With climate change becoming a central issue in our future – especially in The Netherlands – we find ourselves wondering what more we can do individually to curb emissions. But there’s an answer that’s often overlooked: rethink our urban habits! The way we get around town is a big part of our carbon footprint, and some means of transportation, such as cars, unnecessarily waste precious resources – especially in a city environment. So what’s the solution then? Hop on your bike! And thanks to Upway, a new online platform offering quality refurbished and used e-bikes for a fraction of the cost of a new ride, it’s never been easier to make the switch!
Born in 2021, Upway is THE name to remember to find the best e-bikes available on the market, without breaking the bank. Driven by the mission to make electric bicycles accessible to everyone, the young startup created a never-seen-before platform for electric bicycles: a marketplace where you can sell – and most importantly, buy – refurbished and used e-bikes at unbeatable prices. Discounts of up to 60%, a huge choice of e-bikes, free delivery in The Netherlands, and delivery to your doorstep… Really, there are no more excuses not to hop on your bike and hit the road – without harming the environment!
On their marketplace, Upway offers hundreds of different models of e-bikes – all subject to the same level of attention to quality and detail. They’re refurbished and secondhand, but all treated with the utmost care – and they come with a 1-year warranty. With twenty inspection checkpoints, your e-bike is serviced thoroughly before reaching your doorstep. For these checks and repairs, Upway works with in-house mechanics that take care of your future ride. After that, the bike is yours to help you eat up the miles – without a gram of CO2 emitted.
While e-bikes are an amazing solution to change our transport habits, we also need to deeply rethink our consumerist tendencies to face climate change. Because after all, new isn’t always better. Upway e-bikes come with no extra resources used, no industrial or hard to recycle waste, and a seamless renewal of the bike market while the number of cars on the road decreases… Hop on, we’re saving the Earth!
