LONDON, August 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Forget sweaty tubes, packed buses and gridlocked roads - during this year's summer of sports the easiest and most comfortable way of getting around London is by electric bike.
Scott Snaith, Owner of 50cycles says that sales of their Kalkhoff electric bike range have doubled over the last few months. Scott believes that the threat of congestion along with the Government's Active Travel programme which encourages more walking and cycling are the main reasons behind their increased sales.
As a spectator, cycling to venues is much easier than you might think and with free, secure, managed cycle parking what better way to absorb the sporting atmosphere and all that London has to offer. Transport for London have put together a guide of cycling routes to the Olympic Park along with 14 other cycle guides covering the whole of greater London recommended by cyclists themselves.
If you're a local resident or work within the city then an electric bike offers the freedom and flexibility of getting about without relying on public transport or worrying about congested roads. Many smart commuters have already planned a swift route to the office on their electronic bikes, leaving them stress-free and able to enjoy the buzz of this year's events.
Pedal Assist is the best way to power an electric bike. It uses a centre motor to efficiently multiply your own pedal power giving you total control over the motor at all times, a wider choice of gears and brakes plus far greater reliability and range, superior efficiency and hill-climbing.
Recent revolutionary breakthroughs including the new Impulse technology means electric bike users can enjoy a 60 mile range from a single charge. And at just 10p per charge from mains, it's easy to see why thousands of people across London are choosing to ride electric bikes every day.
