Thumb Adventure Riding First Aid

I thought this might be of some interest on first aid and bike fitness. Given that the adventure season is about to begin it might be timely

http://adventure-motorcyclingh.com/2...s-on-the-road/

http://adventure-motorcycling.blogsp...-training.html

They are both interseting and informative.

Tx for the links. I like his blurb about ride fitness, the concept of "the repeated bout effect" and conclusion:
"In fact, a recent systematic review of the scientific literature concluded that massage, cryotherapy, stretching and low-intensity exercise are not very effective for treating the signs and symptoms of exercise-induced muscle damage."

Had a good laugh at the article about off-road riding good for your health.

The 'before' photo of this fat mama road-rider. Is it a bloke or a bearded lady? Waiting for the 'after' photo of a leaner rider on a Tenere. Not holding my breath.

Surely it's the bearded lady, as this must be the "after" photo from the same site:

Amazing what a bit of exercise can do!
