Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to let you know I created a topic Stationary Bike One Week Challenge where members can sign up to do their stationary bicycling tracking for a one week period. If you are interested and it will help keep you motivated and accountable please check it out. I am open for suggestions on how to change it up in the future.

I ride the stationary bike when I am circuit training. I can't stand to ride it for more than 10 minutes at a time.

I have a stationary bike that I ride when it is to muddy or windy. I will ride it for 30 min.
I think that the cardio tracker should track stationary bike like the treadmill. different levels and speed.

We have an exercise bike but I cannot use it, due to my bad knees. The exercise center at our local clinic has purchased a recumbent bike which I hope to try. Unfortunately it came without its pedals, so I must wait til that is resolved. Meanwhile I am using the elliptical, for around 20 minutes, while my husband uses the treadmill. He uses the exercise bike for 20 mins. at a time, 3 times each day, then down to the clinic for 20 mins. on the treadmill in poor weather OR 20 mins. on our local hiking trail reclaimed from an abandoned railroad roadbed when weather allows. I swim 2ce a week, hike to do errands when weather allows, join him for the elliptical when it doesn't. It takes a lot of exercise to move a pound at our age, especially at my poor speed!

I love my stationary bike. It is a true antique but fits right. I play chameleon kid with an old plug and play while I pedal away 40-45 minutes. A monthly challenge would be nice. Just rode so many timed, not minutes.

My stationary bike is in the garage and broken, but when it worked I just could not get into it.
I know lots of people enjoy them and I applaud you for taking it 10 minutes at a time- it adds up and is a more workable solution for many.

What I would like to know from members who have responded- would you like me to create a topic for Stationary bike tracking/accountablity? How would you like it set up in a monthly recording challenge or weekly? Would you rather it just be someplace where you come and comment on how much you did that day like this thread and just keep it simple.

Let me know since I am open to suggestions to open up the Exercise/Fitness forum so a wider variety of members can look and participate however they like.

Hi,
I love my stationary bike! Just bought a new one and a friend helped me set up programs so I have a course now...part easy, part hard. I am able to do 30 minutes a day so far, and I am thankful. Goal is two sessions of 30 minutes per day. I am anxious to get outside and ride on the great bike trails we have in Denver!!

I hoping fingers crossed that .4 or other small amounts at a time means I won't have the lose skin to deal with later that you hear of with rapid weight loss. I too do the stationary bike sometimes in little bits sometimes during a tv show when I don't realize how fast or far I've gone until I get tired or the show goes off.


"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're COMMITTED to something, you accept NO EXCUSES; only results."

I tired of being sick and tired all the time!! Time to do something about it!!

And This Too Shall Pass.
