5 Ways E-Bikes Are Saving The Planet
1. Less co2 Emissions
Less cars, less greenhouse gasses. According to a scientific study from ScienceDirect "The transport sector accounts for nearly one quarter of global energy-related CO2 emissions, mainly due to cars and trucks travelling on roads. In 2015, greenhouse gas emissions decreased by 22% in Europe compared to 1990 levels, putting EU on track to match its 2020 target, which is to reduce GHG emissions by 20% by 2020 and by 40% by 2030 compared with 1990." Europe has been an early adopter of the electric bike, resulting in less cars on the road.
Scientific data from "Transportation Research Procedia 37 (2019) 163–170"
2. Healthier Population
We all know that biking is good for you—any exercise is good for you—but did you know all the many ways that biking specifically helps your body and mind? You gain more from biking than just the standard 150 minutes per week of recommended exercise your doctor encourages. Biking has been studied in intense detail, and there is a lot of research to show this kind of exercise contributes to overall wellness in a way that many other forms of exercise simply don’t.
3. Less Cars & Traffic
The more people on e-bikes, the less congested roadways are. This alleviates traffic, especially in densely populated areas. Overall motorists are happier with less congestion on the streets, cyclists are saving money and getting exercise while commuting, and the planet is benefiting all at the same time! Worldwide bicycles outnumber automobiles, however we need to continue to push for green modes of transportation, we all share this planet!
4. Increasing Bike Delivery Services
More people are delivering via bicycle with the trend in e-bikes. This is a great alternative to driving to pickup food or groceries, and gives local people in your community work. For example a popular restaurant in Los Angeles, "The 4th Horseman, exclusively uses Maritime Bicycle Courier for deliveries. The owner said that during the coronavirus pandemic, 70% of orders placed at The 4th Horseman consist of deliveries."I mean without them we would I don't know where we would be," he said. "They've been so important to us."Since the coronavirus outbreak, the local courier service has increased its workforce by 33%." Quoted from -ABC7 News
