I have an electric bike. I ride 5 or 6 times a week for aprox 6 miles. I find it's a great stress buster. Does anyone else do this?

Takes a little getting used to, especially when you first set off as it feels like it's running away from you. I got used to mine within a week. Going up hills is where I would struggle on my usual bike but on the electric bike it's no bother. I cycle 5/6 miles a day and my physical fitness and body tone are improving all the time. Some people think that you don't peddle on an electric bike, but I pedal all the time and the motor assists me on hills. Hope this helps you.

I've had my Electric bike now for 10 months and it's really helped me to build my stamina up. I ride it 2 days and then ride my other bike on the 3rd day. I used to struggle a lot but find that my core strength is so much better now and I put that down to to my Electric Bike making it possible for me to build my stamina/ strength up gradually. With an Electric Bike you can set it so that you ride it with more or less resistance depending on the terrain and how you feel. I love it and it is definitely not a cop out.

Hia I had my bike delivered in Jan (016)
I called it an electric bike but the assistant at the shop
corrected me and called it a Hybrid.
Without a shadow of doubt it is one the best purchases
I have ever made!
I have a disability but it is getting worse as I am getting
older, so I started to bike to strengthen my leg and get some cardio fitness. But it was real hard work.
To cut a long story short I bought one and it was very
expensive, but at least I got some mobility in my leg.
I also do forty to fifty miles a week, and I love it.
Seriously I think that they will, not take over normal
traditional bikes, but will become very popular!
