Glad you are alright now after your injury. You can ride your bike after taking a x-ray of the forearm AP / Lateral view and seeing if the fracture has united completely. Usually by 4 months the fracture will unite 100 % ..If it has completed healed with good callus (new bone) you can ride your bike for long distances.
Take care
