Actually, almost any sport will burn almost the same calories an hour if done at similar intensity. It's your capacity to do aerobic stuffNope, not buying it. You mean to tell me if you put an emtb and an analog mtb on the same trail for 2 hrs, that the eeb can burn as many calories as the analog? You cant believe this. Im not talking about with the motor off because thats just dumb. Its illogical to put in the “same effort” when there is pedal assist.
Look, I love my ebike as much as anyone here. But the workout isnt the same. Yes, you can still maintain weight or even lose weight (switching from an analog to an eeb) with an ebike IF YOU:
1. Cut calories
2. Eat healthier
3. Workout more
4. Ride longer
5. Etc, etc, etc
But 1-5 above are all in additions to the previous, which is just riding an analog.
