E-Bikes Boost Number Of Bike Trips, Distance Traveled, In Norway

June 5, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A study conducted in Norway, a nation of eager bike buyers who apparently do not ride regularly, finds that using an electric bike (e-bike) increases the time spent cycling and the distance traveled. The report says e-bikes are “responsible for dramatic changes in people's transport patterns” in the country. E-bikers travel twice the distance of conventional bikers, in terms of kilometers and number of trips taken. Daily trips went from an average of 0.9 to 1.4 trips, and the average length doubled from 4.8 to 10.3 kilometers. E-bike use is different among men and women: men tend to take longer trips, while women take more trips.
