Cycling Injuries and Prevention

Despite the commonly accepted thought, cycling is a full body activity, not just using the lower half. Desk job cyclists have to spend many waking hours in the same position.

I ran in the 2nd race of the Wiltshire Off Road Race League on Sunday, The Wickstead Wander, and accidentally came 2nd lady 🙂 It’s a relatively flat course, on fields and track with the odd water jump and fences thrown in. I was apprehensive about doing an off road as I have been rehab-ing…
