were closed. In addition, people had more money left over1 because, for example, many expensive holidays were cancelled. This left most people with enough money to afford a nice bike. This is why people are increasingly embracing pedelecs. For example, large-scale research by Multiscope2 has shown that an estimated 1.2 million e-bikes will have been sold by 2021. This is an incredible number compared to 2019, when the number was only 420,000.
