More and more bike accidents happen every day and they usually take place at junctions such as crossroads or roundabouts. This is often due to the fact that it takes a few vital seconds for a ceased cyclist to start up speed again. Moreover, because you’ll be able to keep up with the flow of traffic more easily, fewer cars, buses and bug trucks won’t have to overtake you.
No registration needed
Unlike other motorized modes of transportation, electric bikes don’t need registration, insurance or license plates to get you going on them. So, if you need a safer and easy alternative to cars then an electric bike is perfect for you. All you need is just an actual bike and you are good to go!
