I have the honor of having been invited to address a bariatric support group at the local hospital on the role that cycling can play as form of physical exercise.
But, problem is, I have only one week to build up a PowerPoint presentation on the subject from scratch... unless someone has one in their back pocket that they'd be willing to email to me ?
I need specific equipment recommendations for conventional bikes, recumbents, trikes, and quad cycles. Makes, models, specifications.
And pointers on how these folks should get started, and ideas about training programs, assuming they haven't been on a bike in years. What are reasonable weight loss expectations? Bariatric specific safety advice would be greatly appreciated.
Whatever you think of. A Clydesdale FAQ would be great.
I am going to search this forum and do my own work, but if any of you could give me a head start, that would be great.
