My mom has bad lower back pain. She does not get much exercise and I am thinking of recommending she and my dad buy bikes and start going for leisurely rides. I'm hoping this will get her exercise while enjoying some time outside. Also hopefully strengthening her back almost without her even knowing she is doing so. She is constantly going to a chiropractor and a masseuse and it just isn't helping her back pain. Personally, I think she needs more exercise.
Can anyone recommend a bike, or bikes, for my parents? They are in their mid-late 50's. My dad has just recently lost 100 lbs. just by watching his diet and doing an afternoon walk. I know he would enjoy the activity with mom and I am hoping to get her more active as well.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
