I have an Electra Amsterdam 3 speed, no problem to do 20+ miles on it. Where these lay-back style frames struggle is large hills, because you can't get out of the saddle to push hard. But if you don't plan to tackle large hills, you should be just fine on an electra and yes it will give you a good work out. I like the fact that I can touch the ground with a flat foot while in the saddle of the electra, makes it excellent for the crowded boardwalks at the shore where you might have to dodge lots of obstacles like kids and walkers and tourists. Also an excellent rail trail rider.
