    Has anyone cycled with a bruised/cracked tailbone?

    The other day I was testing out my new bike, and for some reason jumped off it via the tip of the seat, which did quite a number on my tailbone. I am still not sure if it's cracked or bruised, but I am sitting on a donut as we speak!

    Has anyone else done this and continued cycling? Should I be resting it, or just keeping my weight forward? I don't want to make it worse, but I am dying to start riding. Any advice would be appreciated!

    It happened to me a year and a half ago. I was cycling and a car turned in front of me and I went right into the hood. As I went into the hood, it bent me over and I had problems with my tailbone for 10 months afterwards. It would hurt to sit down certain ways.

    Yeah, i bruised mine after going ass-over on my rollerblades.

    Luckily I didn't land right on it, but on about a 45 degree angle.

    Very painful; hurt for about a month. I couldn't sit down without feeling it.

    If the pain isn't bothering you I don't see any reason to stop.

    I know when I passed out and hit broke my tailbone on the corner of the shower I did as little sitting as possible. But there is nothing you can do about a broken tail bone. It takes forever for the pain to go completely away when you sit down on hard things (ie. wooden floors, wooden chairs for too long, etc)
