Why electric bikes are practical
Electric bikes = healthier, greener, hassle-free commute
For a greener commute, an electric bike is a wise choice. You'll get to work in a reasonable time, and you won't necessarily need to change when you arrive as electric bikes get you to your destination with a lot less sweat and a lot less hassle. Obviously, with panniers, there's plenty of room for a change of clothes if you wish!
Electric bikes = help build fitness and keep you healthy
With an electric bike, you can gradually build your fitness at your own pace - use the power boost when you need it, and pedal when you don't.
Electric bikes = great for the school run
Teachers report that children who cycle or walk to school are more alert and more able to concentrate than those who arrive by car. Why not use the school run to improve your little nippers' confidence on a bike and improve your fitness at the same time? Public Health England recommends 150 mins moderate activity per week for adults and one hour per day for children. A school run on pedals helps to achieve this!
Electric bikes = great for holidays
Staycations have never been more popular - and what better to explore beautiful Britain than with your electric bike? The mountains of Wales, the highlands of Scotland, the hills of the Dales and the expanses of the Fens are all more enjoyable to explore with your electric bike - it'll be time for tea before you run out of juice!
Electric bikes = save you money
Just the power of your pedal and a little electrical assistance, that's all. Save on fuel, save on parking, save on road tax and insurance!

Learn to ride or boost your confidence with your Emu Bike
If you've not ridden a bike for a while, if you need to boost your confidence, or you need to learn to ride a bike from scratch, Fox Cycling makes it easy. We use Emu Bikes in our special one-to-one sessions to teach you what you need to be safe and confident on the road.
Build and track your health with Emu Bikes and MyZone
At Fox, we know that the more motivated you are, and the more in control of your health you feel, the more likely you are to see long-lasting effects - and that's why we endorse MyZone heartrate tracking. It's a belt that picks up your heartrate as you exercise (whether that's riding your Emu bike or walking the dog) and syncs with your smartphone. This shows you how hard you're working, how many calories you're burning, and when you've achieved the recommended amount of physical activity for the week. Supercool!
Using heartrate software to track your activity ensures you're staying within safe limits, and what's more, this information can be used to reduce your health insurance premiums with some companies.
