Bikes for Seniors
Are you ready to peddle your way into an active retirement? Sixthreezero has a variety of bikes for seniors that are easy on your body and make trips to the farmer’s market fun. No matter your level of experience with bicycles, you can find a ride that works for you. Even better, our bikes are affordable for seniors on a budget.
Finding a Bike for Your Body Type
Thanks to our Body Fit tool, it’s simple to find a bike that meets your specific needs. Just enter your height and weight and see which bicycles are ideal for your body type. Finding bicycles for older adults can be a challenge on other sites because many of them are built for strenuous adventures. At sixthreezero, we feature a blend of 21-speed and 3-speed bikes (and everything in between) that meet the needs of any activity level.
Perfect Bikes for Leisurely Rides
You’ve heard of sailing into the sunset, but riding toward the horizon is just as relaxing. Many of our comfort bicycles for seniors are designed to be ergonomic. City bikes and cruisers let you sit upright, with good posture, so your ride is easier on your back and shoulders. You’ll always be comfortable during your journey when you choose a leisure bike from sixthreezero.
Protect Your Joints and More with Better Bikes for Seniors
As we age, it’s harder for our joints to absorb high-impact exercising, like running or even power walking. Biking is a good low-intensity option that burns calories without damaging your knees. If you were a lifelong jogger who is trying to find a new way to stay active – cycling is a good place to start. With approval from your doctor, you may be able to bike several miles each week. What’s more, cycling can strengthen the muscle groups that help you with balance (like your quadriceps). Having your own bike also provides a sense of autonomy, especially if you’re no longer a fan of driving in traffic. And those endorphins can turn your day around.
Get to Know the Potential of Your New Bike
How far can you really go on your new bicycle? You might be surprised? If you’re getting back on the saddle in your golden years after being away from a bicycle for many years – it can be overwhelming. Despite that age-old saying “It’s like riding a bike,” relearning to cycle can take some time and patience.
You won’t want to start your cycling journey with a 10-mile jaunt around the community – but you can get there. Some of the best bikes for seniors are recommended for up to 18-20 mile rides. Other cool facts about bicycles made with seniors in mind? You can go as slowly as you please, but if you feel like picking up some steam you can reach almost 20 miles per hour on some bikes. You can also purchase a model with attachment points. This allows you to add a basket, bell, and other accessories that make your bike more useful for your needs.
Just because you’re in your later years doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the world – in fact, this is the best time to remain active and get to know your community in a whole new way! Whether you’re cruising up and down a beach boardwalk or riding to your city park, a new body fit bike lets you get there in style and comfort. There’s no better time to find your new bicycle than today!
