Stay Fit over 60 with an Electric Bike

If you’re looking for a way to stay healthy, fit and active, well into old age, an electric bike may be the answer.

How can electric bikes benefit me and my family?

According to the NHS website, ‘some older adults (aged 65 and over) are known to spend 10 hours or more sitting or lying down, making them the most sedentary population group’. If this sounds like you, or if it sounds like something you’re planning to avoid, an electric bike could be your ticket to a more fruitful and active life, away from the armchair.

If you’re wondering how an electric bike could be more beneficial than other forms of exercise, we are happy to explain. First of all electric bikes provide assistance, allowing you to ease into the activity at your own pace. Depending on how fit you already are, taking on a new form of exercising can be intimidating. An electric bike puts you in control; you choose how far you want to push yourself, how fast and how far you want to go. Since electric bikes allow you to exercise within your own comfort zone, you are more likely to enjoy the activity, and keep pursuing it.

Cycling is an activity that can be enjoyed alone or with others, but if you’re in a group of various ages and fitness levels, it can be difficult to keep a steady pace and all cycle together. Electric bikes allow all fitness levels to easily enjoy a cycling trip together, so you can enjoy a day out with the grandkids or family, without the fear of lagging behind.

Where can I go on my electric bike?

To legally ride an electric bike in the UK, the bike must meet certain requirements, otherwise the bike must be registered taxed and insured, however if this sounds like too much of a headache for you, choosing an electric bike that does meet these requirements is easy, and you will be free to cycle in both urban and rural areas.
