Is an electric bike worth it?

Electric bikes are perfect for commuting to work, getting around on the weekends and are even great for exercising!

Not sure if investing in an e-bike is worth it? Well, it depends what you’re using it for.

For some, renting a Zoomo e-bike was the perfect replacement for their travel card. Instead of getting on a packed bus, train or tram everyday, you can jump on your bike and cycle to work. Plus, it’s an easier way to ride without exerting yourself or working up a sweat.

For others living in the inner city, it meant an easy way to get around; from picking up food to biking to a friends house to picking up groceries. Electric bikes are easy to park and you don’t get stuck sitting in the traffic.

For others, it meant a chance to be out in the fresh air more often.

Worried about the cost? While e-bikes can have a high starting cost to purchase outright, we offer e-bikes on a weekly subscription so you can rent for as little or as long as you like for a very affordable price! We also offer try before you buy, where part of your e-bike rental can be used as a purchase credit. You get all the perks of owning an e-bike without any hassle.

Here’s what our riders had to say about their electric bike:

  • Mark | Rides Zoomo to get to work and run errands: "Excellent, the customer service response has been quick and the core parts of the bike operate flawlessly. I took the bike on a large round trip to Homebush on full boost and it didn't miss a beat."

  • Simone & Pete | Rides Zoomo to get to the beach: "Fast delivery, fun to ride, fast, great battery life. I put it on 5 and it goes like a car. I don't even need to pedal!"

  • Charlotte | Rides Zoomo for daily errands: "I’m finding it a great replacement for a car, for travelling distances that are too far to walk or inconvenient to get to on public transport. I also find that it is a nice way to be more active / get out in the sun."

  • Ed | Rides Zoomo to get to work: "Put this thing up to full speed and it really goes! It's been so much fun"
