I am aged 58 years. Upto the age of 25 used to cycle every day for not less than 4-5 kms per day. Now I am cycling 5-7 kms per day for body fitness. Every day, In the starting used to get leg pain, above knees, not unbearable. However, after 1-2 kms there will not be any pain. Can I cycle every day like this. I am 85 kgs weight. I also used to play cricket from my child hood to the age of 25 and from 25 years of age till 51 years of age used to play Table Tennis.

Cycling is a very good exercise only if you dont have back pain and knee pain.The pain could be due to degenerative changes(arthritis) in the knee joint.U can get xray done to rule out any bony changes.Walk (on an even surface) for about 30 min and eat a well balanced diet to loose weight.
Dear RAO your weight 85 kms ,but you have not mentioned your hight. How ever let me have a talk with you. So that I can give one AYURVEDIC medicine . OK
Its excellent to hear that you have been keeping active even at the age of 58. Well done, indeed! Unless you have persistent pain around your knee or hip you have nothing to worry. You may be having some stiffness of the knee from underlying arthritis. Since the level of pain is bearable, there is nothing to worry.
