    a fanatical spinner who bruised ribs. when can I get back in the saddle guys?

    hey guys im posting from Dublin, Ireland. I spin 5 times a week and LOVE it but fell and bruised my ribs 2 weeks ago. Still tender.. but definately improved. Has anyone done this and how long before you could ride again?

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    Welcome to BF.
    Ask this in the Road Cycling forum or General Cycling forum.
    What bike(s) do you ride? Got pics?

    spinning as in sationary?

    bruised/cracked ribs are a hard injury to come back from...it takes alot of time to heal I've broken 3, and briused/cracked numerous other times.

    the only thing you can do is wrap youself, and I'd say do as much as you can within your pain limits...
