AUSTIN, Texas, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Promoting bikes as a clean and green solution for commuting has long been a goal of the eco-friendly commuter. But who wants to go into work after breaking a sweat on a bike? Well, how about equipping it with the electric motor that will allow you to glide your way to work -- without using a drop of gas and never getting close to that sweat you fear?
R Martin delivers an electric bike that does just this at a fraction of the cost of your gas-guzzling automobile.
"As an environmentally conscious citizen, I've been riding my electric bike for years to work now; the ease with which I can move to work and around town plus the fact that I'm saving money on gas really does it for me," says engineer Graham Jones.
"Graham has been a customer for many years and uses his electric bike as his primary transportation," says Randall Schleier, Sales Manager with R Martin. People like Graham don't like wasting gas. "Now that we see the devastation that spilled oil can cause, it's a good time to think about alternative transportation," continues Randall.
The reasons why people choose electric bikes as their primary means of transportation are clear. Electric bikes effectively double or triple the useful travel range of the average bicycle rider; people that want to bike to work or school are often discouraged by the distance they would have to ride. Many others do not want to get overheated before going into the office; a daunting ride on a traditional bicycle becomes almost effortless on a pedal-assist electric bike. Electric bikes help promote cycling as a viable mode of alternative transportation and encourage people to bike to places they would normally drive.
Electric bicycles are also a perfect complement to public transportation. Commuters can take their electric bikes on the train or bus, providing an easy method of getting to their office or for shopping without the long walk.
Electric bicycles are not classified as motor vehicles and therefore require no license or insurance to operate. By combining high-quality lithium batteries and a high-efficiency motor, R Martin bikes can travel 30 or more miles per charge with little or no pedaling. (The specially designed R Series motor is particularly powerful in its drive.) This makes them a popular choice for short urban commuting trips without the expense and hassle of traditional gas-powered transportation ... and, no gas or oil!
