Cycling 10,000 km with an Electric Bike in Canada

It took me over two years to complete this milestone of riding a BionX electric bike in the city of Montreal, Canada.

I purchased an electric bike at Velo Branché in May 2016 and surpassed the 10,000 km (6000 miles) in September 2018 by cycling mostly in Montreal, Canada.

While sharing my experience, here’s the typical question people ask me;

Average cycling distance per day?

This milestone of cycling 10,000 km with an electric bike was achieved by cycling an average of 25 km (16 miles) per day.

What average speed?

The average speed of 24 km/h (15 mph) cycling in a Canadian city

What’s the price per kilometer?

Considering the initial acquisition cost (3000$ CAD) and maintenance cost (1000$ CAD) required to be cycling with an electric bike for 10,000 km, every kilometer costed 0,04$ CAD.
