I am a married mother of 2 kids (3 and 1) I am a retired police officer who was hurt on the job and had a Spinal Fusion L-5/S-1 in 2004. I was always very active and athletic until I was hurt. Now I find that I have to tweak my workouts around my back. I used to be an avid Mountain Biker but gave my bike away (Raleigh) after the dr told me I shouldn't ride anymore. I have since gotten other opinions from Neurosurgeons saying it's ok to ride moderately. So, I came to this forum in hopes of support and encouragement that there is active life after back surgery:) I look forward to learning more about a bike that will fit my body and injury so I can get back on my way to my active lifestyle I am so accustomed to.

I see in the Recumbent forum that many people with back problems find a recumbent to be the right choice.
