No More Knee Pain – Six Tips for Safer Cycling

/ 1 Comment

Not only is bicycling super fun, it’s generally very safe and easy on your body as well. It’s low impact and highly aerobic, meaning it gets your heart rate up without wearing down your body. Unlike sports such as running or basketball, you’re in no danger of colliding with another person, and your legs never have to bang into the ground. Instead, they’re moving in stress-free, low impact circles.

But even the safest activities have the occasional risk, especially if you’re not adhering to proper form. One complaint we’ve heard from some of our bicycling friends is that after a long ride, their knees hurt.

So, it bring us great pleasure to see another organization that’s adopted this same mentality. In Europe, Spain is building playgrounds and parks specially made for retirees and golden-agers. Check out the video below!
