    hi everybody

    broke my collarbone :mad: last sunday descending the Ballaghbeama Gap. now it is time to heal and get back at it. i was already registered for the Carrick Wheelers challenge, the wicklow 200 and the west cork 200. do i have any hope of getting back on the bike fast enough to do any or all of these. and does anybody have any suggestions about exercise or tricks, tips to heal better faster? have to say i am going nuts not riding and can hardly think of anything else. i miss my bike!!!!

    thanks

    Bad luck mate. Depends on how bad the break is ( Fracture or Break)?. I broke mine in a race at exactly this time of year a few years ago.Wasn't back on the road till end of July. Tried using the Turbo Trainer to keep me fit but still wasn't fully fit to race in August. Keep active and watch the weight anyway . Best of Luck ,Keep the chin up!!

    it was a break. in the middle of the bone. i hear about guys who get back into it in three weeks. i was hoping that is true.

    Sorry to hear about this, and I wish you a swift recovery

    Unfortunately every injury is different, and we are unable to allow posters to provide advice on such matters. Only your own doctor or specialist can advise on when you you can start riding again

    I therefore have to close this thread
