Living with an AUS- Bikes, etc

I have had my AUS in now just over a yr. I have not ridden a bike for years and bought one this summer. I can't help but notice, riding a bike- specificly using the bike seat- causes me to leak.

Life with a AUS- how is it going for you?

Hi Trew,

I have a stationary bike and have used a split seat by Hobson for years with no problem.

Have had the AUS for about two years now. You and I corresponded prior to your AUS. Mine has always worked and still works very well, but the idea of a bike seat or even a hard (wooden seated chair) can tend to activate the AUS by itself. I have two nice mountain bikes hanging in the garage. The thought of riding them keeps me from taking them down off their hooks. I rarely have leakage, and it mostly occurs when I am in a hurry after urinating----say at a golf course, but I still wear a Tena pad for security. The thought of tan slacks wetting is not pretty, but not really a worry. I just wish to take no chances.

I remember distinctly Trew your trials and tribulations with incontinence. I am glad that life is improving for you, especially since you seem to be so active. Best wishes.

You should get that bike down. I retired and moved to Az this April and just puchased a bike a month ago and i really enjoy it. I just know that if I sit on certain spots I can lose urine.

I was out backpacking this July in Colorado for 6 days. I noticed if I sat in a certain position on the ground I could leak. But I do not wear pads- I hope to never do that again.

OK- from harvs I see I might have better results with a different kind of bike seat.

I will look into it. Good guy support here.

thanks.

Take me along with you to that out in the wild country free wind ride. The Easy Rider bikes’ style of Fonda’s movie provides a better posture and one may enjoy the feeling of the wind in their chest hair too. LOL

Enjoy the trip.

A tadpole trike at 46 mph and yes they will flip .I have one a these and a two wheel also the tad pole is easier to ride and a bit more relaxing. There are some serios 2 wheel racers! They currently will not allow them to compete in regular bike races.
