002 VETERANS

VETERANS:

Major pitfalls of the ageing veteran cyclist:

Ageing is a fact of life and impacts negatively on an active life style. The crunch comes especially after the age of 50. The challenges the veteran and cyclist has to contend with include:
Lower neck pain from arthritis
Upper back pain from osteoarthritis of the vertebra
Lower back pain from arthritis
Chronic, intermittent knee pain from arthritis
Fatigue due to slower recovery and over-use
Insomnia due to overtraining
Obesity due to ageing
Medications (and the side-effects) needed to treat high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol

Tips:

Re-check bike fit for ageing - visit Francois du Toit at his Rozendal Cycle Shop or call him on 9100441 or 0832731986

Elevate the stem of the bike to reduce the stretch and weight-factor on tired bones

Check saddle height to prevent or reduce knee pain. This can also improve lower backache

Fit a soft saddle to reduce saddle sores and discomfort

Increase back-cog sizes to reduce fatigue on climbing hills.

A front-triple blade has the same positive effect

Careful supplementation and diet adjustment is needed to address fatigue and exhaustion
