Moderate bicycle riding??
2 Replies
mustangsh - January 18

I started riding a OLD ten speed bike in the fall but very moderate riding.No major hills or fast riding and would ride a half of mile or so.I had to stop riding because of winter but I got a new bike for Christmas. I really enjoy riding and wanted to know if anyone has tried this consistently for exercise and did it help FMS or hurt. I know they say low impact excersie. Just asking????

I have a exercise bike and i love it. I do it on a low tension for a bit and i have noticed it helps my pain. Sometimes i get that growing pain feelings in my legs and when i do the bike exercise it helps that feeling go away. Just keep it up it does help me and it might help you in the long run. It helps get the muscles stronger.
Good luck.

I can't ride a bike myself because I have very bad knees. But the way I handle exercise is, if I can do it, I do it, if I can't, I don't. In other words, if you are able to ride your bike, and since you were doing it before winter set in, I'd say you can, then do it. Everybody is different, and have more pain or less pain in certain areas than others. If bike riding works for you, that is great. Any exercise is good for you. If you find it causes you more pain than you can take, then you stop, but you know your own limits, and you know how far you can push them. Me, I swim 30 to 40 laps a day. And I do some resistance band training. The laps I can do very consistently, but the bands vary. Some days I can impress myself, some days I can hardly do anything. I just do what I can day to day. And if there's a day I can't handle it, I forgive myself. Just strive to be healthy. We have enough problems without losing our health too!
