Get active on your commute!

Active commuting is becoming increasingly popular in these strange times and eBikes are driving that change…

Active commuting is becoming increasingly popular in these strange times. The usual concerns include, “I don’t think I’m fit enough”, “I don’t want to be sweaty at work” or “what about when the weather gets bad?”.

An eBike – the perfect solution

An eBike could be the perfect solution!  With different modes of assistance, they can cater to all fitness levels and abilities. You can benefit from up to 320% assisted pedalling, making you commute to work effortless and not put a bead of sweat on you, meaning there is no worry if your workplace doesn’t have changing rooms or shower facilities. Due to the assisted pedalling you receive when riding an eBike it means you can put more clothes on and not over-heat, so on those rainy days you can wrap up warm and put your waterproofs on and get to work as dry as you would have been if you drove a car in. 

An active commute has multiple other benefits. The University of Edinburgh carried out a study,  that shows an active commute totalling 150 minutes per week, can achieve risk reductions in premature mortality of 10-11%. An active commute can also reduce risk factors for diseases such as cardiovascular disease, some cancers, and Type II diabetes.

Improving your health and environment

Switching from travelling by car to an active travel method can have a huge positive impact on your mental wellbeing. Making you more prepared to work and giving yourself time to clear your head at the end of a working day.

The transport sector is responsible for a third of all carbon dioxide emissions…

Stepping out of your car for your daily commute also has a positive environmental effect, the transport sector is responsible for a third of all carbon dioxide emissions. The UK has a target to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2050 and everyone needs to do their part to make this happen.
