Battery Bikes - What is a Battery Bike and Why Would I Buy One Battery bikes or as they are variously known electric bikes e-bikes or battery powered bicycles are becoming more popular and more common place. At the beginning of this style of transport the choice was limited and the design seemed rather old fashioned but not anymore Technology has moved on very quickly and with advances in battery manufacture power packs are now lighter and give a greater distance and frame design is much more stylish.

Limited by UK EU law to 200W/250W motors and with an assisted top speed of 15mph the motive of a battery bike is that its assistance ultimately reduces the cycling effort and increases the usable range of the bicycle concept. Battery Bikes are classed as bicycles though do not attract road excise duty in the way that mopeds would do and of course they can make use of the ever increasing national network of quality cycle paths and routes. Battery Bike - Whos it for The battery bike concept has a wide market appeal to different people of all different ages. The motorised assistance expands the usable range of the bicycle as a mode of transport and makes daily commuting much easier. It has health and fitness benefits since the rider is still more active than they would otherwise be if sat in a car and if the concept makes the thought of cycling more appealing then it will be used more regularly than a normal bike.

One problem that most of us face as we get older is that as our fitness diminishes through age or inactivity the sheer thought of sustained hard effort can be enough to put us off. Even if we do venture out on a push-bike as soon as a head-wind or a hill is encountered and our speed drops to a crawling pace our thoughts can all too easily drift back to the comforts and convenience of the motor car. Its an irony to think that although wed all benefit from regular exercise it is most hard to maintain the impetus to get into the routine at the very beginning because our bodies complain so much during the early stages of any regime.
