Electric bikes are detrimental to your health like Netflix and cigarettes. While electric bikes can help those with physical disabilities related from old age or health related causes, electric bikes could negate any health benefits related to bike commuting. Your 20-40 minute medium effort during bike commute (400 minutes/+6hrs – 5 days/week) disappears once you start using an electric bike.  You might as well buy a proper moped, motorcycle or just keep driving that pollution machine.

 

Pros to bike commuting:

  • Multiple health benefits
  • Improved fitness levels
  • Heart health
  • Lung health
  • Lowers risk of depression
  • Maintains health weight
  • maintain attractiveness

 

Cons to bike commuting by electric bike:

  • Heart health declines
  • Lung health declines
  • weight increases
  • attractiveness decreases
  • increased depression risk when a normal bike commuter passes you
  • increased guilt
  • range anxiety

 

Thinking about purchasing an electric bike? Think twice.
