Why Consider Owning an Electric Bike on Maui?
Electric bike rentals and sales are on the rise here on Maui, and it’s easy to see why! Both new and returning customers are excited about the many benefits of a sustainable transportation and recreation choice. Simply put, electric bicycles or “e-bikes” are a climate-friendly, fun way to get around - you can reduce your carbon footprint and have the time of your life riding an e-bike through the unmatched natural beauty of Maui.
Bicycle riding has many unique health benefits. Just by switching to two wheels for some of your transportation needs, you will increase your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and flexibility; improve your joint mobility, posture, and coordination; decrease your stress and body fat levels, and strengthen your bones! Even better, bicycling puts far less stress on your joints than running or other high-impact exercises - making bicycling a great option for older people or people with health limitations.
The electric-assist featured on all of our e-bikes allowing you to take a break from pedaling if needed, helps you ascend a hill easily, or just cruise for fun! For daily commuters who don’t want to arrive at work a sweaty mess, this is a wonderful, climate-friendly option. Plus, with our electric assist you can explore trails and sights you couldn’t before - electric bikes make it easy for anyone to climb steep hills and ride longer routes.
Finally, e-bikes are safer than standard bicycles in many ways. Riding an electric bike gives riders the boost needed to take longer routes rather than shorter, possibly more dangerous routes; and enables a commuter to quickly get through risky intersections.
