Electric Bikes can be a gentle and effective way to help you regain your fitness levels after a period of time in hospital, or after surgery or joint injury. On one of our electric bikes you can do as much or as little pedaling as you feel capable of. This means they can be an ideal rehabilitation tool, helping you to gradually tone and rebuild muscles without causing too much stress on the joints.
Electric bikes are an excellent choice for rehabilitation exercise for people who have had:Knee Surgery Hip Replacement Joint Injury Muscle Injury Broken Bones Or just as a way to gradually improve fitness levels at a pace that suits you!
Electric bikes are also a fantastic way to encourage people that may find pedaling up steep hills a bit too challenging. With pedal assist and off-road throttle control, getting up daunting hills is effortless. With electric bikes, you can get the whole family out for a bike-ride, including people who wouldn't be able to face the effort of traditional cycling!
Always take medical or appropriate professional advice before embarking on a fitness programme.
No one would argue with the fact that switching your commute from a car ride to a bike ride creates a host of benefits for both you and your surrounding environment. European governments warn the public about heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity; all of these can be combated by getting on your bike in the morning and commuting to work on two wheels instead of four. Exercise, even at moderate levels, helps to reduce stress and depression as well as improve mood and self-esteem.
The financial benefits to be gained from cycling can be quite substantial, saving users money on commuting (compared to public or personal motorised transport), parking charges and gym memberships. As well as money, bikes can save you time, avoiding traffic jams and enabling you to take shortcuts that cars are unable to access.
But could it be the small drawbacks that are preventing the majority of people from making the switch to cycling from other modes of transport? This is where the electric bike comes in. It provides all of the benefits of a regular bicycle, but with the added bonus of not arriving at work needing a shower since it helps to reduce the effort of pedalling uphill and into headwinds. You can still take exercise which helps you on your way to fulfilling government health recommendations, you are still lowering your carbon footprint, and saving money.
Electric bikes have no road tax, no insurance, no MOT, and no license plates. They are limited to a maximum speed under power of 15mph. As long as your cycle is within these limits, and you are over 14, you can ride your bike legally on UK roads with no restrictions.
On top of these benefits, the electric bike compared to the traditional bicycle saves even more time because even though top speed is capped, electric bikes are able to keep a more constant speed, rather than slowing down on the tough or uphill stretches. This higher average speed actually makes electric bikes safer than conventional bicycles on the roads since fewer cars will overtake.
So electric bikes offer safety advantages over regular bicycles, save you more money on transport, are more user friendly; and still provide healthy exercise.
