Electric bikes are booming. Whenever you are on the Continent you see old and young breezing around urban and rural landscapes. They are simply another form of transport. They are not designed to replace 747s, cars or submarines. But once you have one in your collection of means of transport you will use it at any given opportunity.
In the past 2 years we have seen a big increase in environmentally-aware transport. Increasingly we are learning that we need to change our lifestyles – food, housing and especially transport are all under the spotlight. Replacing your second car with an ebike, using an ebike for just a few journies a week will decrease your carbon footprint, lessen your impact on your immediate environment and obviously boost your own physical and mental well-being massively. Specialized in particular have a very strong ethical policy – and we, as good citizens – are very keen to support them. At Specialized, they know that bikes have the power to improve lives and change the world. Like all consumer products, however, the process of manufacturing bikes uses resources and produces waste. Specialized directly employs over 1000 people around the world, and at last count, they work with 260 suppliers to provide you with the best bikes and cycling accessories available. Not only that, but they’re also committed to continuously evaluating the impacts of their operations, learning what they can do better, and engaging with their employees, suppliers, and peers in order to improve. There is a carbon recycling program and code of conduct pertaining to all employees.
