Reshared post from Jan Moren:

My wife recently qualified as a physiotherapist, and happily confirmed how problematic the knee is. I fell off my recumbent bicycle recently and ended up with a tear is a ligament in my knee that has taken weeks to recover from.Thanks for the share +Jan Moren Original Post from Jan Moren:Our leg design sucks. And even more when compared to species that have been bipedal for a much longer time than us.I remember when I first looked up how our knees actually work mechanically.

Happy 50th

Absolutely delighted to turn 50 at last. Feels like a proper age, and I can stop feeling like the kid on the block about to be found out to be an imposter. Two fantastic presents. Firstly, and best of all, a new hand-made shirt from my wife, the first for years (she has been too busy studying). Secondly, a motorcycle again. I have been promising myself one of these for years. Also, enjoyed a great meal out on my brother at the King and Thai near Ironbridge with my brother and Read more […]

Telford CyclewaysAnyone here familiar with the cycle paths in and around Telford? Maybe there are some maps you could point me to. I am particularly interested in those that are apart from the roads. I recently purchased a recumbent bicycle and am not keen to learn to ride it amongst road traffic at the moment.

Broke my ICE B1I only purchased this a few weeks ago, my first recumbent. Bought as new from old stock under the UK Government's Cyclescheme (tax free). Work commitments, snow & ice, and a knee injury mean I have hardly used it. A few hours only, all on my driveway or nice tarmac covered car parks.Was trying to get good at starting off on less than perfect ground (gravel on my drive) yesterday and turned the handlebars hard when they suddenly sheered away and I pitched over.I have sent an Read more […]

Bent my knee

Bent my knee on a bent. Given I laughed at +Julian Schwarzenbach’s expense when he fell off his bike a little while ago, I feel he should have a chance to repay the compliment. At least I have a (nearly fully qualified) physiotherapist at home in +Lucy Moore (and +Anna stanaj is missing out on this revision opportunity having now left behind her student accommodation of our home). (Apologies to all of the above for sending a Google Message rather than including you on this post in the Read more […]

Recumbent cycling

I may well regret this, but I have decided to invest in a recumbent bicycle. I have been thinking about getting a bike again for the last couple of years, prompted in part by the Government’s cycle to work scheme that effectively allows you to purchase a bike against gross income rather than net, post tax, pay. I used to enjoy cycling a lot, but I was of course much lighter and fitter then. In more recent years, I have found bikes far too uncomfortable to ride for long, even with so-called comfy Read more […]
