Anything is better than nothing. Cycling is about as low of impact (on joints) exercise as you can get... swimming being the lowest.

So a great choice to start putting more workout than walking. Typically riding will get you easily into the mid 100s, while walking is generally low 100s.

This bike will either:

1. Last you forever because you don't take it past 45 min of riding.
2. Last until you decide to get serious and go longer distances.

Either way, you win!

Btw, you don't have to give up cute for functionality, Rivendall makes a near copy of that bike with serious riding ability. And then there is Retrotec, which makes a step through design that can do 100 miles, or go gravel roads, or even go off road. Retrotec is fully hand built, one at time by one guy, built to your taste.

A serious step up in price for both, so I am not suggesting you change your mind now, just wanted to give you a taste of what is in the art of the possible.
