What Women Need to Know About Riding Electric Bikes and E-Bikes



Hi guys, Alana here with Sixthreezero, today I'm going to talk about what women need to know about riding an electric bike. So stay tuned.


All right, welcome back. We are going to talk about what women need to know about riding an electric bike, but before we do that, make sure to hit subscribe so you don't miss out on any of our videos. We have tons of tips and tricks, new products, ride alongs, lifestyle videos. It's a lot of fun. So hit subscribe and now what do women need to know before, or just about riding an electric bike? First of all, it's important to know that riding an electric bike can be dangerous. So it's really important that you understand how your bike works and you are comfortable riding before taking it out on the street or for a long ride. So while it is dangerous, once you get familiar with it, you don't need to be intimidated. A few tips that I would give are, make sure that you are familiar with the brakes.


So for example, on our EVRYjourney electric bike, we have right and left-hand brakes, the right being the rear, left being the front. So it's a good idea to practice using the hand brakes beforehand, as well as being familiar with the different riding modes. So with our electric bikes, you can ride standard mode, which is motor off pretty much functioning as a normal bike and that's a good place to start. We also have Pedal Assist, meaning that as you pedal the motor kicks in and gives you a boost comes in five different levels and we have the Throttle, which requires no pedaling at all, just a push of a button for you to go.

So practicing, riding around either in your neighborhood or somewhere that's not too busy is definitely a good idea before it's hanging it out on the street. Now, aside from that, it's also important to make sure that your bike fits perfectly into your body.


So that means adjusting the seat, adjusting the handlebar height, adjusting the tilt so that you are comfortable. You have a good upright riding position. You're getting full leg extension and with this bike, that's going to be really easy to achieve because it has forward pedaling. You can keep your seat lower and still get full leg extension, but still have that comfort of being able to put your toes on the ground because your seat isn't as high as it would have to be on a bike that doesn't have forward pedaling. So make sure before taking it out on a long ride or on a busy street, you want to make sure that you're fully comfortable and it's adjusted exactly to your body, play around with it, see what feels good and then go for a ride.


Also, what do you need to know? The motor is powerful, so this is a 500-watt motor and that means that with the Pedal Assist, you can hit 28 miles per hour and with Throttle, you can hit 20 miles per hour, so that's without pedaling. So it is a powerful bike, so again, you want to be very comfortable with how the brakes work before going out and using the motor, but that being said, it can be a lot of fun and that means it also has a lot of towing power. So are you going to be able to tow a child's trailer? Definitely. Are you going able to attach a child's seat? Yes and ride uphill. It's a lot of power to get you where you need to go, doing what you need to do, but just play around with the different riding modes. Different riding modes are going to translate better for whatever type of ride you're going on, whether it's a casual ride or you're running errands with a lot of gear, play around, see what feels good and just know your bike before taking it out.

All right, let's go for a ride and show you number four, how this works. All right, the motor's on and I'm just going to start off by engaging the Throttle. So not even pedaling, you can hit the Throttle and it gets you going.


I have Pedal Assist set to one. So all you have to do from here is pedal and I don't know if you can tell, but every time I pedal the motor kicks in and gives me a little boost, and this is number one, the lightest or the least amount of power, it can go all the way up to level five and if you take it to level five, that's when you'll hit max speed, 28 miles per hour, but I'll keep it at one for the purposes of the video.


So as you can see, it's really easy and simple to operate at any time. Once Pedal Assist is on, you can engage the Throttle to add a little more power in addition to your pedaling, or you can stop pedaling and solely use the Throttle and of course, you can always turn it off and use it as a standard bike.


So that brings me to the last thing that you need to know about riding any bike is that it's fun. Riding a bike, in general, is fun, getting outside, feeling the breeze. I always have a good time.
