The beauty of Electric Bikes.

Electric wheels are the newest and most exciting trend, taking the cycling world by storm.
A very unobtrusive motor, powered by battery is installed by the rear wheel of bikes. It only works as you pedal, so this is no free ride but gives you as much (or little) assistance as you are after. A super cyclist you will be!

E-wheels make for the perfect solution, levelling the playing field and making everyone feel equal. It gives riders that would possibly exhaust themselves trying to keep up a sense of empowerment.

Researchers gave a group of out-of-shape men and women electric bikes to ride to work each day. A month later the riders were healthier with significantly greater aerobic fitness, better blood sugar control, and less body fat. Significantly, they all reported they had loved the experience and found it fun.
