OHM E-bike Autumn Riding

It's that time of year again. The leaves are changing color, the air is getting crisp, and the days are getting shorter. But that doesn't mean you have to hang up your bike for the season. In fact, with a little preparation, you can keep on riding all fall long—and an ebike can make it even easier.

Here are a few tips to help you keep pedaling through the autumn months:

Layer up

 Fall e-bike riding

When the weather starts to turn, make sure you have the right gear to keep you warm. Dress in layers so you can adjust as the temperature changes throughout the day. And don't forget to protect your hands, feet, and head—these are the areas that are most likely to get cold. Gloves are a must to keep your fingers from freezing, and a thermal liner under your helmet will help keep your head warm.

Stay visible

OHM Lights

As the days grow shorter and the mornings more misty, it's important to be extra cautious when riding your bike. Make sure you can be seen by cars, and take extra precautions by wearing bright, reflective clothing. Before each ride, use your headlight and taillight. But also check that they are clean, functional, visible, and secure.

Maintain your bike

OHM Chain

As the weather changes and the leaves begin to fall, you'll want to make sure your ebike chain is well-lubricated. The dry air can cause the chain to dry out faster than usual, making it more susceptible to damage. Keep an eye on it and make sure to lubricate it regularly to keep it in good condition.

 

Fall is a great time to get outside and enjoy the cooler weather on your bike. But as the days get shorter, it can be harder to find time to ride. An ebike can help you get in some extra rides this fall by making it easier to get out and about.

If you're looking for a way to keep riding all fall, an ebike is a great option. With an ebike, you can get around town easily, ride on trails, and even commute to work. Plus, you can get in some extra rides without having to worry about the shorter days.
