Sure: Good to excellent cardiovascular and resistance exercise (if you don't coast too much); not great weight bearing exercise greater degrees of osteopenia have worse fracture risks than lesser degrees. Riding a bike is fine; falling off has the fracture risk. Have fun, be active.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
