    Health Seminar Series for cyclists

    If anyone in the greater Madison area is interested in attending one to four free seminars on health-related cycling topics, here's your chance. They're all free.

    Since they are for "advanced cyclists" I doubt I'll be going. I did attend last year's single 2 hour seminar that touched several of these same topics, in less depth.

    "Health-related cycling topics" for advanced cyclists only? I don't get it.

    This is the 50+ forum, guys and gals. Of course, its "Advanced in Age."

    Where is the seminar on "cycling and sex" for the advanced (in age) cyclist?

    "The interface between a cyclist and his or her bike involves pressure in specific anatomic locations which can lead to the compression of nerves. Alison Brooks will discuss the cause, symptoms and treatment of handlebar- and saddle-related compression injuries. Heidi Ploeg will share recent findings related to pelvic motion and saddle pressure during cycling that may help you to find the best saddle for you."

    Hmmm ... given my on-going fight with pain in my thumb, perhaps I should think about going to this one.

    OTOH, I already found the answer to my thumb pain and saddle discomfort ... recumbent bike!
