Electric Bikes for Business: Save Money & Go Green

Using electric bikes bikes for businesses can mean making deliveries, meeting clients or commuting to work by bicycle or electric bike. Let’s see why this might be a good idea for your business:

You’ll cut down on business transportation expenses. Whether your company uses cars to deliver/pick up goods or meet with clients, an e-bike will help you keep more of your cash in your pocket. Electric bikes can dodge parking tickets and fines, park closer to your clients and run up to 35 km/hr to make sure you get where you’re going on time.

If your work requires mostly being in one location, consider starting a bike commuting program for employees to bike to and from work. People who ride bikes to work instead of driving or taking transport are more productive, healthier and happier. Employees will notice that you are looking out for their wellbeing in both transportation and health, and will appreciate your attention to their needs.

Having employees ride bicycles or e-bikes while on the job or offering a bike commuting program through your work promotes an image of a green, conscientious business. Current and potential customers will view your company as proactive, with a mind for sustainability. Young professionals and customers are more likely to work with or for a “green” company than one that doesn’t offer any eco benefits.

Biking for your business or commuting to and from work on an electric bike instead of using a car substantially reduces the harmful effects on the environment. In rush hours, more cars means more congestion and the longer it takes to get where you’re going, the more harmful emissions you’re putting into the air. When more people ride bikes, not only are they not contributing to the pollution, but they are also reducing congestion by not being on the road, allowing the people in cars to move faster and produce less pollution.
