FIRENZE IN FOOTBIKE
A “footbike” is a scooter with large wheels that can be utilized for transportation or as a fun way to get some exercise. The front wheel is generally larger than the back wheel, and there is a platform from which the rider can stand and kick off the ground. Footbikes are an excellent means of exercise and require very little maintenance. No matter your age, a footbike can make you feel like a kid again!
Like with all forms of exercise, footbiking burns calories! The amount of calories burned lies somewhere in between those consumed during bicycling and running. Footbiking can easily be incorporated into many different lifestyles and rarely results in injury. Men can reach a top speed of 30km/hr over a distance of 40km; women traveling over a distance of 40km can travel at a top speed of 27km/hr. The number of calories that one can burn depends on his or her weight and physical ability. A sample chart is shown below for a person with relatively good physical fitness and a decent kicking technique for the footbike.
*Calories Burned from Footbiking for a person who weighs approximately 143lbs
*Calories Burned from Footbiking for a person who weighs approximately 165lbs
