Fellow thinkerer (Did I just coin a word: “thinker”+”tinkerer”? I guess not) Dave Riley has posted an essay on optimizing footbike exercise (with a little input from me) on his ‘blog (which is always bookmark-worthy).
When I began scootering my primary interest was that here was a device that, despite my stiffness and pain, was a means to get about. Easy hop on: hop off. Walk along side if you are tuckered out.
Then I started logging the distances, using it as a primary means of transport and in effect anchoring a lot of my activity atop its running board.
It has been a great journey and en route I’ve exercised more and built up my physical confidence because of this two wheeled no chain no gears bike.
