cycling as a form of exercise?

Posted by Jan C on 2/19/01 at 18:45 (039417)

Is cycling a good form of exercise? I would probably do it at the gym (on a fixed base cycle) rather than on the road.

Also - can orthotics cause pf? I only had minimal morning heel pain until I had specially made orthotics - then it became almost unbearable. I have not been pain free since then - 18 months now!

Any other offers of help would be appreciated.

Any other suggestions.

Biking is great. Swimming is better. Yes improper orthosis can make pf worse.
