Not only do ebikes offer a quick and easy way to get around town, but research shows they also have tremendous health benefits to offer as well.
An article in Forbes Magazine notes that ebikes are a healthy alternative for car commuters, and can also improve cardiorespiratory fitness for physically inactive individuals, adding that pedal assist technology can be the trigger for getting previously inactive people on bikes.
The benefits of ebikes are not limited to physical well being, as reports show show that older adults who used e-bikes for exercise had greater benefit to their brain health than those who did all the pedalling manually. Of course, all forms of cycling can result in improved executive functioning — tasks such as memory, planning, problem solving and impulse control. This is contributed to “engagement with the outdoor environment”.
