Subject: [CR]Cycling after a brainstem stroke. Charlie in Brooklyn, NY

Hello to all: I'm recovering from a brainstem stroke and my doctors say that I have more than enough balance to cycle again, but away from all traffic. There's a one mile cement oval in a park about 20 minutes from home and I could put a bike in the trunk and drive to the park for an hours' worth of exercise. Have any of you had a stroke and resumed cycling? What problems did you incur? What sort of "affordable" classic or new bike would you recommend that has very stable and predictable steering? I'm leaning more towards a ladies step through frame. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Charlie
