How to ride a bicycle/electric bicycle


LESOOS introduces riding an electric bike

There are many options for cycling/electric bikes, allowing you to easily choose the option that best suits your needs and preferences. Let's take a look at some of the more popular indoor and outdoor bike/electric bike options.

Do you like to exercise indoors?

Here are a few ways to ride a bicycle/electric bike indoors:

Fixed class. Whether you own a stationary bicycle/electric bicycle or use a bicycle/electric bicycle in the gym, you can get an excellent workout tailored to your needs. Many programmable options allow you to customize your exercise based on the speed, intensity, and duration required.

According to data from Harvard University, the number of calories burned by riding a stationary bicycle at a "medium" speed varies with a person's weight.

The medium speed is approximately 12 to 13.9 miles per hour. In a 30-minute period, the following are calories burned by average weight:

• 125 lbs: 210 calories

• 155 lbs: 260 calories

Rotating class. If you need someone to encourage you to continue exercising, this may be a good choice. Reliable sources of research also show that, compared to regular cycling/electric bicycles, spinning bikes are equally effective in improving physical health and changing the body.

trolley. If you can’t use ordinary stationary bicycles/electric bicycles, manual bicycles/electric bicycles may be just tickets to some calorie-consuming aerobic exercise. This machine is driven by your arms, not your legs.

If you go this way, you must make sure that you can use a stationary bike/electric bike or a trolley. If you don’t have your own equipment, you may want to consider joining a gym or community center.

If you prefer to take your bicycle/electric bike outdoors

you have a variety of options, such as road bikes/electric bikes, mountain bikes/electric bikes, or mountain bikes/electric bikes. You can even give up the car and try to go to work on a bicycle/electric bike or run errands on a bicycle/electric bike.

When riding a bicycle outdoors, a person may burn more calories. Cycling outdoors at a moderate speed may burn the following calories in 30 minutes:

• 125 lbs: 240 calories

• 155 lbs: 298 calories

• 185 pounds: 355 calories

Some people may choose to do BMX or mountain biking. This tends to cause a person to burn more calories because the person may climb mountains and navigate rough terrain.

According to data from Harvard University, a person burns the following calories based on their weight when riding a mountain bike for 30 minutes:

• 125 lbs: 255 calories

• 155 lbs: 316 calories

• 185 lbs: 377 calories

But this cannot be a one-off. If you want to use this type of exercise to lose weight, you need to ride a bicycle/electric bike as part of your daily exercise.

You can also use various apps to track your mileage or intensity. Using fitness tracking apps can also help you stay motivated to achieve specific goals.

One disadvantage of outdoor riding is that you need to follow more safety precautions to ensure safety. Humid, icy or uneven road conditions, hot or humid weather, and unpredictable traffic conditions all make outdoor cycling less safe than indoor cycling.

How to ride a bicycle/e-bike safely

Cycling/electric bikes, especially outdoors, may bring certain risks. In order to stay safe when riding a bicycle/electric bike, please be sure to follow the following safety tips:

Wear a helmet. This may be self-evident, but the helmet can protect your head (and your brain) in the event of a collision or fall. Make sure it fits snugly against your head. Ideally, choose a brightly colored helmet that is easy for others to see.

Riding a single gear. If you like to ride a bike/electric bike with friends, let one person lead the way. Followers should leave some space between the two.
Drive on the right side of the road. You want to pedal in the same direction as car traffic. In the United States, Canada, and other countries where cars drive on the right, be sure to ride on the right side of the road.

Use gestures. Let drivers and other passengers on the road know that you intend to turn or take other actions.

Give up electronic products. Don't wear headphones or anything that may affect your hearing of other vehicles around you.

Watch out for road hazards. Uneven terrain, potholes, standing water, and other potential hazards can be dangerous, so be aware of them.
Take care of your bicycle/electric bike. Through regular maintenance and spot checks, ensure that your bicycle/electric bicycle is in the best condition to ensure that the chain, wheels, brakes and other components are in good working condition.

Trying to lose weight
Bottom line


If you are trying to lose weight, or want to maintain the weight loss you are trying to achieve, then riding a bicycle/electric bike may be a good way to achieve this goal.

In order to maximize weight loss and burn fat, try increasing the intensity or duration of cycling/electric bike exercise. Interval training and cross training can also help lose weight and burn fat.

The length and intensity of your riding are the main factors in how many calories you burn. If you have little or no activity in the beginning, cycling for 15 minutes a day or 30 minutes a few times a week is an excellent way to improve your health and may reduce your weight.

Once you get used to moderate cycling, increase the intensity interval, which is better for burning calories.
