Heading back to the office? It’s not just “the office” we’re all going back to.
Will be going back to seeing your colleagues face-to-face again, back to having lunches out. It’s back to dressing in more than “daytime PJ’s”. It’s back to the daily commute. Also mean back to being jammed in a metal box with increasing numbers of other people, if you catch Public Transport, or stop-start traffic if you drive a car.
The cost of petrol isn’t the only thing going up. Public consciousness about the effects of climate change is also on the rise and an increasing number of people are factoring this into their purchasing decisions. Since the pandemic there has been an increase in cycling routes in/out of the CBD in an effort to keep people “socially distanced” while they stay physically active.
More and more people are turning to bikes as a convenient, safe and low-cost means of transportation.
Electric assist bikes (ebikes) are an increasingly popular transport choice. Personal, comfortable, fast – per kilometre an ebike is affordable to service and makes riding a breeze.
At Velo Electric we specialise in commuter-style ebikes. Utility bikes that are perfect for managing daily needs, but can also be a great ride on weekend escapes.
The Focus Planet2 is a great example of a versatile commuter style ebike, available in two different models
Revel in the feeling of near-effortless motion as you glide past traffic on your commute or errands.
A low step-through frame means it’s always easy to get on or off, and you’ll never hurt yourself coming off the saddle too quickly. Other features that make this a great commuter ebike include a wide gear range, front and rear lights, kickstand, chain guard, mudguards, wide tyres, and a powerful (but quiet) Bosch engine to tackle any head wind or hill climb.
This model is also fitted with a rear rack allowing you the option of carrying panniers or a basket. With these accessories you can easily carry your lunch or spare clothes, do a grocery shop on the way home, or pack for a weekend away!
Go harder, go further!
With a Performance Line CX motor and a larger capacity battery, this perfectly behaved commuter can also take all it’s served up on the weekend. Be adventurous on some rail trails, tackle those big hills! Your Planet2 6.8 has your back! Find out more here!
