Calorie consumption e-bike

Losing calories with electric power

Are you wondering how many calories you actually lose on an e-bike? Then you've come to the right place: at this point we not only explain how many calories you can get rid of on the e-bike saddle, but also why this sport is so healthy.

Why e-biking is so healthy

Basically, it should be noted that the positive effects of cycling without electronic support also apply to e-biking. Only the intensity of the activity might be lower, but ultimately it also depends on how much support you need from your e-bike.

Cycling and therefore also e-biking is easy on the joints, strengthens your muscles and stimulates the cardiovascular system and blood circulation. You will also improve your coordination. All these positive effects already appear after about 10 minutes, so you and your body will benefit also from short e-bike excursions.

Because e-biking is easy on the joints, the activity is also suitable for people who weigh more kilos but want to get rid of them at the same time. How many calories you actually burn while e-biking depends on several factors, which we now want to explain.

Factors that affect calorie consumption when e-biking

As mentioned at the beginning, calorie consumption when e-biking depends on the intensity with which you pedal. And of course, it also depends on how much electronic support you need when you are out and about. Someone who can pedal harder and with a high frequency while also choosing a low support level will burn more calories than someone who coasts along comfortably and also chooses a higher electric support level.

The following additional factors influence actual calorie consumption when e-biking:

  • Personal characteristics: age, gender, weight and fitness level
  • Bike route: terrain, slope and difficulty of the route
  • Wind & weather: increased calorie consumption in headwind and cool temperatures

As you can see, various factors can influence calorie consumption when e-biking. And yet at least one reference value can be set, which we don't want to withhold from you.

For orientation: how high is calorie consumption when riding an e-bike

According to sports medicine, anyone who rides an e-bike for an hour burns around 300 calories. It should be mentioned once again that this is an approximate value, since various factors - including above all electric motor support of the e-bike - determine how high calorie consumption actually is.
