Sounds like projects that will be washed before use seem like the best to try.

I admit I've been tempted to do some knitting on the recumbent bike, but I get ridiculously sweaty when I work out--dripping in my eyes, etc, and I usually hit the bike after the treadmill/elliptical. I don't want to get my project all funky, you know?

Ooh, I definitely can't do anything on the elliptical! I'll have to try crocheting on the stationary bike and report back on how it went!

Yeah I definitely couldn't handle that. I can hardly read on the elliptical! Speaking of, though, I think I might head over to the gym!

in grad school i used to read articles and take notes on the elliptical trainer. i don't think i could knit, though. i could only do things that i could abandon quickly to slam my hand down on the handrail in case i started to fall. i can't imagine the sophie's choice of dropping a stitch vs. falling on my ass...

I have not.
I figure it's an accident waiting to happen and I don't need to be more embarrassed at my gym than I already am!

Some of the bikes at my gym are set up so you can easily read while using them. Has anyone tried crafting while on these kinds of exercise bikes? Like knitting or crochet?
