I'm relatively new to cycling and thought that it would be really good if some of you experienced cyclists out there could please tell me and others the most common cycling injuries that you have suffered from, why you have suffered from them and the easiest way to prevent that injury occuring. You see I have just injured the outside of my knee which the physio has said is a really common injury amongst cyclists, and is caused by the ITB Band tightening up from cycling and then getting inflamed where it crosses over the bone on the outside of the knee. The physio said that the way to prevent this is by stretching the ITB band before and after a ride to stop it getting tight. If I had known this could happen then I would have been doing these stretches on the ITB band right from day one and I could have prevented this injury. So could you experienced cyclists please take a little bit of time and share your experiences to help all of us newer cyclists????? Thanks very much, look forward to your replies.
