At this time of year, between Christmas celebrations and New Year resolutions many of us are searching for the best solution to improved health and fitness.  As the last tasty morsels are finished off many of us are consumed by an overwhelming fear of how long the road can seem to recover our pre-festive bodies once more.  Here are five good reasons why electric bikes can help you back inside your favourite clothes

ways to health

 

What are the benefits of an electric bike over normal bikes?

1. You’ll Actually Use It

Buying things is easy – a gym membership, an exercise bike, a Shakeweight (a what?) – enjoy a free bit of dopamine for doing something noble, but with none of the attendant sweating. A great deal, right?

It’s using those things consistently to improve your health that’s the hard part, and bikes are no exception. According to the research, only 46% of conventional bikes are ridden even once or twice per week[1]. For many, the mental image of inching up a hill, lungs and legs on fire, buffeted by wind, sleet, short of breath and short of time, is enough to nip the idea of cycling in the bud. But think again... 

 Electric bike owners find it much easier to muster up the willpower, with 81% of e-bikes ridden once or twice a week and 33% every day.[2]

So sure, traditional cycling can be great at improving your health, but that depends heavily on how much – if at all – you do it.

 

2. It’s On Your Terms

The appeal of a conventional bike is that it’s all down to you. Your Pride. Total self-sufficiency. You versus the world making cycling a battle against gravity rather than a heart-lifting pleasure.  But if you’re older, less fit, or you've simply done all that "proving yourself" already, developing the initial level of fitness necessary to enjoy that self-sufficiency can be a real barrier to entry. It can actually be dangerous too.

With an e-bike, anyone can ease themselves into cycling. Start with high assistance and you’ll be able to cover the 10 miles (45 mins) to work from the get go. As and when your fitness improves, you can opt for less and less assistance, until you achieve your personal goal. At which point you’re free to trade your e-bike back in (although we’ve never met someone who wants to.)

Variable assistance also lets you decide when you want to exert yourself. If it’s a faux pas to show up at your place of work ‘glowing’ with perspiration, then you might want to set the assistance to ‘high’ on the way there to stay fresh, and low on the way back for the workout - if your electric bike offers variable assistance that is (Juicy Bikes do).

People with the kinds of injuries or mobility-limiting illnesses that would usually completely prohibit cycling (like arthritis) can improve their health on an e-bike without the unhelpful strain. Feel free to read some of our customer reviews for more than a few good examples.

 

3. It’s Exercise in Disguise

An e-bike slots into your life in a lot of different places. Commutes, day trips, jaunts to the shops – they’re all made less arduous by an electric motor. Without the prospect of being obstructed by a steep hill, or bullied around by traffic (the quick and easy acceleration of an e-bike works wonders for your confidence on the road), you might find yourself swapping more and more car journeys for e-bike ones. These short, day-to-day journeys that you used to take by car now contribute to your overall fitness.

Exercise becomes part of everyday activity with an electric bike

Divorcing exercise from everyday living simply isn’t efficient. Just think of the person who drives to the gym to run on the treadmill. Since your trip to the corner shop to buy milk and a paper now constitutes what the authorities call ‘moderate exercise’, and you’re getting there faster than you would by car (e-bikes trump cars at journeys of under 3 miles), you can be sure that you’re getting the most out of your day. Though you might miss the exercise of placing a coin in a parking meter (maybe that's what a shakeweight is...)

 

4. It’s Good for Your Brain

It’s common knowledge that exercise increases the number of blood vessels available to a given muscle. Usefully, the same is true for your brain – regular aerobic exercise (the sort gained by cycling on an electric bike) means a higher density of blood vessels throughout your grey matter. So a regular cyclist can expect what is effectively a physiologically ‘younger’ brain thanks to a better supply of oxygen and nutrients. What’s more, the same pedalling triggers neurons to fire which stimulates their increased production, so you can expect many more of those, too.

 

5. It’s Good for Your Soul

While scientists aren’t settled on the exact mechanisms, it’s generally accepted that semi-frequent exercise can work as well as even antidepressants and psychotherapy in treating moderate depression, and a recent study showed that even 20 to 30 minutes of light exercise a day can prevent it over the long term. The same problems arise, however – there’s very little room in the schedule of the modern worker to get in even a 20 minute session. So an electric bike can easily help you on your way to getting a serotonin boost. The first step towards become a full-blown activewear-sporting endorphin junkie. It's just another habit that you need to start.

So if you’re looking for a stick-withable way to de-stress, improve your memory, sleep better, feel better and lose weight, all on your own terms, all the while having fun and going places, then might we recommend one of our fabulous electric bikes?
