Is riding an electric bike more effective than using an ordinary bike, when you are in a weight loss program? First, you need to understand the difference between the two. An ordinary bike rider needs to pedal in order for the bike to move. The speed of the bike depends on how the rider hits the pedal. No doubt that it is a good exercise. Cyclists enjoy it while keeping themselves healthy.

On the other hand, an electric bike has a motor and a rechargeable battery pack. This means that it may be heavier to use than an ordinary bike. But since it is pedal-assisted, the rider does not need too much effort in pedalling. Now, how is it related to losing weight faster? Below are some of the advantages of using electric bike as part of your weight management routine.

You can travel faster

Electric bikes have a speed selector, wherein you can select the speed that you like. But if you want to do more manual pedalling, you can lower the speed. Since travelling faster is not a problem, you can exercise more. Obviously, you cannot travel faster in an ordinary bike as you go along because you are now tired.

You can travel longer distance

If you can travel faster, you can travel in a longer distance. Riding an electric bike when you go to far places is not a problem. Just make sure you buy the ones with longer battery life and you charge it properly before you leave the house. There are also a lot of long distance electric bikes to choose from.

You can reach higher grounds

You will not enjoy a traditional bike, if you are living in a place that has elevated roads or near a mountain. But with the electric bike, you can go to higher grounds with less effort. Going down is also not a problem because the motor turns off when you stop pedalling and they have strong brakes too.

You can rest while travelling

With an ordinary bike, your leg muscles will feel pain earlier than you expect. As a result, you will take more rests and eventually quit. Fortunately, this is not a problem if you are using an electric bike. This is because of the throttle option, which the rider can twist so that the bike can still run without pedalling.

Given the benefits mentioned above, Electric Bike World is ready to help you choose the right electric bike for you. Since 2007, our store has been specialising in affordable electric bikes such as LifeCycle Electric Bikes, Electric Road Bikes, Electric Mountain Bikes, and even Folding Electric Bikes.

By now it should be a given to most people that going on a trip does not mean having to disconnect from the world. It is perfectly possible to still use the internet for whatever your purpose is, and there are several options for you to choose from allowing you to stay connected whether you are sitting in your hotel or a coffee shop, or being mobile in a bus or train. You can even stay connected in the remotest of places as long as you are somewhere with cell phone coverage.

The only "black hole" in communications now seems to be in the air. With the "switch off your mobile devices" rule strictly enforced, and the on air phone service prohibitively expensive, you can forget about making calls, much less connecting to the internet. Or can you?

A few years ago, several airlines have begun to offer in flight Wi-Fi access, allowing you to do your business even when in the air. There is a small difference however, as in flight Wi-Fi is not exactly as good or as fast as the "normal" kind, and if not done right, not only won't you be able to use it properly; you will also be hogging the bandwidth from other people. So in order to effectively use the in-flight Wi-Fi, you will need to do a few things:

1. Pick the right airline
Not every airline offers in-flight Wi-Fi and those that do, do not make it available for every flight. Airlines that offer Wi-Fi include JetBlue, American Airlines, Delta, and Virgin American., but only for select flights. You will have to check first which routes or flights do have them.

2. Prep your browser
Using the internet in air will be a little slower as you won't have as much bandwidth as on land. So before you leave you will need to optimize your browser a little bit. First pick as good one, my personal favorite is Google Chrome, and disable any add-ons or unnecessary toolbars. Also disable anything that auto updates itself or runs in the background but uses the internet as well. The last thing you can do is to activate the pop-up blocker, to make sure only the essentials get to use the bandwidth.

3. Be stingy with your bandwidth
You will need to pare things down to the absolute minimum. It's not recommended for you to have multiple tabs open, browse image heavy sites, or stream anything. Try also to disable any sync and upgrade function.

Cloud storage applications or anything that syncs with your mobile device is competition for your bandwidth. Since you won't be using it in the air, it is best to disable them. A lot bandwidth only to the things you are actually using.

4. Getting more Wi-Fi
If you frequently use flights that offer Wi-Fi, you could try to avail of a monthly pass. This usually gets you unlimited access for a fixed rate and you send less in the long run than paying for your Wi-Fi every time you board the plane. Check also with the service provider GoGo for monthly passes, promotions or discount coupons.

These things should help with your connectivity. There might be things that were omitted, so feel free to do other things that might help. And keep in mind that in-flight Wi-Fi is by no means perfect. You still cannot use any VoIP applications in the airplane, and due to the limited bandwidth the use of the Wi-Fi is mostly restricted to business use only. But in a pinch it will help you get things done until you land and can find a better connection.

Finding the perfect place to stay while you are on vacation is not difficult, as long as you know where to look. While a lot of people may be interested in taking a look at luxury hotels, luxury bed and breakfasts can offer you a much more intimate experience. You will be able to take a look at the different choices that are on offer by simply following these resources. A bed and breakfast is usually going to provide you with breakfast included in the price, and sometimes even lunch and other meals. In order to find out the specifics, you are going to have to take a look at the company's website and see what features are included.

If there are any other extra features that you may be looking for, do not forget them. Places like Cheskin House B&B in Cumbria are going to provide you with a top-notch service, but you need to make sure that they have everything you want before you decide to go ahead and stay there.

The Internet

Most companies will advertise on the Internet these days. They will usually have a website. As well as this, there will be numerous travel websites that will offer you different bed and breakfasts depending on the region that you are staying in. By taking a look at the travel website, you will be able to find out what the best rates are. If you are on a budget, always make sure to look out for deals. The summer time is normally going to be 'peak' time for a lot of people, and this means that prices will be more expensive. The months following and leading up to the summer are usually going to be able to offer you a better deal.


Most places are going to have reviews written about them online. What you will need to do is make sure that you find a reputable review website. Take a look at what others have said about specific bed and breakfast. If there are too many negative reviews, then you may want to reconsider going there. It is a good idea to remember that everyone is going to have different tastes, so negative reviews do not always hold their weight.


If you have friends who have traveled to a specific area, then do not be afraid to ask them about the places they stayed in. In places like Cumbria, most people are going to look for a bed and breakfast in order to get a more intimate feeling when they stay there. By listening to what your friends have to say, you will be able to get a place that is more suited to your tastes. This is usually because your friends are going to know exactly what you want when you go on vacation.
