Riding a bike is a tremendous experience- whether you are passionate about leisurely pedaling, intense rides, or shredding single tracks, cycling is one of the best ways to stay fit without getting bored. Best of all, sharing the road with a loved one or family member can mean great bonding adventures to beautiful locations - but if you’re at different fitness levels than one another, it can sometimes mean a bumpy road.
Cycling With A Partner
In many cases, there are plenty of disparities between couples when it comes to cycling. Things like experience, strength, stamina etc play a key role in cycling and if your riding partner lacks these traits, they can have a hard time keeping up with you and the hills. This could make your trip quite uncomfortable and ruin the experience. A great way to ensure this doesn’t happen is with electric bikes.
eBikes -the Ultimate Solution
If you are the quicker, much fitter partner, pushing the pace is quite easy and sometimes you may even do it without realizing it. However, if you want to make sure that your partner can keep up the pace with you, opting for an eBike would be a great idea. Let’s discuss some of the benefits of replacing your regular bike with an eBike.
Your Partner can Ride Without any Pressure
As mentioned, matching the fitter partner’s pace can be quite exhausting and can lead to frustration. It can also add a lot of mental pressure, taking all the fun away from the experience. By choosing an eBike for yourself and your significant other, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that your partner won’t feel any pressure and will be able to keep up with you on the steep hills and long flat stretches no matter where you go or how fast you are cycling.
No More Scares
Cycling can be full of scares if you are inexperienced on the road. Sure, you may know how to balance your cycle but that is not enough – you also need to be road savvy and know how and when to brake and turn. While these things may seem quite simple, they can feel overwhelmingly difficult to those who are new. Instead of pressuring your partner to improve their fitness and cycling skills, it would be better to get an eBike so they can uplevel their skills at their own pace and still keep up with the group.
The Motor Does all the Work
With eBikes, you do not have to worry about things like disparity in fitness levels. Instead, the motor does all the work when you need it to, letting you and your significant other roam around freely. Pedal when you want to and use assistance when you don’t.
A Helpful Frame
Just as people come in all shapes and sizes, so do electric bikes. For those who have mobility issues or are shorter, a step-through frame, similar to that on the Espin Nesta or Flow, can be a much more comfortable ride as one can mount and dismount it easier than a regular frame, without having to lift your leg so high to ride.
Keeping Up Just Got a Whole Lot Easier
With the help of e-bikes, you can do more than just keep up no matter where you go. No more worrying about head starts or pedaling fast. These e-bikes can help you travel, stay fit, run errands and do whatever you please without being dependent on others and while improving your fitness levels. It is a far better alternative compared to regular cycles for those who are on a fitness journey and may be working to increase their abilities, or who just want to enjoy the ride.
