Recumbent biking helped my Sciatica recovery

After reading many articles about sciatica pain and recumbent bike riding I felt it too was my story. Right now I can barely stand at times, but I can pedal for hours with no pain. I’ve always had a touchy back since a car accident in my late 20’s. So back pain was no new… Continue reading Recumbent biking helped my Sciatica recovery

2 flats in 1 week
