LONDON, October 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
For the first time in years, the Paralympics saw equal, if not greater, publicity and coverage than the main Olympic games - inspiring disabled people the world over. Billed by the media as 'superhumans', the Paralympic athletes demonstrated exactly how sport and fitness inspired them to deal with their difficult situations and go on to achieve great success.
For many people living with a disability or a condition which affects their mobility, the day to day tasks of getting around and working independently can often be challenging and frustrating. Exercise presents a valuable opportunity to avoid the problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle including weight gain and muscle wastage and can help people with a temporary condition back on the road to recovery.
Electric bikes offer an opportunity for increased mobility - they enable the rider to do as much or as little as they wish, giving extra power when it's needed and allowing the rider to enjoy the freedom of getting about by bike whilst gently building up their fitness. As a proven way for people rehabilitating after long stays in hospital, electric bikes are a great step towards getting back to being fighting fit again. What's more, electric bikes give people the confidence to ride further and for longer without worrying about breathlessness and tiredness, therefore encouraging greater periods of exercise.
But cycling isn't just about physical fitness - there are huge benefits in terms of well-being too and an electric bike from 50cycles make the great outdoors far more accessible. Simply being out in the fresh air, amongst wildlife in the countryside and exploring far beyond the usual perimeters can greatly increase the quality of life for someone whose lack of mobility might otherwise hold them back.
