LONDON, August 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Long gone are the days of cycling to work and arriving drenched in sweat with a suit crumpled up in your rucksack. Thousands of commuters are now enjoying an easy and comfortable ride to work with pedal assist electric bikes.
Available from 50cycles, the groundbreaking Kalkhoff Impulse system allows electric bike users to cruise along with very little effort; making the ride to work a breeze, particularly through bustling cities and busy town centers.
Scott Snaith, owner of 50cycles says they have seen a dramatic increase in sales recently. People choosing to buy a bike instead of a second car, and those living in cities deciding to shun cramped public transport in favour of a far more pleasant journey by bike.
Electric bikes feature a powerful motor which works with your pedaling meaning you can travel at much higher speeds for longer. Although they're limited to 15mph (to avoid road tax), this is still much faster than the average speed of a vehicle within a city. On top of this, bicycles are free to chop and change between main roads, cycle paths and other short cuts meaning the route to and from work can be quicker and far less stressful than driving.
Electric bikes also have another major benefit, namely the ability to accelerate away from traffic lights at the touch of a button. This means the stop-start of a city commute is far less dangerous as you can pull away at the same speed as surrounding traffic and avoid those precarious situations with large lorries and buses.
What's more, electric bikes can generate huge savings - a single charge will cost pennies and MOTs, insurance, maintenance and road tax are a thing of the past. The 50cycles electric bike will allow you to get one step ahead of the masses, defying late trains or the stranglehold of a central London traffic jam to reach your destination on time, the must-have piece of kit in any commuter's briefcase this year.
