Since the Corona crisis, the electric bike popular than ever, so we would like to list all the benefits for you.
By 2021, it is estimated that as many as 1.2 million electric bikes will have been sold.
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 money1because, for example, many expensive holidays were cancelled. This left most people with enough money to afford a nice bike. As a result, people are increasingly embracing the electric bike. Large-scale research by Multiscope has shown that2 showed that by 2021, an estimated 1.2 million e-bikes will have been sold. This is an incredible number compared to 2019, when the number was only 420,000.
From the above figures, we can conclude that the pedelec is more popular than ever and this makes both your body and the environment very happy. Buying a pedelec has some great advantages; it improves your health and reduces your ecological footprint at the same time. For example, one kilometre travelled on an e-bike is 30 times cleaner than one kilometre travelled by car. In addition, on an e-bike you burn an average of 200 to 300 calories per hour and you reduce your absenteeism from an average of eight days to seven days in the year. You can also use the e-bike for commuting. You will never be late for work again, because you can simply avoid those hours-long traffic jams.
All in all, a lot of advantages for using your e-bike more often.
