Some good bike choices for senior women include the EZ boarding bike, a recumbent bike, an adult tricycle and a tandem bike, reports AARP. Bicycles designed for senior women cater to the needs of elderly people who desire comfort and low-impact exercise.
These lifestyle bikes have features that include low, U-shaped crossbars for easier boarding and mounting; a sturdy frame; and, in some cases, three wheels for better balance and low gears for easy pedaling. Ergonomic hand grips, padded seats and shock absorbers in the front fork increase the comfort of the rider.
Recumbent bikes and tricycles are suitable for seniors with balance problems, as they offer a stable ride. A tandem bike may need a bit of practice before riders learn how to use it. Electric bikes are a good option for seniors who need assistance when pedaling.
