Updated: Mar 16
Fans of electric bikes know that they are a great mode of transportation and exploration. They are easy to use and comfortable while still offering the benefits of being in the fresh air. The next time you want to explore a city, consider going by e-bike. Here are some recommendations for cities to explore by e-bike.
1) Austin, Texas
Every resident in Austin likely has a favorite barbecue place and music venue. Try them all when you travel by e-bike. If you’re visiting during one of the popular festivals like South by Southwest or Austin City Limits, be sure to check if there are restrictions on e-bike use.
2) Chicago, Illinois
Whether you want to take in the city’s architecture or pizza, or both, going by e-bike makes it easy to get around the Windy City. Be sure to stop for photos at the iconic Bean statue at Millennium Park, ride along the Magnificent Mile and explore Navy Pier.
3) New Orleans, Louisiana
Charming architecture, enchanting music and delicious po’ boys and beignets, New Orleans is an e-bikers delight. While the city is known for Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest, there is plenty to do in this colorful city year-round.
4) New York, New York
Avoid the subway crowds, zip through traffic and cover all five boroughs in a day on an e-bike. Highlights include the Cloisters Museum uptown, West Side Highway bike path, Central Park, and crossing the Brooklyn, Williamsburg or Queensboro bridges.
5) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
See the Liberty Bell, run the Rocky stairs, eat soft pretzels at Redding Terminal, find your favorite cheesesteak joint or follow the path of the Founding Fathers. With so much to see, Philly is one of the most underrated bike-friendly cities.
6) San Francisco, California
An e-bike can help you tackle the city’s steep hills. Check out the vibrant and diverse neighborhoods of the Mission District, Haight-Ashbury and North Beach, as well as sights like Fisherman’s Wharf, Lombard Street and Golden Gate Bridge. Just keep an eye out for the streetcars.
7) Santa Monica, California
While Los Angeles itself is sprawling, Santa Monica is much more manageable by e-bike. Travel along the 26-mile bike path and take frequent breaks at the beach. End your day eating and having fun at the famous Santa Monica Pier.
