Exercise Bikes in Oregon

Oregon MapMany people in Oregon have discovered the great cardiovascular exercise that can be gained by riding an exercise bike. Regularly cycling on an exercise bike strengthens heart and lungs, especially if resistance is increased and workouts are done with growing levels of intensity. Benefits of regular cardiovascular exercise include blood pressure regulation, decreased risk of chronic diseases, and ideal weight maintenance. In addition to physical health benefits, those who participate in regular exercise report increased feelings of emotional well-being. There are many physical and emotional benefits from regular physical exercise.

Oregon residents have multiple options when it comes to choosing the perfect exercise bike. The first factor to consider is the list of desired functions. The minimal features on any bike should include smooth handling, workout resistance, stability, and at least a one year warranty on parts and labor. Beyond that, the sky really is the limit when it comes to additional features. Some bikes offer built-in fans to keep the cyclist cool, iPod connectivity with built-in speakers, a wireless heart-rate monitor, and built-in magazine racks. Others feature built-in workout programs and a hi-tech LED display panel that measures things like distance, speed, and calories burned. There are multiple options out there when it comes to accessories on an exercise bike, and they are offered in a wide variety of combinations.

Most exercise bikes are priced anywhere from $200 to $3,000. Many factors drive the cost, including quality and features. Regardless of price, a few things should be considered that are basic to any good exercise bike. First, the exercise bike needs to be stable, regardless of how intensely it is being ridden. A bike that wobbles or shakes is a safety hazard. Next, if young children will be present, choosing a bike with an enclosed chain is crucial. This will prevent little fingers from getting pinched. Last, make sure the bike is not excessively noisy. Inability to hear other sounds because of the loud bike could be unsafe to the rider and others in the vicinity. Keeping these things in mind when choosing an exercise bike will help the cycling experience to be more pleasant and safe.

The many benefits offered by exercise bikes are helping to increase popularity of home exercise equipment.
