Injuries and cycling
Assuming your bike is set up properly, what are the chances of getting a non-crash injury through cycling? I was led to believe that cycling was a relatively low-risk activity due to the low impact of it, yet I'm sat here with a rather painful injury that's suddenly crept up and has lasted months and doesn't seem to be improving. Is the risk of injury higher than most would like to believe or is it just that the the average human body is useless at doing anything more strenuous than walking down the shop for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread? I mean censored . The human body is supposed to be amazing, and it is, it heals itself when cut or thumped, adapts to stresses, and stops microbes from getting in and taking over, and rids itself of poisons, but despite all these amazing properties it can't seem to handle repeated pressing down on a pair of pedals without getting broken? WTF?!!?!?!
