Electric bikes, or e-bikes, are a bike with a boost!
Long popular in Europe, they are gaining momentum here in the states. E-bikes have a small, battery-powered electric motor that activates when you pedal and turns off when you coast.
You can also opt out of battery assist altogether. E-bikes allow workers to ditch the car and cycle to work (sweating optional). And can help those older or less fit because of the boost…
Although a healthy workout is still possible. The majority of e-bikes go for at least $1,000, although you can get a kit to retrofit a standard bike.
