bringing truly low-cost powered transport and
an answer to the fitness challenges twenty-first century living.
The costs of running an electric bike
There are no worries with prices at the pumps.
Relatively cheap mains power and rechargeable
batteries, plus the rider’s energy contribution
to locomotion, means that the overall cost per
mile is only a fraction of conventional powered

Riding an electric bike brings all the outdoor
cycling enjoyment without the strain. Users can

contribution, to suit their preferences.
Electric Bikes - About town commuting
For the employee wanting to avoid arriving
at work in a sweat, the relatively effortless
experience of power assisted cycling is a
welcome relief. With speeds of up to 15mph* on
assisted power or motor, electric bikes can make
headway on town roads. Where congested
roads provide cycle lanes, the electric bike is “king of the road”.
Electric Bikes and fitness
At first glance, the electric bike appears to offer
less fitness potential compared with a standard
cycle. However, as the powered bike gives a

cycling that feels effortless, and then take exercise
on the return journey home.

One of the disadvantages of cycling is the
negotiation of hills. Electric bikes help take the
strain, creating a more effortless climb. The
improvement to individual performance that

can feel like a short-run.
In harmony with the environment
Where users aim to make the most of their
own energy, a broad range of gears is ideal,
reducing reliance on motor power to maintain
a reasonable pace or climb. Electric bikes help
users to get full use of their own cycling skills
and physical energy, while providing extra
energy whenever needed. PowaCycles are
ideal for modern living, in harmony with the
