Top 6 women’s e-bikes

In 2015, Transport for London reported that 23 million journeys are made by bike annually in the capital. However, despite these promising figures, only 27% of riders are female – highlighting a significant gender imbalance. British cycling is actively trying to encourage more women into riding and have set a target to get another 1 million women cycling by 2020.

Distance and the need to shower or change at work deter many female cyclists from changing their commute. However, e-bikes offer an ideal solution to these problems by combining convenience, enjoyment and reduced effort.

There is definitely an e-bike to suit everyone and below we list some of the top women’s e-bikes on the market:
