June is always a time for celebration, but that’s especially true this year! Things are steadily returning to ‘normal’ and people are finally getting a chance to celebrate with loved ones they haven't seen in a long time. Father’s Day and Graduations are two of our most beloved June celebrations, and what better way to honor both dads & grads than to give them the gift that keeps giving - a new electric bike! Additionally, check out our Father's Day Gift Guide for gift ideas!
Why an e-bike? Why now?
Electric bikes are an amazing gift for anyone really, but there are plenty of reasons why a new high performance e-bike is especially coveted by both new graduates and dads. The biggest benefit of e-bike ownership this summer is pretty basic economics. Rising gas prices are a significant issue for many Americans right now, and will likely only get worse through the high-travel months of summer. An e-bike is a great way for anyone to reduce car usage and, ultimately, dependency on expensive trips to the gas station. Both dads and grads will appreciate saving more of their hard earned money.
Many fathers faced tremendous challenges this past year, some unexpectedly became stay-at-home dads and homeschool teachers with some having taken jobs closer to home, or transitioned to remote work in order to better support their family’s changing needs. To adjust to new financial concerns and priorities, some families elected to downsize by selling a second car. But, Dad (and Mom) still need a reliable grocery-getter, a fun way to run some errands and look cool in the process. Dads will absolutely love a fast, fun and convenient ride to keep up with the kids, keep up with the errands, and keep more money in their pockets!
Because of the pandemic, very few graduates were able to experience a proper celebration last year. As restrictions loosen, and graduation celebrations resume, a new electric bike is a great way to congratulate a graduate on their achievements in the face of unprecedented challenges. It’s also a smart, convenient and economical way for a high school graduate to get around their new college campus, or for a college graduate to get to job interviews without showing up in a pool of post-work-out sweat.
Another outstanding reason to give someone an e-bike this year is the gift of healthy outdoor activity. So many people had to retreat from normal activity last year, and let’s be honest, not everyone took up marathon running, crossfit, or prepping for an Ironman competition. The ‘Covid 10’, referring to the lockdown’s impact on our collective waistline, is very real! Repeated studies continue to confirm that e-bikes provide a valuable fitness outlet and routinely allow riders to burn as many calories as other popular forms of exercise! Those lucky enough to work remotely, who may have taken multiple remote jobs, have most likely seen much less sunlight over the last year. Vitamin D and serotonin are vital to good mental health. Whether a dad or grad, the benefits of physical fitness activity, vitamin D, and good old-fashioned fresh air are universal!
Still not convinced? Last year we saw one positive trend emerge from the pandemic: significant decreases in smog and pollution all over the world as countries stayed home and stayed safe. It’s no coincidence… less car miles = less pollution. Why should we forget this so quickly as normal activities (and behaviors) resume? What better gift to give to a fresh graduate than a future with a healthier environment?
Commuters and Dad’s on the go!
Whether you are fresh out of college or riding with your kids to their first day back to in-person learning, commuter e-bikes are great for getting across town.

What to get when your Dad or Grad has everything?
Does your father already have a Juiced Bike? No problem, we still got you covered with plenty of great add-ons to help get your father fully geared up! Does your student already have a Camp Scrambler - get them a race plate that lets them know they are #1 to you. Is your dad a Juiced collector? Get him some Juiced gear so he can represent! Tech junkie? Get them a phone mount so they can keep their hands free and on the handlebars. No matter what, this June, remember giving the gift of an e-bike or e-bike accessory is a gift of health, wealth and happiness. Be well.
