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 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...
