Are e-bikes Taking Over the World of Cycling?

According to Statista, “The e-bike market is tipped to generate around 53.5 billion U.S. dollars in revenue by 2027, with a compound annual growth rate of around 12.27 percent between 2022 and 2027. This boost in the market is forecast to be due to growing environmental and health concerns”.  Are e-bikes Taking Over the World of Cycling?

Will e-bikes Dominate Cycling in the Future?  I think it’s too early to make that prediction but what I can tell you for sure is that e-bikes are not going anywhere.  The question seems to be how will the cycling community will feel about it. e-bikes are quite a polarizing subject these days.  I know it’s annoying when some Fred passes you on a climb when you’re heart is beating out of your chest.

Instead of focusing on the negatives, let’s think about the many positives of e-bikes…

e-bikes are great for your local bike shop and the bike business overall. If bike shops are making money, there will be more of them to help service your bikes. 

e-bikes are great for social riding as e-bikes can bridge the speed gap between riders of different levels. 

E-bikes are fun to ride.  Seriously, don’t knock e-bikes until you ride one. I’ve ridden friend’s e-bikes and let me tell you, it’s a blast.   

You still get a great workout on an e-bike.  You just end up going faster and farther.  There are some pro-level riders that ride e-bikes in training.  It’s just more fun.  

My suggestion, rent an e-bike or borrow one from a friend and let me know what you think.
