We’ve all heard that work will be different from now on: Flexible schedules; a blend of onsite and work-from-home (WFH) days per week; or, in some cases, total annihilation of the physical office. And as transportation professionals, we’re all anxious to know how this new work frontier will affect the commute.

Given the post-pandemic landscape, we strongly believe e-bikes will be an effective tool in fighting the back-to-work carmageddon. The reasons are multifold: E-bikes are naturally a socially-distanced mode; they’re on-demand and efficient — riders aren’t beholden to bus schedules and won’t get stuck in traffic; and they’re an equalizer — they work well for those who don’t think of themselves as cyclists; aren’t in tip-top physical shape; have a commute that’s longer than a few miles; or need to haul kiddos and groceries.

Want more people to ride bikes for transportation? Start focusing your efforts on women! Women are the “indicator species” when it comes to adequate and safe bike infrastructure, and research shows that in places where more women ride, more people in general ride.
