If you have a soft spot for pink bikes, look no further than Bluejay. Our Premiere Edition electric bikes come in blush pink and rose gold. While they’re definitely pretty in pink, these e-bikes are way more than that, too.
If you’ve ever woken up the morning after a lengthy bike ride with aching leg muscles and tight hips, you’d probably benefit from a post-ride stretch. Any sort of exercise that pushes you to the limit is sure to exhaust your muscles and leave you with aches and pains, but committing to a stretching routine will help alleviate the only downside to your biking habit. This is also true if you’re on a Bluejay electric bike, since you’ll still have to pedal in order to activate the battery-powered pedal assist.
Based on the name alone, it’s easy to assume that hopping on an electric bike will require absolutely zero effort from the rider. It’s just steering and fun, right? Not exactly. As many potential riders before you have wondered, can you ride an electric bike without pedaling?
The concept of bike touring is just as simple as it sounds: It’s the act of taking your bike on an extended trip, which can vary from a weekend spent crossing city limits or embarking on a weeklong tour that will cover hundreds of miles. It’s often likened to the backpacking of the biking world and can certainly include nights spent camping out under the stars. But what is a specialized touring bike? And what makes it so effective for this kind of exploring?
Some might say that you can’t put a price on a glorious weekend spent cruising around town, wind in your hair, sun shining down and endless hours to explore—all without having to exert too much effort while pedaling. We’d have to agree with those folks. But doing all of that requires obtaining an electric bike. So, is an e-bike worth it?
Whether you’re looking to relocate where bike commuters are a big part of the culture or you’re just looking for a vacation spot where you can bring your Bluejay E-Bike along for some eco-friendly exploring, it’s worth considering how much that destination invests in its bike infrastructure. Most of these bike-friendly cities have hundreds of miles of bikeways, which encompasses bike paths, dedicated bike lanes on roadways and neighborhood greenways, where biking and walking is prioritized over cars and vehicle speeds are lowered.
