Break convinces Ken to cycle indoors

AFTER recently breaking his collar bone tearing down a mountain on his bike in Tumut, Ken Crampton thinks he may stick to indoor riding.

In fact, he's so impressed with the Infiniti exercise bike that he's donated one to the Maclean Community Health Physiotherapy Unit - well not personally, but the Lions Club of Maclean where he's been a member for the past 30 years.

It's a great addition to the unit and will play a vital role in rehabilitating stroke and pulmonary patients and those who have undergone knee and hip replacements.

Physiotherapist James Mc Innes says this exercise bike is a cut above the others, being the easiest machine to mount and dismount, essential for the elderly who make up a large proportion of his patients.

“We are really grateful to the Lions club for this. It will really get people moving” he said

“Having another bike will make our service so much more flexible, as it's the most frequently used piece of equipment here.”

The energy efficient bike measures heart rate, body fat, speed and time but for Mr Campton nothing will beat his thrice weekly rides around Woodford Island, maybe just not so fast next time.
