    I started back cycling when I retired in 2007 at 65 after a 20 year break, with a few health issues ^BP, diabetes type II, but both well controlled and enjoying cycling it was even helping to control my sugar level by managing to keep it at a normal reading but after 3½ years I developed Tinnitus together with a balance issue, the balance problem has now resolved as the Tinnitus settled to a level that I can cope with. So after 18 months I found the bike in much better condition than myself fortunately I had serviced it before I covered it up and locked it in the shed.
    Most of what I do next is common sense but I am surprisingly nervous about starting back they say that muscles have memory, I am now 70 but any tips anyone?

    Wear a heart rate monitor and keep it below about 132 bpm
