They allow you to complete an intense workout as you can stand up & pedal as if you are cycling up an incline. Upright exercise bikes are ideal for a short, vigorous cardio vascular workouts as well as the long distance ride.
Upright exercise bikes are generally cheaper then recumbent exercise bikes and they will take up less room in your home fitness gym or commercial gym.

Exercise bikes & adjustable resistance
Exercise bikes provide adjustable resistance in one of two ways - a tension belt or magnetic resistance. Magnetic resistance is the preferred choice for more expensive exercise bikes as the resistance is smoother. They are also quieter in operation and you can choose from manual adjustment, found on cheaper upright exercise bikes or by push button control found on the more expensive electro magnetic models.
Exercise bikes & heart rate monitors
The main purpose of exercising on an exercise bike (unless you are using it for rehabilitation) is to increase your heart rate. Most bikes will have a pulse grip point on the handlebars, which monitors your heart rate while exercising & display this information on the display console. Exercise bikes at the top end of the market will offer pulse driven workouts - the exercise bike will adjust your workout intensity based on readings from the built in heart rate monitor. A very useful feature.
Exercise bikes & programmes
Expect a minimum of 3 built-in workout programmes from your upright exercise bike & when you become more familiar with the equipment & your fitness, you can program workouts yourself. Both during & at the end of your workout, you may read information displayed on the electronic console on your heart rate, duration & distance of your exercise and total calories burned.
