Complimentary exercise? - 22:10
Good to see Leon still appears to be enjoying his cycling, he wonders what sport would be good to compliment the cycling and exercise the upper body. My suggestion would be kayaking, on flat water with a racing kayak it can be fun, faster than expected and a damn good workout. Of course using a slalom/rapids kayak is a lot slower than a racing kayak but they are likely more common.

I may be saying this as I need to get out and start doing some kayaking again soon (I have not done any for over 7 years currently) as I will need the skills up a bit for competing in a few upcoming adventure races. However unlike swimming it is no where near as boring, and unlike squash (which is anaerobic anyway) it is not high impact. There is a small problem of finding a kayak and paddle, however friends often have them, as do some outdoor clubs, such as the ANU mountaineering club.
