    Cyclists ,watch Out For Your Important Bits.!

    Many claims have been made about df riding causing impotence.
    Now i read a artical in Cycling Plus about a study done on moutain
    bikers showing that 88% of them have scrotal abnormalitys compard with 26% of none cyclists.,and that they only had a sperm count which was a 3rd of non cyclists.
    Yet another reason to ride a recumbent.

    Yeah, but we have so many other abnormalities, that the scrotal thing is really no big deal!

    This is true.
    Most people think abnormal because i ride a recumbent.
    But then again years ago i would have been abnormal saying the world is round.

    Should there be a poll on "Scrotal Abnormalities" to gauge the impact of cycling on motility counts among the male BF membership? On second thought, maybe we shouldn't go there....

    Good night and joy be with you all.

    That is a non-scientific interpretation of an article in The Lancet medical journal. The origanl paper made it quite clear that the control group were cycle commuting medical students NON non-cyclists.
    The mountain bikers were not weekend warriers, but hardcore extreme downhill riders who rode every day they could.
