My husband has a love of roller blading and he is going to order his new skates to get back into it and get back into shape. I myself hate skating (and honestly I think it would be a bad choice for me to try at this weight) but I've always loved biking. In the coming months at some point I'm going to have the gastric bypass, but in the meantime I would like to find a recumbent bike that can support me at nearly 500lbs. This is probably a lot to ask for. I have looked at the PAV but I was hoping to find something that might hold me and be able to go the distance as I lose the weight and will inevitably want to go faster and farther. Is there such a bike? I'm not going to say there is a price limit, because when it comes to health I don't think such a thing should exist, but I'm trying to stick to around $1000. Don't hesitate to point me in the right direction if there is a bike that exists and is more expensive though, I need all the help I can get with this.
Thank you ahead of time.
