Electric Bikes and Your Heart

Electric Bikes and Your Heart

2 minute read

In our current world of social distancing and busy schedules, it can be a challenge to take care of ourselves. Thankfully, many newer innovations can assist. From food delivery and subscription services that bring healthier choices to our door, to electric bikes helping us enjoy exercise and the outdoors. 

Why Electric Bikes are Good for Your Heart

Electric bikes provide a lower-impact workout compared to a conventional bike, making them an ideal health partner for riders of any age, ability, or lifestyle. With the introduction of pedal-assist electric mountain bikes, for example, riders of varying abilities can spend more time riding the same trails together, and togetherness has a health benefit for our hearts. Additionally, less exertion means this exercise does not feel like exercise, which leads to more time spent on the bike!

Improved Mental Health

Regular physical activity can help improve your mental health, which in turn supports your heart. Biking can promote a better night's sleep, reduce stress, and give us the space we need to clear our heads and build our confidence.

30 Minutes A Day

Your heart needs physical activity each week to stay healthy. Just 30 minutes every day to get your heart rate up will help improve your cardiovascular health. So biking, whether on a traditional bike or an electric bike, will help! 

Remember this from the NHLBI: Aim for at least 2½ hours of physical activity each week—that’s just 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. In addition, do muscle strengthening exercises 2 days a week. Can’t carve out a lot of time in your day? Don’t chuck your goal, chunk it! Try 10 or 15 minutes a few times a day. NHLBI’s Move More fact sheet has ideas to get and keep you moving.
