The exercise bike is one of the most popular home workout pieces of equipment due to the workout results, reduced impact on the joints and the small footprint required. Originally conceived by Dr. Keene Dimmick in 1970, the first electronic stationary bike was built and marketed by the new patent owners Ray Wilson & Augie Neato who titled the bike the LifeCycle in 1991. Much like that of the elliptical, Upright bikes and Recumbent bikes are what many people think of when they reference low impact cardio. Upright bikes are meant to simulate road bikes and recumbent bikes allow for the same workout with even less impact on the knees and lower back.
The main reason they have always been very popular pieces of cardiovascular equipment is because the exercise motion is very familiar to most people; you simply pedal as you would on a regular bike. You can set your own pace, and even read while exercising. Exercise Bikes are usually categorized in one of three categories: Recumbent Exercise Bikes, Upright Exercise Bikes, and Test & Rehabilitation Cycles which would include the distinctive upper body ergometers (UBE) aka hand bikes. One of the best benefits of using an indoor upright or recumbent exercise bike other than the cardio benefit is that there are no interruptions like that of a road bike. Drivers, dogs, road hazards and even the occasional ice cream truck won't be able to distract your workout. Unlike spin bikes and group cycles where you need an instructor or specific training program, you can blast your playlist or read your iPad while you pedal towards your fitness goals.
