Hauler Cargo ebike, Heybike

Can you feel that? The frost is melting, the temperature is rising, and the sun is coming out to play. What better way to celebrate the dawn of a new season than with a leisurely ride?

Cycling is the perfect excuse to escape the confines of indoors, to explore what the world has to offer. Every year, many riders leave their e-bikes in storage during winter, and it’s not until Spring that they feel rejuvenated enough to ride again.

Whether you are returning from a dormant winter, or you are keen to keep your year-long cycling obsession going, you’re in the right place. Here are 5 springtime adventures to go on with a Heybike cargo e-bike.

Scenic Bike Path Ride

Finding the perfect bike path can open up a world of possibilities. A well-maintained one can take you across various locales, from the shopping center to the park to the neighborhood streets. You may even catch a glimpse of a sprawling lake or river. Aside from being a scenic wonderland, a bike path lets you ride alone or with the company of others – without fear of vehicle traffic.

Do some research to find conveniently located bike paths near you. Consult your local council website, visit an online community forum, or search your area on a Maps app to find the best riding spots. Once you do, map out your route. Then ensure that your electric bike is fully charged, and the tires are set to the correct tire pressure. Feel free to invite a few friends along for the ride, too!

Better yet why not turn your scenic bike path ride into a day trip? Organize a few nearby activities to break up the ride, like a catch of frisbee or lunch at a local café. Personalize your journey to reflect your interests. For some inspiration, here are some of the top places for Spring road biking in the U.S.

Family Picnic Outings

Treat the family to a picnic outing they will cherish for a lifetime. Pick a time and day when the sun is shining, the temperature is just right, and the kids are eager to escape the house for a while.

Oh, and be sure to find a comfortable, relaxing spot to enjoy lunch – the local park, the beach – and bring a picnic rug to rest on. Most importantly, remember to pack a bunch of tasty treats, including sandwiches, fresh fruit, fizzy drinks, and maybe some wine for the grown-ups.

When riding on a Heybike cargo e-bike, you can utilize the electric pedal assist to conserve energy, making life easier while you tackle steep hills. You can also attach e-bike accessories to increase storage space, including front and rear baskets, a pet bike basket, and a bike rack pannier bag. These accessories give you plenty of ways to transport food, picnic rugs, and other goods safely.

Our most recent e-bike, the Heybike Hauler, has a total payload capacity of 440 lbs. It also has a DIY pegboard on the back, which lets you slot various accessories – bike locks, water bottles, bike pumps – into place securely. Best of all? The dual-battery system will take you up to 85 miles on a single charge.

Urban Exploration

If you live in an urban, densely populated part of the U.S., you may have limited opportunities to explore nature. Of course, cruising down the city streets can be just as exciting as anywhere else. Having to contend with heavy traffic and pedestrians will certainly keep you on your toes. And if you need to commute to work or school, an electric bike may be cheaper and faster than driving or taking public transport.

When going on an urban exploration, familiarize yourselves with the local road rules. Most parts of the U.S. have strict e-bike laws. For example, in the state of California, a Class 1 electric bike (with only pedal assist) can only ride up to 20 mph. If riding at night, wear bright, colorful clothing and use your headlight, as this will make it easier for others to see you in low-light settings.

Beach or Lake Trip

Ah, the fresh open water. There is something special about riding along the beach and around a lake. You can listen to the gentle splashing of the waves, admire the local wildlife, and – if you wait long enough – watch the sunset over the horizon. You can also participate in various activities, including swimming, fishing, and outdoor sports.

An e-cargo bike is the perfect companion for any beach or lake adventure. The Heybike cargo e-bike has 20x3” fat tires, which are large and wide enough to ride over loose gravel, mud, and sand. The hydraulic front fork suspension will help absorb impacts, and the hydraulic disc brakes provide reliable braking power for enhanced safety. If fishing is on the cards, you can use the large carrying capacity to transport fishing poles, bait, cooler baskets, and other accessories.

Camping Trips

Camping is the perfect chance to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday living. You can surround yourself with nature, admire stunning views, and experience the thrill of staying overnight in the elements. Camping trips are even better when you use an electric bike.

With an electric cargo bike, you can ride to remote campsites that may be inaccessible by car and too far to walk. You can also transport enough gear to your destination without relying on backpacks. This way, you don’t have to leave behind any vital equipment to save space.

Best of all? Electric bikes for camping, like the Heybike Hauler, have a powerful 1400w peak motor and a dual-battery setup. As a result, you can reach your destination faster than a non-electric bike.
