Electric bicycles, alternative to cars?

Second and third cars for a family are becoming obsolete with the skyrocketing costs of auto insurance and gasoline.  Many families are looking for alternatives to having a second or third car and electric bicycles are being viewed as a great alternative.

Electric bicycles offer you the ability to get to where you need to go quickly, safely and economically - a winning combination!  Electric bicycles are much more efficient and cost-effective as compared to cars and even motorcycles.

Electric super bikes as some would call them can either assist you with your trip by offering 50% of the legwork (power assist models) or can whisk you to wherever you need to go as you steer (power-on-demand models).  Electric bike kits can even turn an existing bike into an electric bicycle by adding a conversion kit for an electric bike.

Electric bicycles have improved in terms of technology to the point where they are far more economical than even the hybrid vehicles on the market.  The long-life of electric bicycles and the mere pennies it costs to recharge the battery make electric bicycles a far more economical choice for anyone commuting to work, school or anywhere else you need to go.

A commuter bicycle made in commuter heaven - electric bicycles are a great choice for people in small or large cities around the globe.  It is easy to travel into work on electric bicycles and you can even buy a folding electric bicycle so you can be assured to be able to take your bicycle into the office, gym, house or anywhere you want to store it rather than leaving it outside.

Electric bicycles are also safer for the environment than any car or hybrid vehicle.  Electric bicycles have become very popular with many families looking for alternatives to second or third vehicles.  In fact there are likely more electric bicycles on the road than you may realize.

Electric bicycles do not necessarily stick out any more than traditional bicycles.  With electric bike kits, for example, you can convert almost any bike into an electric bike.  But, before you rush out to order a conversion kit for an electric bike you want to make sure that your bike can be converted - there are some models that may not be able to be converted for one reason or another.

Most bike shops will let you know if your bike can become an electric bike or not and some will even do the conversion for you and test it so you know your electric bike kit was set up right.

Today's economy almost demands that people find alternative means of transportation other than buying 2nd or 3rd cars.  Electric bicycles have been seen as one of the safest and most economical alternatives to traditional cars and even hybrid cars.

Rather than spend thousands of dollars per year on insurance and skyrocketing gas prices you can get where you need to go by selecting on of the electric bicycles on the market.
