Pedego Ebike Brings Reasons to Smile

February 28, 2023

Sheila Fraser is co-owner of Pedego Oyama along with her husband Murray Fraser. She loves her Pedego electric bike and was recently re-inspired by all the benefits to cycling. Of course, the reasons to smile on a bike are individual to each rider but Sheila shares some of her biggest “Smile Buckets.”

Sheila’s Ebiking Smile Buckets

Bucket # 1 – Physical Health: Beat illness and lose weight by being more active. Your ebike can help you do this by giving you an extra boost when you need it. While there are straight forward health benefits that would make anyone smile, did you know that cycling instead of driving means breathing fresher air? When it comes to your health, it’s a challenge to find a down side.

Bucket #2 – Mental Health: This is my really BIG SMILE! I hadn’t expected to experience such emotional highs when I started riding, and now, this moves me every day to PED-E- GO more!

  • Increase brain power
  • Enjoy heathy family time
  • Make creative breakthroughs
  • Help your community – find a cause to pedal in support of
  • Positive addiction
  • Go for a ride to beat being tired

Bucket #3 – Health of the Planet: Saving the planet gives reason to smile. Think about this: 20 bikes can be parked in the same space as one car. Similarly, a bike only takes around 5 per cent of the materials needed to manufacture a car. And then there is energy consumption. It’s substantially less than powering a gas engine. Let’s all hop on our bikes for those short trips around town or to work. Smiles guaranteed.

The best thing about cycling is how much fun it is. Whether I’m cycling down the Okanagan Rail Trail, heading up Middleton Mountain, or on a leisurely ride with Murray, there’s loads to smile about. I forget that I’m actually exercising, mentally and physically, and being good to the planet while I’m having so much “HELLO FUN!” How many miles of smiles and reasons to PEDEGO there are for you? What’s your fav??
