How Can I Help You Learn About E-Biking?

Hey There!

I’m Lisa and I’m here to help you discover the joy and value of electric biking.

I’ve been researching, reviewing, and writing helpful content on electric bikes since the beginning of 2021, after my husband, Marc, and I got our first e-bikes. We both experienced so much fun and freedom that it was only natural to want to share it with others!

Since then, I’ve ridden, tested, and reviewed many different styles of electric bikes to help you and new riders find the best electric bike. During this process, I’ve discovered top e-bike brands and accessories as well as what’s essential to know about electric bikes.

How E-Bike Life Began

Along with my husband, Marc, our dive into e-biking began on a whim after all three of our kids had “left the nest.” We were looking for excitement, good health, and adventure that would last well into our 80s. So, I talked him into buying our first e-bikes (RadMinis from Rad Power Bikes)… with absolutely no regrets!

I knew that living in sunny Southern California would provide the opportunity to ride our electric bikes all year long. Further, I decided we could ride long-distance, explore more, and not be afraid of steep hills. So, I started researching everything we needed to know. Then I began writing articles about what I’d learned for the E-Biking Today blog.

Eventually, I started the E-Biking Today YouTube channel to give viewers a direct look at practical e-bike uses as well as the joy of owning one!

Why Should You Ride an Electric Bike?

I have to say that with the rise in gasoline prices, there isn’t a better time to try one out. Even if you don’t wish to commute to work or school, you can ride your e-bike on errands, to the gym, to pick up dinner, or just for fun… and save a ton of money on gas!

And even if you live in a location where it rains, snows, or is cold for a good part of the year, there are e-bikes that can handle pretty much anything and get you where you need to go.

Or if you have physical limitations or injuries, electric bikes can allow you to ride a bike again. You’ll get the pedal assistance you need to ride far, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors!

#1 Reason to Buy an E-Bike

Here’s the number one reason to buy an electric bike… exclusive e-bike brands are growing and offer many affordable model choices! You choose what features and bike style you need: commuter, cargo, fat bike, electric mountain bike, e-trike, and more. Thus, e-biking has become more accessible for commuters, fitness lovers, and recreational riders!

The truth is that you CAN find the best e-bike for you with the right information! E-Biking Today is here to help you find your first e-bike (or second or third), the right accessories, and to learn everything you need to know.
