Bladder Cancer Clinical Trial
Low-moderate Intensity Pedaling During Immunotherapy Administration
The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility pedaling using an under-the desk bike during immunotherapy infusions. Also, the study hopes to evaluate how pedaling impacts quality of life and treatment response biomarkers. Lastly, the study will evaluate the relationships between treatment response and muscle mass which is evaluated with computerized tomography (CT) scans.
Minimum age of 18
Renal Cell Carcinoma, cutaneous malignancies (Melanoma, Merkel Cell Carcinoma or Squamous Cell CA) or bladder cancer.

Severe cardiac history or comorbidities (i.e. heart failure, clinically significant aortic stenosis, history of cardiac arrest, have a cardiac defibrillator, uncontrolled angina, uncontrolled arrhythmias, major heart surgery, stroke, or pulmonary embolus).
Chest pain or severe shortness of breath at rest or with physical activity.
Orthopedic impediments to exercise (i.e. joint immobility or lower extremity lymphedema).

Patients will be excluded from study if their immunotherapy treatment requires the use of sedating antihistamines prior to treatment.
