Celebrating National E-Bike Day is a rare chance to embrace three ideas that don’t always meld together so seamlessly. Technology. Sustainable living. Fun.

National E-Bike Day is the occasion when riders can celebrate the myriad benefits of electric bicycles. Of course, these revolutionary bikes provide riders with an eco-friendly way of getting from one place to another. But the e-bike can also offer a joyful element that you simply do not get from driving.

History of National E-Bike Day

The story of e-bikes dates is older than you probably think. Indeed, the e-bike’s story carries us all the way back to the late nineteenth century.

The first notable milestone in e-bike history happened in 1895. That was the year Ogden Bolton Jr. obtained a U.S. patent for a battery-powered bicycle with a hub motor. This innovation led to further developments, like Hosea W. Libby’s design included a double electric motor. 

However, the e-bike story opened a new, significant chapter with the introduction of the Pedal Electric Cycle or pedal-assist in the late 20th century. That newest technology revolutionized e-bike design and functionality and ease of use.

The last decade or so has brought about an ever-increasing surge in e-bike demand. This surge comes from larger factors than just the number of e-bike riders. Instead, it also stems from the many technological advancements making e-bikes more accessible and enjoyable.

It doesn’t hurt that many cities now have planned bike paths…or that auto prices have soared in recent years. The solution is obviously the electric bicycle.

Lectric eBikes, a leading e-bike maker, decreed the first-ever National E-Bike Day in 2019. The occasion revealed the growing significance of e-bikes in our lives. Since then, this day has continued to celebrate those who choose a more sustainable and innovative transportation method.
