This step-by-step guide is crafted to help beginners understand how to ride an electric bike with confidence and safety.

Understand how to turn the bike on and off and how to change the assistance levels. Some e-bikes come with a throttle while others rely solely on pedal-assist; knowing the difference is crucial.

Step 2: Safety First
