Health Benefits from Riding Electric Bikes

Electric bicycles offer people who may not be in top physical shape the option of getting outside and riding a bike, without fear of having to go up a long hill or getting too tired on a hot day. Electric bikes allow riders to pedal and/or use power, combining the two for healthy exercise without fear of overdoing it.

Older riders can use electric bikes with ease. The design makes it easy to get on and simple controls make maneuvering a snap. Even if hills make it hard to ride a bike normally, the power of the electric bike will take its rider up and over in no time.

Imagine the enjoyment of riding a bike again without worrying about getting overtired half way home. Plan exercise by pedaling where it makes sense, and let the bike do the work the rest of the time.*

Today’s retirement communities are often spread out on acres of land, or close to parks and biking routes. Electric bikes can go on the same paths that manual bikes do. Feel the freedom of getting around easily and quickly, without the hassles of parking or busy traffic.

Get out and enjoy life! Be active outside, and enjoy nature!

    Electric bikes have been popular for years in other parts of the world – especially in Europe and China. It wasn’t until recently, with skyrocketing energy prices (last Summer) and increasing environmental concerns, that they became a vialble option for many Americans. With improved technology, extended range and longer battery life they’re more attractive than ever before. Not only that – but they’re very affordable! An entry level electric bike can be purchased for $499 or lower.

    Here’s a great resource for electric bikes & scooters.

  2. Thanks for the comment, link..

    I love to use mine often, many people often stop me and comment on it too, although I had one minor accident, on a cold day while I was turning a corner I had an black ice patch and the bike slid under me, so I put it away for the winter.

    Actually I own 2 of them, I use one and charge the other battery, and the costs of possibly repairing a bike for me justified having one identical bike for the spare parts too..

    I also took a hockey face mask and added it very simply to a bike helmet, and it works great, looks great too. very practical

    I have 2 baskets, one in the front and one in the back.. took the baskets from an old freezer.. costs me nothing.. I love using them.

    I actually put 50 kg of onion on the back rack easily and brought it from for the fruit market. Did the same thing with the potatoes.
    I stocked up for the winter. I have a cool storage for it all too.

    It is so convenient to be able to pop up the stores anytime I want and so cheaply too…

    Actually the bike is easy, light, to bring indoors storage too.. you take out the battery first, and next bring in the bike..
