American Heart Association has chosen February as its National Heart Month. While diet and genetics do play a role, it’s believed regular aerobic exercise is a key influence on heart health.
Electric bicycle brand Pedego says its bike allows you to pedal as much as you want. The colorful bikes boast the latest in electric bicycle technology and deliver a green alternative for transportation, exercise, and recreation.
According to Pedego, studies have shown that regular cyclists experience the general health of someone approximately 10 years younger. Cycling can also help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol and can even help fight cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
In fact, the company says, women who ride 20 miles per week may reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease by up to 50 percent. Plus, cycling can burn 500 calories per hour, helping cyclists lose or control their weight while improving their general fitness.
Pedego “pedal or not” models include the Comfort Cruiser, City Commuter and Trail Tracker. Hailing from Orange County, Calif., Pedego is an electric bicycle company with its bikes selling in more than 800 stores in 40 countries.
