Nowadays, there are a lot of different ways you can get around to where you need to go. There are cars, bikes, public transportation, and more. But each one comes with a cost. Today we are going to compare the cost of electric cycle to that of driving a car.
Travel for Cheaper
No one has been impressed with the cost of gas lately. Taking a trip into town might not be worth the cost of gas to do it. With warmer weather rolling in, riding an ebike could save you money. On average, it costs anywhere between 4-12 cents to charge an electric bike. So, let’s say you take your bike out and ride for 20 miles. You would still have battery life left, and that trip into town just cost you less than 12 cents. If you drove 20 miles into town, on average it could cost anywhere between $1.50 to $2. Point being: the cost of electric cycle is much cheaper (and you get a fun ride) than driving a car.
Why Use an ebike in Place of a Car?
If you live in an area where you constantly go to the same place every day and it isn’t very far, an electric bike is the power move. So, for example, a college student traveling from their off-campus house to their classes every day. Or living in a small town (like here in Red Wing, Minnesota) where driving to work could be less than 10 miles away. The cost of electric cycle may seem a bit intimidating at first, but when you compare it to how much you save down the road, you almost can’t compare. Yes, an electric bike might be more expensive than a normal bike. But, it will get you places faster and you can travel further than before.
So, what are you waiting for? Not only do you save money on gas, you also get to enjoy the outdoors and get some exercise. It almost isn’t even fair to compare the cost of a car versus the cost of electric cycle.
