Why it’s a fantastic time to own an electric bicycle!

Electric bicycles have always been a fantastic way to get around, but there have never been as many good reasons to ride an electric bicycle as there are now. Here are a few of them!

Rising Fuel Prices

Big on the news recently are the Saudi Arabian oil field drone attacks, causing the world’s largest oil refinery to shut down. They produce roughly 5% of the world’s oil, making it a huge hit to the global oil supply and an international catastrophe. What does this mean for us here in Australia? Short supply is going to make fuel prices rise.

Even before the drone attacks, fuel prices haven’t been looking too good. With the US-China trade war, the weak Australian Dollar and the state of the oil industry, Australian fuel prices have been on a steady rise.

Electric bicycles, on the other hand, require no fuel – just electricity, which is much cheaper. Being able to stay on the go without breaking the bank is just one of the many perks of owning an electric bicycle.

Do your bit for the environment

Electric bicycles are an eco-friendly option: they don’t consume fossil fuels and spit out carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. In an age where the issue of climate change is becoming more and more prevalent and society is scrambling to find ways to curb our carbon footprints, it’s easy to get ahead of the curve by just using your electric bicycle instead of your car when you can. The average car spits out about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide a year, so just doing that makes a huge contribution!

And really, there aren’t any downsides to just riding your electric bicycle around anyway…
