The rise in females cycling
They say eBikes are good for the 3 F’s; First Timers, Families and Females. When it comes to women and riding bikes the number has gone up quite a significant amount however there is still more that can be done to help this along the way. Also, more information can be given to encourage more women to cycle.
In recent years there has been a real surge in the number of people cycling. 2017 saw the number of female British cycling memberships double and increase by 723,000. The sales in eBikes had also doubled from 1 million to 2.2 million in europe. 2019 then saw more women sign up for a British cycling membership than ever in 60 years.
The number of women cycling is on the rise but the question still remains why it was low to begin with. The main setback is said to be feeling unsafe. However, one of the greatest selling points to electric bikes is they are seen to be a safer alternative to normal bikes. Bike company NYCeWheels stated riders are less likely to be involved in an accident when riding an electric bike than a regular one
Another benefit to eBikes that ensure safety is your bike immediately responds when you start to pedal allowing you to accelerate ahead when at a traffic light. This will allow you to be seen better by the other vehicles in your lane. Another factor that places eBikes at a high ranking for safety is when you are riding on the road there are moments where you need to make speedy manoeuvers and snap decisions. An e-bike allows you to be able to do just that.
