Benefits of eBikes for Exercise and Fitness

Many of us are always on the lookout for new ideas to keep fit and get more exercise. It can be tricky to pack more time for fitness into a busy schedule, and sometimes the idea of getting tired and sweaty from exercising can really put people off. It certainly means that lots of people may not be able to ride their bike to work, for example, since they’d be exhausted by the time they arrived! So are electric bikes, best known as eBikes, a good solution to this problem?

In short, we think the answer for most people would be a resounding yes! In essence, ebikes are not dissimilar to normal bicycles at all, but they have the added benefit of an electric powered motor to assist you as and when you need it. Usually you can completely disengage the power assistance when you want to ride your bike under your own steam, so there’s no loss there in terms of exercise. Examples of major brands for ebikes in the UK include BH Emotion, Batribike, KTM, Freego, Hiabike, Pedelec and Powabike. Read More →
