Our Top-rated e-bikes for leisure and the commute.
For both men and women these electric bike are built to last. They will save you time money and are great fun. If you are in London, Cardiff or Brighton and traffic or public transport is getting you down — you need an e-bike.
E-Bikes – more than just a passing fad
Electric Bikes are much more than just a fad now – they have become an economical transportation choice and big cities all over the world, especially here in the United Kingdom. Above are our top picks for the best value for money in a few different categories. Over the past few years the batteries have become smaller, more powerful and less expensive to produce, which all has contributed the drop in overall cost and improved performance.
30 to 100 miles per charge
Depending on the mode, settings and your assistance level on your e bike you are looking at anywhere from 30 to 100 miles out of a single charge (cost of about 10p) which in a lot of cases is a weeks’ worth of commute. The overall life expectance of the battery has become a bit irrelevant as they are now almost exclusively Li-Ion battery (same as your computer).
Crunch the numbers and benefit
We still gasp a bit when faced with the upfront cost but in comparison to other quality bikes they are not to far off the mark. Of course, you can go down to Halfords and pick up a £99, or cheaper, bike but you do get what you pay for. This would not be my preferred mode and quality crossing that bridge in my commute. If you crunch the numbers and think about the eco-footprint as well and the personal benefits – yes you still need to peddle the thing – of health, and in some cased if you have bad knees or ankles this can be a great low impact physio.

Other thing we love about Electric Bikes
An electric bike is guaranteed to make you smile!
You will save Money
Petrol prices, not more to say there! Electric bikes offer a great transportation alternative for just pennies per charge. As mentioned, a full charge is about 10p equivalent of 1,500 to 2,000 miles per gallon! Oh, and how about parking!? Even it the smallest hamlet in the UK you are looking at £2 per hour – London I have seen £7. If you are in the city you can consider giving up your car altogether. We didn’t even through the tax an insurance into the mix…
Clean and for the most part GREEN
I am not a hippy but do thoroughly believe that we need to put the fossil fuels in check and soon. This can be a fun and impactful way for me to contribute to the environment as well. Electric bikes typically consume fuel at an average rate 1% of that of a car.
Get there faster – cut though the congestion.
Well, as long as you are not trying it from London to Glasgow. If you are in the city I don’t need to describe the morning or evening rush and you know that some pedestrians move quicker. You can avoid the time delays and frustration of getting caught in traffic congestion. An electric bike can take advantage of the f bicycle and multi-purpose lanes, no cars and motorcycles.
While there’s a lot of talk about sustainability in transportation, an electric bicycle can be made genuinely sustainable. Purchase electricity from a “good” supplier and the bike’s fossil fuel consumption will be next to zero.
I am a bit lazy in the morning and this is a life saver and I love it! To me this is one of the most obvious advantages of electric bikes are their ability to conquer hills. Use the battery to assist by increasing your average hill-climbing speed and you’ll be at the top before you know it! Lungs on fire are a thing of the past, almost.
Ride a bike stay in shape – I don’t need to say any more. It is fun and a great workout.
No registration or on road costs
Unlike other forms of motorized transportation, electric bikes don’t require registration, license plates, or insurance. If you are over 14 you are good to go!
