Bikes are an increasingly popular means of transport, with their easy portability and affordability. However, as a responsible citizen, it is important to take into consideration the environmental impact of riding a bike on the roads. Further, you would want to enhance your bike in every way possible to get the maximum features out of it without compromising on cost.

Tips To Make Your Bike Smart And Eco-Friendly

The following are some steps you can take to make your bike smart and eco-friendly so you can take maximum advantage of its capabilities.

  • Installing A Mobile Phone Holder:- According to the Motor Vehicles Act, it is illegal to be talking on a mobile phone while on your motorbike. However, sometimes you may need the cutting edge technology of your mobile phone to be able to navigate your way to a destination. By installing a mobile phone holder on your bike’s handles, you would be able to view your phone easily without getting dangerously distracted by it while riding. It is important to always ride responsibly.
  • Bluetooth Lock:- This would be particularly useful for you if you live in an area that is prone to theft, or if you often forget to lock the handle of your bike. By installing a Bluetooth lock for your bike, you can take advantage of technology to make your bike the smartest you can be. It would be installed on your bike tires and be connected to your mobile phone via Bluetooth, and you will be able to lock and unlock your bike by simply tapping your phone. Furthermore, you would get an alert on your phone if the lock is opened by somebody else.

These are extremely advantageous in helping you navigate your way to a destination, as whenever you need to take a turn, the handlebar for that side will vibrate to let you know.
  • Regular Emissions Check:- Riding a bike can be hazardous for the environment due to the fumes from the tailpipe. As a responsible citizen, it is important to get your bike checked regularly for emissions. It is advisable to do so at least once every month.
