Last week I crashed hard. The bike's okay , but I sustained a few injuries. Besides road rash, I wrenched my shoulder, bruised my hip, and cracked a few ribs. My helmet saved me from definite concussion. My question to anyone who has ever broken their ribs is, how long before I can expect to get back on the bike? Right now breathing is painful and I don't think I could handle the bumps just yet. I was hoping to train for a century ride in mid-October. I hope my time recuperating doesn't set me back too much.
