Fast. Fun. Electric.

Electric bicycles or e-bikes are bicycles with an attached electric motor that provides pedal assistance. E-bikes can also be propelled by the motor alone, eliminating the need to pedal all together.

Pedal assistance makes the joy of traveling by bicycle accessible to riders of varying abilities. By amplifying your pedaling power, e-bikes make long-distance commutes a breeze. Pedal assist on most e-bikes will last for 25-50 miles on a single charge, depending on the assisted power level. For shorter trips or to get some exercise, pedal assist can be turned off.

The popularity of e-bikes is soaring. They are one of the best sustainable commute solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bicycles, including e-bikes, allow for adequate social distancing and provide a great way to travel while taking in some much-needed fresh air.

The state of Minnesota requires e-bikes to have operational pedals and not exceed 20 mph. No license is required, and persons aged 15 years and older may operate an e-bike. E-bikes share the same road rules as traditional bicycles.

Want to give e-biking a try? Nice Ride recently launched their own fleet of electric bicycles at stations across Minneapolis. Dealers and bike shops across the city also offer e-bike test rides.

While the price of e-bikes vary, they are becoming increasingly affordable. High quality electric bicycles can be purchased for under $1,000. For those who choose to replace a car with an e-bike, the long-term cost savings are immense.
