If you’ve been thinking about buying an e-bike, now is the time to go ahead and finally get it!

COVID-19 has changed the way we are travelling, especially on our daily commute. Public transport and other modes of ridesharing are viewed as too risky. While you shelter at home, you’ve probably noticed that you don’t have to travel far to run errands or get fresh air. You’re also probably looking for alternative means of exercise now that the local gym is closed.

Why not consider an e-bike?

How an e-bike will help you:

Social distancing:

It has been recommended that we distance ourselves from others by at least 1.5m. Cycling is the perfect way to adhere to the social distancing guidelines, with your e-bike acting as your own personal barrier!

It’s great for all fitness levels, as it gets you out of the house for some sweat free exercise and a much-needed shot of endorphins.

Roads are less congested:

As most people are staying at home and avoiding unnecessary travel, the roads are clearer and more inviting to cyclists. There are also many cycling paths open that are great to ride your e-bike on.

Promotes health:

E-bikes are a form of moderate exercise, that you can do at your own pace. It’s also a good form of cardio exercise and allows you to build strength and endurance, strengthening your immune system. This makes it suitable for all ages. If you get tired, you can simply use more battery and cruise home. E-cycling also promotes mental health, as exercise is proven to boost it.

Save on your e-bike:

There are a wide range of e-bikes available for all price ranges. A novated lease on your e-bike will save you even more! By paying for your e-bike out of your pre-tax income, you will reduce your current taxable income, meaning you pay less tax!

E-cycling is becoming an increasingly popular trend with e-bike sales booming globally! Why don’t you join the trend? To take your ride to the next level, request a quote on your new e-bike now.
