Thanks for the query.
It is very common to get bruised after cycling.
As you age your blood vessels,capillaries and skin becomes very fragile and on top of it if there is constant friction,bruising is bound to happen.
When some large amounts of blood is leaked,it can cause small local lump.
There is nothing to worry.
Just take rest and apply local ice.
It should be all right soon.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
