The Top 5 Benefits of Electric Bikes

Posted by Bluejay Bikes on

 Beyond just being an out of the ordinary option for commuting to work or providing an excuse for getting out of the house on a Saturday, there are a ton of benefits of electric bikes. Seriously, you might be surprised by how much you get out of your Bluejay Bike. There are also plenty of health benefits of electric bikes—and trust us, you don’t have to competitively ride the Bluejay Sport on a mountain loop to reap those positive side effects. Because even casual electric bike riders will be able to spot the positive impact that two wheels can have. Here, the top 5 benefits of electric bikes.

Top 5 Benefits of Electric Bikes

  1. Health Benefits of Electric Bikes
We can all agree that traditional bikes offer a great workout—especially when hills are involved—but electric bikes are a great option for those who might not be able to (or want to) exert maximum energy. Thanks to five levels of pedal assist, Bluejay Bikes will do most of the heavy lifting for you, allowing you to climb hills and race up inclines without breaking too much of a sweat. Those who suffer from pain in the knees, legs or ankles will appreciate how their electric bike makes exploring the great outdoors a lower impact experience.

The health benefits of electric bikes don’t stop there. E-biking is considered a moderate form of exercise, so you’ll reap the benefits that usually come with being active, including an increase in muscle tone, aiding with all sorts of disease management and even helping you get a better night’s sleep. Even a regular spin around the block is great for maintaining your cardiovascular and heart health. Further, the endorphins you get from being active have been shown to positively impact mental health as well. Electric bikes can offer a sense of freedom and mobility for riders, especially for those who otherwise have a hard time getting around.

  1. Financial Benefits of Electric Bikes

If you were a total car person before you acquired your first Bluejay Premiere Edition, you can attest to the fact that two wheels is way more economical than four. For instance, the initial investment in a bike is far less than a car (and thanks to our wide variety of baskets and basket racks, you won’t even miss having a trunk). And then there’s the whole thing about not having to buy gas in order for your electric bike to run or having to pay for parking spots everytime you go to run an errand. While you will have to get your Bluejay serviced, in order to keep it running smoothly, it’ll be a far smaller bill than when you take your car to the auto shop.  

  1. Environmental Benefits of Electric Bikes

According to the EPA, each passenger car is known to emit about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year, adding to global warming and polluting our towns and cities. Since cars run on gas (or diesel) they are also known to release smog, carbon monoxide and other hazardous toxins into the air. An electric bike, on the other hand, is a zero-emission form of transportation, as it relies on a battery pack to get going. Bikes are also lighter than cars, thus being far less damaging to the road and other infrastructure. If you’re looking for easy ways to live a greener lifestyle or just leave behind a smaller footprint, swapping out a few car rides per week with an electric bike ride is enough to do the trick. 

  1. You Can Travel Faster & Farther On an Electric Bike

Okay, this one might not be that surprising, but you’ll go way faster and farther on an electric bike than you could on a traditional bike. In fact, you can reach speeds up to 28 MPH on the Bluejay Sport (thanks to that Bafang 500W mid-drive torque sensor motor) and the 48V battery will take you up to 75 miles on a single charge. All of that and you’re allowed to ride an electric bike in almost any bike lane, so you can easily avoid traffic jams and rush hour slowdowns.
Plus, you’ll arrive at your destination far less tired (and much less sweaty) since you can put your pedal assist to good use. So go ahead and ride your bike to dinner tonight or commute to work on your Bluejay tomorrow morning. 
  1. Electric Bikes Don’t Need a License or Permit (In Most Places)

Seriously, all you have to do is place an order on, wait for it to arrive and assemble your bike (which we promise is an easy 10 step process). Then you can pop on a helmet and head out to explore. That’s it! Since electric bikes are treated much like traditional bikes in most places, there’s no need to apply for a license or wait for a permit to arrive. In fact, the only registration we actually suggest you do is on our website! That way you can easily get in touch with our team if you have any questions about your Bluejay’s warranty.
