Can you ride an electric bike without pedaling?

 

Riding in the city with an electric hybrid bike

 

One of the most common questions is whether or not you can ride an electric bike without pedaling.

Charge City and Comfort models incorporate a throttle, which enables riding without pedaling up to a speed of 20 mph. Of course, pedaling increases the battery’s range and offers a better workout, but for many, the option of not pedaling is also appealing.

You can also use the throttle to get a little boost when you need it most. With Charge electric bikes, you can pedal if you want to, or coast if you don’t.
