Let’s face it, we could all be a little healthier and exercise a little more than we actually do! In the UK we are now more aware than ever on the benefits of regular exercise. It can help keep the body strong, flexible and keep weight under control. It also releases endorphins, which is the body’s natural way of making us feel better. A little bit of exercise can go a long way, but it’s often that first step that’s hardest! That’s what makes electric bikes so revolutionary. Thousands of people who had previously struggled to exercise regularly, are finding their way to fitness and a healthier lifestyle on an ebike!

Riding Electric Bikes for Health

Ebikes have to be one of the most fun and enjoyable forms of exercise. There is nothing quite like riding down a nice stretch of road with the sun beaming in the sky, the wind blowing in your face and the fresh air in your lungs. Some may find it surprising that a battery powered bicycle can actually improve your fitness, but we have countless feedback from VOLT™ buyers who have drastically improved their fitness as a result. Just a quick internet search will also provide many stories and recommendations for using electric bikes for health reasons, like this article from Men’s Fitness: Why You Need An Electric Bike

Not only can these bikes improve your fitness they are also great for people who are recovering from injury or suffering health problems. The older you get the more restricted certain sports and exercises can become. This makes it more important to find new ways to regain and maintain your strength and fitness. An ebike can be the perfect solution for this.

One big advantage of the VOLT™ range is that they are built to be ridden with or without any motor assistance. We use high specification components throughout the bikes, Bafang’s superb quality motors and Volt’s Very own V-Wave technology guaranteeing a smooth ride either with or without power. You can choose how much assistance you want from 5 different settings on the LCD display and decide how much or little help you want.

For example you can keep the setting on low or nothing when you are on the flats so you are still putting a lot of effort in yourself and when you come to a steep heart pounding hill begin to gradually increase the power assist so you can conquer it easily. This has to be one of the best things about an electric bike as it means that you can enjoy the whole of your cycle and you don’t have to worry about that big hill on the way home.

Electric bikes really have revolutionised cycling and most definitely put the fun back into it and VOLT™ offer the best bikes to cater for all riders. Why not arrange a test ride today at one of our local dealers.
