The Cycling Culture : Its Influence on the Growth Plans of Many U.S. Cities

The cycling culture has finally hit the mainstream in several urban areas in America, which the U.S. Census Bureau predicts will continue to spread nationwide. As most Americans carry on with different activities in urban areas, the need to safely distance by avoiding crowded transport systems, has created a vast market for e-bikes. Electric bicycles offer not only safe and environment-friendly means of transport. They also offer greater mobility in a cityscape full of traffic-congested areas.

Most city planners no longer support the one-car-person model even with electric cars. Although ecars pose as sustainable solutions in improving air quality, they can still adversely affect urban mobility. That being the case, several U.S. cities are seeing their local governments currently implementing changes to promote the prevalence of the cycling culture on a more permanent basis as part of plans for future growth. To mention a few, the cities of Colorado Springs, San Francisco and Pittsburgh are carrying out plans of becoming techno-oriented “smart hubs.”

Cultural and Transformational Changes Creating a Boom in Ebike Sales

As a result of the cultural and transformational changes taking place in several urban areas, there is now an ongoing boom in e-bikes sales throughout the country. According to expert market analysts, the increased demand initially came from consumers looking for ways to enhance their safety while commuting amidst an environment where the risks of COVID-19 infection is still high.

Yet the demand for ebikes has now exploded even as vaccines have been administered, because the availability of a battery-powered, two-wheel vehicle, provides them with a versatile personal mobility option when travelling in different conditions. It also helped that cities are making transformational changes by designating more roads for exclusive use of cyclists and pedestrians.

The greater appeal is that there are affordably priced ebikes and in different models that fit the needs of different types of consumers; including elderly folks and those with delicate health conditions. To provide examples of electric bike models that are highly in demand today, we referenced information provided by in reviewing some of the best electric bikes under $1000.
