any recommendations for some low impact cardio? Think I will be going insane without any riding for the next month.
Ive been unable to ride, well, sort of. I can do Downiville. Just cant ride uphill due to my injury. I basically just go crazy, try and get some other things done around the house and work. Then when I can ride all the other responsibilities are done. Oh yeah, and I still go nuts. Hopefully I can atleast get on the road bike later this week and spin laps arouond the block or something.baycat said:nevermind...found a good suggestion
recovering from broken ribs, broken wrist and a dislocated shoulder I went to my local gym and rode the recumbent stationary and the elyptical trainer. This kept me in pretty good shape until I was able to ride my bike again. It was real, real, real boring though.baycat said:
UGI is def happening, rear wheel and maybe whole wheelset, fork and maybe other bits.
I might wait a few weeks and do some very flat singletrack, shoreline out in CC.
Only thing at gym that keeps me motivated is staring at girls on elipticals while I am on stationary bike.
Hiking might be a good thing, and I can yell at all the reckless MTBikers
...there is a calorie counter for off bike activities.baycat said:
of looks when I was at the gym with a sling for my left shoulder and a cast on my right wrist :skep: It was interesting pedaling the recumbent stationary without holding the bar and doing the elyptical without holding anything... it really helped my balancing skillsbaycat said:swimming and running would be great, those were my competitive sports back in the day. Problem is I have little mobility in my shoulder, maybe in about two weeks. Do some good swimming.
It def. sucks being injured during the best riding season, but I am hoping to be back by late July. Snow should be gone from Tahoe by then for sure.
Crazy Horse, how bout Adam and Eve.....mmmmm or Centerfolds, but they are under "new management" and their rules suck!
I got news for ya, it didnt help your balance at all. I watched you fall off that log 4 times in one day.scheckler said:of looks when I was at the gym with a sling for my left shoulder and a cast on my right wrist :skep: It was interesting pedaling the recumbent stationary without holding the bar and doing the elyptical without holding anything... it really helped my balancing skills
