Our car just broke, so my husband had to ride a bike on his first true commute ever yesterday, just a week after he sprained his ankle, no less. I was slightly worried, to say the least.
He reported that his ankle hurt like hell going to class (I imagine he was trying to rush to be on time), but was fine coming home.
Today is his second day of going the 4 miles to class, and home.
He has a weeping, not bleeding, sore in the crease of his buttock on the right side where it meets his leg. Left side is just red and irritated. When I asked him about it he shrugged and said it stung. Obviously he is a guy and won't do anything about it but suffer. I don't want him to get seriously hurt and quit riding as soon as the car gets fixed.
He is currently riding a women's Huffy (Chainless you can see in the photobucket account link in my signature) with its stock rock-hard seat.
