Are you a mountain biker or road rider? You may have traumatic epididymitis which is usually found in the former but not exclusive to mountain bikers.
Remember, epididymitis is usually non-traumatic injury but rather caused by bacteria ; sometimes from sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia and gonorrhoea. It is also possible from prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate) or genito-urinary tract surgery especially when the prostate gland has been removed. Also, have you had a vasectomy? If it keeps reoccuring, let your urologist know. There may be something else going on and he may want to do some tests and it may or may not be related to biking.
Ride forever, work whenever.
Eat more mud, mountain bike 'till you die!
