Bicycling is often recommended as a good way to get some exercise, especially for people with certain chronic health conditions. It is generally low impact, and helps with cardio. I know when I use a stationary bike it’s sometimes hard on my knees, but that didn’t happen with the road bike I went out on. In general, I found it to be good exercise, something I could control in terms of how much effort I put in (in other words, you can choose not to overdo it), and was fun! Please consult with your healthcare team before starting any new exercise. Check out this podcast episode about the evidence-based treatments for chronic pain that helps explain why this type of exercise is important. Keep making the most of it everyone!
