Cycling is one of the most effective forms of cardiovascular exercise a person can do. It offers a lot of benefits including strengthening of the bones and muscles, decrease in stress levels, improves heart rate, and burning off excess cholesterol which helps in weight loss.
Riding your Boogie Bike is an excellent choice for leisure riding since it requires you to exert energy and it’s a great way to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. Did you know that riding an E-Bike can help you burn up to 390 calories every hour? If you want to get more of a workout, simply reduce the pedal-assist setting.
E-Bikes are especially fun for riders who enjoy cycling but have joint pain, physical disabilities, or mobility issues (check out our new attachment for those with limited range of motion here). Cycling offers a low-impact exercise that is kind to your joints while providing a high-calorie burn. The best part is, you'll be able to ride further for longer periods of time and you would be able to see more on your ebike because you have more power reserves to draw on!
While Summer is the perfect time to ride your ebike, that shouldn’t stop you from riding in any weather condition. All you need is a well-maintained ebike and proper gear, and you should still be able to get the workout you need from your daily commute. You can always adjust the level of workout you get by using the pedal assist and throttle on your Boogie Bike.
Riding regularly gets your body moving and your heart rate up, even when you’re using the highest setting of the pedal assist. The longer you ride, the greater your cardiovascular endurance will get and the easier it will be to pedal due to increased resistance.
Ebike Riding is Not Cheating!
There are some people who believe that riding an ebike is cheating. Ebike riders actually ride more! According to some studies, ebikes provide similar workout benefits as traditional bikes. Ebike riders, on the other hand, have a more enjoyable ride. When you enjoy an activity, you tend to do it more often. And when you ride frequently, you get more workouts than you would on a regular bike.
Exercise shouldn’t feel like a chore. Even if you’re incredibly fit, your muscles will become tired. When you're exhausted, it can be difficult to get back on your bike. An ebike like the Boogie Bike allows you to keep riding while giving your tired legs a break. You can also go faster and further, making longer trips more appealing, especially when your time is limited.
For those who have rarely ridden a bike before, ebikes offer up a whole new experience. While you may not be used to cycling 5-10 miles at a time, the electric assist allows you to effortlessly cover these distances – a terrific way to gain endurance and confidence.
So, plan a get-together with friends, rearrange your date night, and get your kids’ ebikes to instill positive habits in them from a young age. Ebikes are ready for any trip – and may even give you the motivation you need to be active and stay active!
Annoying sounds and disc brakes seem to be unavoidable in the biking world. I’d like to share a recent story of a trip I took with my wife, and how MY brakes started to annoy me, and what can be done about it.
We often get the question , “why are you better than other ebikes?” Or, “what makes you different? I am looking at so many, what makes you better?” At Boogie, we love to make a great product at a fair price and take care of you like you lived down the road, but we are not great at tooting our own horn.
We have been getting a lot of requests for trikes lately, so I thought it would be a good idea to walk through our journey trying to produce a trike that Boogie Bikes could be proud of and our customers would love…..spoiler alert, we are not there yet!
