Yes, my son was riding his bicycle when a large dog ran into his bicycle, killing the dog and my son Has 9 fractured ribs and a concussion. He was transported to the hospital where they examined him and he was sent home after spending a night in the hospital.
My son averaged 10-15 miles a day weather permitting. (he was wearing a helmet which split in 2 places and saved him from even more serious injuries) What is the outlook for him?

Hi, My name is Srini. I have Chronic Pancreatitis since the past 15 years. The doctor performed an ERCP and placed a stent inside the pancreas. First in 2008 then replaced it in 2013 and replaced it again last week. I am very much interested in Cycling. Could you please tell me whether it is safe to ride cycles both short and long distances ? Or will it worsen my Pancreatitis ?

I get chest pain when exerting riding my bicycle, typically at the start of a long ride, avg 20 mile ride. The pain subsides quickly under less strenuous riding. I’ve been to a Cardiologist and even been fitted with a 24 hour monitor with no cause diagnosed. Is it safe to continue riding.? Are there possible dietary causes, e.g., coffee? Thank you

I was riding a bicycle Monday night and the pedal broke and when I fell off the bike I got severe road rash . It is now 2 days later and my leg has a burning sensation and really sharp pains. The knee and ankle have small bruises and the shin is really bruised. Could I have broken my fibula or tibia? I am still able to walk on my right leg but it hurts quite a bit.
