As part of their newly launched electric bike campaign, Transport for London asked a few dedicated cyclists just that.
Amongst the group was Marina, a Londoner who traded in her train commute for a VOLT™ Burlington and hasn’t looked back since!
Marina began to consider investing in two wheels when she struggled to fit in a good workout while stuck on the Tube.
“My commute by train was taking up so much of my day, I found I didn’t have time to exercise any more,” Marina explained. “I wanted to build exercise into my daily life in a way that was achievable and not too intimidating.”
Despite this, she found her hilly neighbourhood difficult to navigate on a traditional bicycle. The Burlington’s pedal assistance made for the perfect compromise.
“Riding an e-bike lets me put in more effort when I’m feeling up to it, or let the bike do more of the work on days when I’m not on form.”
With our two-year peace-of-mind warranty and top-quality components, VOLT™ was a no-brainer for her.
“I went for a bike from a reputable and well-established manufacturer. That way, if parts of the bike fail (such as the battery or motor), I know I’ll be able to get replacement parts to fix it and it also comes with a warranty.”
