The short answer is yes!

I had a Electra Townie 7D for about a year and rode up to 50 miles on a single ride and while it is not the most efficient way to ride those 50 miles, it works for me who like you needs something that will support my weight while trying to lose. I have lost over 80lbs since last June combining a health modified diet and riding 4 to 5 times a week. You need to get your heart rate up if you want to see results so a leisurely ride around the block probably won't get it done. I now have an Electra Townie 21D but plan on upgrading again next year when I've dropped another 75 to 80lbs to a road bike as an award for losing the weight. Good luck and stick with it. If you like the bike you'll ride it more!
