An electric bike gives you a renewed sense of freedom, leading to a more positive, optimistic outlook on life that enriches your physical, mental, spiritual and emotional well-being.
At heart, then, an e-bike is good for mind, body and soul, encouraging you to broaden your horizons, rediscover the great outdoors and redeem many of the positives that go hand in hand with hitting the open road or tackling a trail that truly tests you. The perfect lifestyle choice for the more independent, thoughtful, and health conscious individual, an electric bike could be just what the doctor ordered. Adding power to your pedal and years to your life.
Why, in recent tests undertaken at the University of Colorado in Boulder, USA, researchers gave a group of out-of-shape men and women electric bikes and suggested they begin riding them to work. At the end of the trial, most volunteers had found the whole experience so much fun they’d actually spent 50% longer in the saddle than the research required. More significantly, the volunteers were already healthier, with greater aerobic fitness, better blood sugar control, and, as a group, a trend toward less body fat.
Electric bikes aren’t motorcycles
Now, does riding an e-bike actually count as exercise? Absolutely. Electric bikes aren’t motor cycles and even with the battery switched on, you still need to pedal all the time. It’s simply nice to know that if you do start to flag, feel your age, or face a particularly tough climb, you can get out of trouble with the flick of a switch. An electric bike like the range developed by MARK 2 can turn mountains into molehills, making headwinds a breeze and long journeys a jaunt. Ideal for anyone who wants to get into the saddle, or back into the saddle, but is daunted by low levels of fitness, age-related limitations, long distances or steep hills, a MARK 2 could be the electric bike for you.
You’re part of a club
Tarmac or trail, off-road or on, MARK 2’s X-Cross or Scrambler electric bikes are highly recommended entry-level options for anyone who wants to cycle their way to health, fitness and a longer life. Is an electric bike like the MARK 2 expensive? Ask yourself a different question, can you put a price tag on the physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual benefits of rediscovering your joie de vivre? The answer is that investing in a MARK 2 electric bike puts freedom at your fingertips, and that’s priceless.
The more personable approach taken by the team behind MARK 2 electric bikes also means you’re made to feel part of a club. A very real sense that you’re among fellow free spirits who embrace change and recognise that what’s best for mind, body and soul often comes from breaking new ground. It’s this camaraderie, support and togetherness that makes MARK 2 such a welcome addition to the growing electric bike community.
