I am getting back on my bike after about a ten year hiatus. I was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma almost two years ago, and after some bad months of chemo etc. I am in remission and feeling good. I have been a tandem rider (burley), road rider (trek), and MTB rider (raleigh). I recently bought an older Panasonic ten speed and am in the process of converting it to a S/S or fixie. Hoping for a great spring/summer/fall of riding.

Hello hddan, I will keep up positive thoughts for you! The bike riding will keep you going, and it helps relief stress and depression. (I know personally whereof I speak).

Welcome to BF!

I am sure I feel better while I am riding. My oncology Dr. is a past Cat. 1 bike racer and rides for fitness now. He, obviously, is a big proponent of cycling for health.

That really helps when your oncologist knows how positive cycling is for you. I know that I have had changes in my work schedule which meant that I go to work in the dark, and come home in the dark. Even though I ride home, I still like to get out and either ride or walk in the day, just so I can see some light.

But the cycling is wonderful, no matter what .
