Health Benefits of Electric Bikes that Women Must Know

Updated on March 13, 2021

While ladies electric bikes are gaining popularity for the convenience and the ‘cool’ image associated with them, there is something more rewarding about electric bikes. Biking is basically categorized as an ‘aerobic’ exercise that is immensely beneficial for your cardiovascular health. If you are wondering that electric bikes might be less beneficial for health than riding a traditional bike, then you need not worry. According to a study conducted at the University of Basel- Switzerland, riding an ebike is just as good as regular bikes at improving fitness. In fact, while riding an electric bike, you get the leverage of pedal assistance that helps you with better grip and balance against winds and rough terrains.

We understand how busy an ideal woman’s everyday life is, particularly the life of a married woman with kids. However, the health benefits of riding ladies’ electric bikes will outweigh your impulse to run errands that do not add value at all. Here are some health pertaining benefits that emphasize why you should invest in a ladies electric bike.

Electric Bikes nourish your mental health

Women fall easy prey to the constant mood swings and depression, thanks to the nasty hormones. You can take a ride on your e-bike which will eventually regulate your hormones. For women who have just been through their delivery process and are either suffering from postpartum depression or need to shed some weight, ladies electric bikes can help you. We understand how timeliness  and the need for speed can be important for new mothers and that is why we recommend riding an e-bike as it tends to take you to places much faster, covering long distances timely. With an e-bike, you expose yourself to nature whilst carrying out your workout, which is far more therapeutic than confining yourself indoors. 

E bikes improves your cognitive function

Surprisingly, electric bikes have the same positive impact on your brain as it does on your muscles. When you ride a ladies electric bike, there is an increased blood flow to your brain, which brings in more nutrients and oxygen to the brain and increases the development of your brain cells by two or three times. Most people agree that e biking tends to improve your concentration span as well.

It is an anti-aging exercise

No one likes to grow old, it is as simple as that. But, one cannot defy the natural norm of aging. We have some hope for you. With a ladies electric bike, you can push your old age a little too far. By riding an e-bike regularly, you will push away the old age signs like sagging muscles, loose skin, poor cognition, low stamina and poor posture. Your ladies electric bike will not only make you look young but also increase your stamina. 

E bikes help regulate your sleep pattern

One of the reasons you are not able to have a sound sleep is your stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol tends to disrupt your regenerative, deep sleep. However, if you ride your lady’s electric bike regularly for at least thirty minutes, you will probably notice how cycling helps your body to get rid of cortisol, thereby improving your sleep pattern.

It improves memory

As mentioned earlier, biking develops new cells in the hippocampus. Hippocampus is that region of the brain that regulates memories (long-lasting ones), learning experiences and emotions. New cell development and increased blood flow to the hippocampus mean better memory.

Promotes muscle health

The obvious one! When you are riding your ladies electric bike, you are still pedalling. This means you are countering the resistance which consequently does not only lead to fat-burning but also muscle development and strengthening. The majority of the muscle development happens around calves, quads and hamstrings.

Reduces the chances of binge eating

According to the study conducted at the University of Bath, people who worked out had relatively less patterns of overeating. That is because when you ride an electric bike, your blood sugar levels are regulated and so is your metabolism. That is why there are less cravings for you to binge eat and put on unnecessary weight.

Cycling can be synonymous to Meditation

Sounds so unconventional, right? Hear us out. Meditation is not just being in a state of partial sleep. You can even actively meditate when cycling. Here are the steps you need to follow to meditate while riding your ladies electric bike. Firstly, you need to focus on the rhythm of your breathing. Second, focus on the movement of your legs, the wind that passes by your face, and the sound of the birds chirping. Submit yourself mentally to the nature around you and you will notice how calm and light-headed you end up feeling. Isn’t that quite healing as well? 

Whilst these are just a handful of benefits of riding an electric bike, there are other numerous benefits of riding an electric bike that you will explore once you are out on your wheels. You will feel clear-headed, your productivity and punctuality will improve and you will stay in shape above all other things. If you do not like to be on wheels alone, ask your friends or neighbours around you to accompany and you can probably run a ladies marathon. You can also develop a group goal of staying fit and accompany each other in cycling to your favourite spot.
