With the long-awaited arrival spring this year (I am really looking forward the nice weather coming on Monday!), why not having a go at cycling and discovering all the brilliant free activities which exist not too far from your home in this sport? :D

I used to do Breeze rides - run by British Cycling local leaders to get women back into cycling. They were fab as would never leave anyone behind, and usually ended in a tea room with cake!!

Ah ah ah! :lol: You are teasing me with some medical abbreviations!!! Does AKP stands for 'Anterior Knee Pain'? Does OA stands for 'Osteoarthritis'?

Dear forumites with no AKP nor OA, here are some health advantages of cycling:

From the NHS website:

For forumites with OA, here is an article of interest:

For forumites with AKP, please ask advice from doctor Hermanmunster!!! :wink:
