How far will my eBike go?

The million dollar question which is very difficult to answer. Range will vary based on motor, battery, terrain, and even weather. With so many variable is is difficult to give a specific range, but Bosch have made it easier with their eBike Range Assistant

This useful tool will allow you to put in all of the various variables and it will calculate how far you can go on your eBike. With the right conditions and mode usage you can go up to 180 miles on one charge!

Electric bike technology has progress so far over such a short period of time, so much so that they have come from the fringes of the cycling industry to be the fastest growing sector by far.
