The Rise of the Electric Bike
E-bikes are growing in popularity; after all, who wouldn’t want an extra push during the commute to work
Asgard has recently released a purpose-built E-bike storage shed. As with every Asgard shed It’s made from heavy duty, weatherproof, galvanised steel - packed with innovative security features, this British made bike shed will provide top of the range security for your electric bikes, and as a bonus, this e-bike shed can have power inside, so you can store your bike and charge it at the same time.
Some say the take-up of electric bikes in the United Kingdom, could match or even exceed the E-bike revolution that’s happened in Germany of the past few years. You now hear a faint electric whir everywhere you go in Berlin. The city is now being one of Europe’s leading city’s when it comes to green transportation. The Deutsche Post (the German mail service) has 6,200 electric bikes in services for them, which goes to show how important the e-bike has become.
Of course, it’s not just the Germans that are making the most of efficient, low energy e-bikes; the Chinese have been fans of the electric bike for years. Tens of millions of e-bikes are already on the road in China, and it would seem, it’s the great cycling culture nations that have been quicker to adopt the e-bike.
Trendy hotels, such as the Hotel New York, in Rotterdam, rent out small fleets of e-bikes to visitors to the popular European city.
As for the UK market??? E-Bikeshop is part of the UK Electric Bike Company Ltd. According to 2016 e-bike sales in the UK is estimated at 30 – 35,000 units.
