    Pregnancy & Cycling

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I'm expecting my 1st baby at the end of July. My husband & I enjoy riding our tandem during the spring & summer. We realize we'll need to modify our cycling due to my pregnancy. I was wondering if anyone could provide insight on cycling while pregnant (how long were you able to continue cycling, did you make changes to the bike, etc.). Thanks.

    Congrats on your pregnancy!

    I rode my bike up until I was about 6 months pg and had no problems. The biggest thing was my tummy being in the way when I leaned over to reach the handle bars. I did go out and buy a gel seat for my bike which made a big difference. Also, my rides weren't that long..maybe an hour at the most. I usually rode around to do errands.

    You can find some good cycling clothes for preggies at title 9 sports (www.title9sports.com)

    have fun and good luck.
