Hi, I have degenerative disc disease and have had a lot of surgery on my spine. Walking is by far the best thing for me, but for when I can’t I use a cross trainer, I love it, it’s very low impact and easy on my joints. I got it from Argos, I can’t remember the exact price but it wasn’t more than £120. It doesn’t fold, however it doesn’t take up masses of space either. :)
Desk Cycle / Mini Bike might be worth considering.
For over all physically and mentally, a bike in your house probably wont be as good for you a decent walk. If you spend a lot of time sitting and then your only exercise is sitting on a bike it wont help get your lower spine get the relief it needs. Slippery streets? Not around my way, maybe would look in to some decent walking trainers to keep your mind and body going in differnet ways!
Thanks, I'll check that out! Can you recommend a particular brand, or bike style, that would be good?
Check out Facebook marketplace. There are many to choose from. Most are not foldable though ! Check out Argos as there are two folding ones in their catalogue or online.
