Hi, my name is Hedi Alavi, and I'm going to explain how to ride a bicycle with bad knees. So cycling is actually a lot of times prescribed by doctors for people with bad knees, especially people who want to exercise who are runners previously, or do a lot of high impact sport activities. It's a great way to get your cardio to get that intensity in without the impact. So the first thing that I always see on people is that their seat is either too low or too close to the handle bars. So whether it's an indoor bike or an outdoor bike, you definitely want to make sure that you're setup correctly for your bike. A good way to check this is that when you're seated in the saddle, you look down at your, at you knees and your toes, and your toes should always be peaking out a little bit from under your knees. So you have a slight bend in your knee only when your foot is at the bottom of the pedal stroke. Now another way to avoid pain, or avoid even getting knee pain, is, you know, you always have to have a very smooth and continuous pedal stroke, so a very circular pedal stroke. Now if you put on a lot of resistance that you break up that circle into squares or into triangles, then you're definitely gonna put a lot of pressure into your knees. Just avoid, you know, big climbs, a lot of strength rides, and avoid climbing hills and you should be just fine.
