Say goodbye to the winter blues! Stay cheerful during the cold time of year.

1. Set a long-term goal

Set yourself a long-term goal that will keep you motivated to be active in winter. For example, how about taking part in a race in the summer? Or would you like to master steep mountain passes on your next holiday? Maybe you would simply like to improve your fitness levels in the new year? So, all you need to do is get onto your FLYER e-bike and ride off. Think about how easy the upcoming challenge will be if you train regularly now.


2. Escape the winter?

Many cyclists do what migratory birds do and move to warmer climes in winter. Escape the cold winter and enjoy fantastic cycling holidays on the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, such as La Palma, Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Madeira. Even countries closer to home, such as Italy, Spain and Portugal, offer great cycling conditions in winter. Rent a FLYER e-bike and nothing will stand in the way of your down time.


3. Go to work on two wheels rather than four wheels.

Even if it is cold, going to work by e-bike will make you happier and allow you to start your day feeling satisfied. And commuting with the e-bike is quite easy. If cold weather is a deterrent to you, we have put together some tips for you for e-biking in the winter.


4. A bit of snacking is allowed.

We all know that chocolate makes us feel good. However, there are also healthier mood-boosters: grapes, bananas, pineapple, and even fish stimulate the release of the feel-good chemical serotonin. Indulged in too much chocolate? After a spin on your FLYER e-bike, you’ll feel better again.


5. Always remain active.

Are the roads icy and making e-biking difficult? Look for an alternative type of exercise such as jogging or skiing. A walk in the fresh air is enough to banish tiredness and a bad mood. 30 minutes of light exercise a day is all it takes to feel good during the dark time of year.
