Cycling for Heavy Riders: Cycling for Heavy Riders Slide2: Starting to cycle is a fantastic way to exercise. It is not difficult for your joints. Like what all bikers experience however, there are discomforts which are but natural. But before anything else, test the tools you'll need. Check your bike, clothing, and equipment. Set everything up as if you are actually going for a tour. You can practice biking for a distance of 40 miles. See if you are feeling any of the following: Slide3: 1) Shortness of breath or tightening of the chest. If you have a medical history of asthma, then it might be the culprit. In the first place, asthma can be brought about by allergens or by polluted air. It can even get worse if you get exposed for a number of days. If this is the case, then it is the right time to see the doctor. Slide4: 2) Numbness, tingling sensation or pain on your fingers and/or wrists. If this is the case, you have to move your hands more around on your bike. If your handlebars only admit one position, try aero bars. You may also opt for other substitute handlebar positions that are installed. If you use padded bike gloves, try not to bend your wrists, so you won't add more weight on them. Slide5: 3) Discomfort on the seat. A little bit of rubbing of the skin to the bike seat can result in ingrown hairs and saddle sores for a number of days. So make sure you are geared properly. It's best to wear biking shorts and pants. It will also help a lot if you do not wear underwear. Your bike seat plays a crucial role as well. Purchasing the biggest seat that you can possibly find won't solve the problem but will only further irritate your rear. Take it from the pros and search for online reviews of bike seats that do not cause too much chafing. Visiting a reputable bike shop also helps. Talk to a well-rounded sales person who is able to tell you what type of seat will best suit your shape. Slide6: 4) Pain on the knee. If you experience this, tour seat may probably be too low or you may be pedaling too much on a higher gear. So it's best to fine-tune your seat to an angle of less than 90 degrees with your bended knees. Also, use lower gears. But before you do anything else, it's best to consult a physician.
