This past Friday I slipped and fell on the sidewalk in front of a resturant. Since i was carrying my granddaughter I twisted so she would not be injured. The end result is I hit my bad knee and twisted my side. The doctor at urgent care said I did not brak anythin and suggested I stay off of the knee for a while (week) Should I return to bike riding on Monday? That is how I get to work. It is ten miles round trip. I have rested as much as I can and I am taking the pills as perscribed. At my age , 55 yrs. one can not stay off the bike for long periods of time.
