For a while now I’ve thought about purchasing a bike in order to get in some decent exercise. I’m not great at walking long distances (due to my RRMS), so I was looking for another avenue. However, I’m on holiday at the moment and I thought I’d try out my mother-in-law’s bike…. the results were not great to say the least!!
I’m now 44 and haven’t ridden a bike since my late teens (not necessarily down to MS), and I’m severely out of practice. I’m not really sure if today’s unfortunate results were down to my confidence, or whether the MS is playing a major role.
I don’t intend to travel to work on the bike, or go for long rides (at least in the beginning), so I don’t need anything ‘high-end’.
So, I have a couple of questions and wonder if anyone could please give me some advice?
1. Can you recommend any exercises that specifically work on the knees, as I feel this could be the where the problem lies
2. I’ve read that recumbent bikes can be good for MS sufferers. Does anyone have experience of these?
