What are the benefits of e-bikes and e-trikes?

E-bikes (electric power-assisted bikes) have become the fastest growing market in bicycle sales in recent years. There are many reasons why this is happened, including lighter, smaller and more efficient batteries, e-bike designs that look funkier, a wider range of styles of bikes and reducing prices (although e-bikes are still quite costly).

While at the Scottish Caravan, Motorhome and Holiday Home Show 2020 at the SEC, Glasgow, yesterday I asked one of the stand holders, Synergy Cycles for their take on e-bikes.

Here is my short interview:

On my way out of the show, I bumped into a lady test cycling an e-trike. The foldable e-trike is owned by AS Bikes. Listen to the short interview to find out why she was testing an e-trike.

The show continues until February 9. See Scottish Caravan Show.
