Electric Bikes Now Available in London

Tourists in search of ecological ways of sightseeing towns in Europe and not only, are in advantage because of the recent discovery in terms of bikes – electric bikes, or to cut it short, e-bikes. These service is now available in towns like London, Paris, Washington DC and Mexico City. The company in charge with renting electric bikes is Hertz, which provides bikes powered by lithium ion batteries and nearly silent motors. London is the most recent town where e-bikes are used, therefore, the company is waiting to see the results as the strategy includes increasing the number of electric bikes on the streets of the town. 24,000 tourists a day and not only choose to travel by electric bikes, an invention which was first introduced a year ago in London. However, there is also a big difference in the rates promoted by Hertz and by the town hall – £19 for Hertz and £51 for the city program. Users are very delighted with the speed, breaks, battery and gear, therefore, they highly recommend using electric bikes at least once when visiting these towns.
