Do you hear more and more about electric bikes around you? If so, it’s no coincidence. Indeed, the market for electric bicycles is growing (1) not only in Quebec, but also internationally. And for good reasons: electric bikes have many advantages over traditional bikes, such as saving time. Whether it’s commuting to work or running errands, find out how investing in an electric bike can save you valuable time.
Electric bikes allow you to save 63 hours of time per year
A study conducted in 2017 (2) showed that the median speed of electric bicycles was 23.1 km/h and 18.4 km/h for a traditional bicycle. Thus, trips by electric bike were on average 21% faster than by traditional bike. This amounts to 21% of time saved in transport during the year.
Take for instance that it takes you 30 minutes to drive to work and 45 minutes to return, with traffic. In total, it adds up to 1h15 of transport per day. It is also about 25 hours per month, and 300 hours per year! By investing in an electric bike, this figure drops to 237 hours per year. It’s 63 hours saved, almost two weeks of work freed up in your agenda. What would you do with all this new free time?
Not to mention that in addition to saving money, switching from a car to an electric bike also allows you to increase your level of physical activity. This helps achieve the recommended 150 minutes of moderate physical activity weekly.
