I am a cardiologist and my main area of cardiology is arrhythmias.
I am hoping to collect some information regarding the risk of atrial fibrillation and cycling (partly as I am an avid cyclist and am curious about my own risk).
The previous literature pertaining to this is clouded by the mix of training and experience of cyclists (usually it only includes hours on the bike and how many years).
The beauty about using trainer road is many of us will be using the same programs.
What I would be interested in knowing is whether you have had atrial fibrillation and your training history. It would be more robust if you have had an echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) but that is not necessary. Equally important would be including people without atrial fibrillation with similar training plans so if this is you and your interested let me know.
Everything would be kept anonymous.
Just testing the waters to see if there is interest
